If you're looking to spend the day on one of Seychelles' most famous beaches, complete with rustling palms and gigantic boulders, make your way to Anse Source d'Argent. If you feel like you've seen this sandy stretch before, you probably have: Anse Source d'Argent has been used as the backdrop for numerous advertising campaigns for Bacardi Rum, Campari and Bounty Chocolate. You'll find this picturesque strip of shoreline along the southwest coast of La Digue. However, unlike other Seychelles beaches, you'll have to pay to play here. If you're looking to sprawl along Anse Source d'Argent's white sand you'll need to fork over 100 SCR (approximately $8 USD) to L'Union Estate, the plantation that sits adjacent to the beach.

Despite it being one of the only beaches requiring admission, recent visitors say that Anse Source d'Argent is well worth the trip if you're on La Digue. "Anse Source d'Argent is one of the most beautiful places I have ever visited," one TripAdvisor user claimed. "I can see why commercials are shot in this location!"

You'll find Anse Source d'Argent about a mile south of the island's ferry port. You can easily reach the sands on foot or by bike; the beach welcomes visitors any day of the year as long as L'Union Estate permits entry (you can call ahead to make sure). While here, you can also take advantage of the plantation's facilities, including the restaurant. For more information, visit the Seychelles Tourism Board's Anse Source d'Argent page.

Also known as the Côte d'Or ("Golden Coast"), Anse Volbert earns rave reviews from sun-seekers, swimmers and snorkelers for its sugary white sand and crystal clear water. Although it's one of the island's most popular beaches, Anse Volbert's size (approximately 1½ miles long) means it never feels crowded. "It's not a busy beach but for a good experience, try to go to the right to get away from all the boats," one TripAdvisor user suggested.
