At a Glance:

  • Smallish beach in the south of La Digue with two distinct sections, an open, deep area, and a protected, shallow pool area.
  • Relatively challenging hike to the beach means it’s not the best for families.
  • Accessible on-foot, about 2 km from Anse Source d’Argent. Visitors always come with a tour guide, as the beach is almost impossible to find otherwise.
  • One of the island’s best spots for photography.

Description:

Anse Marron is the southernmost beach on La Digue. As there is no coral reef off the southern coast, the water gets deep quickly, although this is negated by the presence of a shallow saltwater pool that is perfect for paddling. This small pool is protected by the large granite formations that can be found here, which also give the beach a beautiful, scenic appearance. Anse Marron can be difficult to find, and almost all tourists come here with the help of a tour guide. Your hotel will be able to put you in touch with an appropriate guide if you decide to visit this beach. As the journey can be a bit of a challenge, we wouldn’t recommend bringing children along. The path can be slippery, making it dangerous for anyone without sure footing, so take this into consideration before choosing to visit Anse Marron. However, once you do get to the beach, you’ll be met by beautiful, golden sand, stunning granite boulders, and some beautiful, protected saltwater pools. The open ocean, however, can get deep quickly due to the lack of coral reef protection, making it unsafe for swimming. The small pools, however, are definitely shallow enough to bathe in, and the granite boulders protect this section of the beach from the dangers of the open ocean. Anse Marron is definitely worth the trip for photographers and anyone wanting to dip in a shallow, crystal-clear pool. The boulders and the water combine for some excellent scenery, however, so there’s enough going on to warrant a visit. Just make sure to book a tour guide!
