At a Glance:

  • This tiny beach is the name for the sand between Pointe Canon and Grand l’Anse (not to be confused with Grand Anse). It consists of three tiny spots, spread across about 300 metres of rocky surface.
  • Unsuitable for swimming as the water is very deep and there can be currents under the water.
  • Access via Grand Anse, 15 minutes’ walk away.
  • Natural shade provides protection from the sun.

Description:

Anse Songe is a tiny beach in the south of La Digue, next to Grand Anse. While it is not immediately apparent what the draw of this beach could be, it is worth visiting for its scenic views alone. The water here is very deep, and there is no coral reef to protect it from the open ocean. Therefore, it is not safe for anyone to swim here, including confident swimmers. The easiest way to access the beach is via Grand Anse, and the walk between the two takes just 15 minutes. The parking at Grand Anse also means that arrival by car is possible, if you manage to obtain use of one (can be tricky on La Digue!). This 15-minute walk is worth doing for the views alone, which rank among the most beautiful on La Digue. Once you get to Anse Songe, you will be struck by the beauty of the location, with the mix of rocks, coral, sand, and the offshore island making it a good spot for photos. Nearby, you can also find the remains of a dwelling houses, covered with leaves, as well as a small pond filled with water lilies. Besides the view, there isn’t much you can do here. It is certainly possible to go snorkelling, but the water can be deep in places, so make sure to be extremely careful when venturing into the water. The trees that line the beach mean that you can stop for a rest in the shade, if you need to. While it doesn’t offer the widest variety of activities, Anse Songe is worth visiting for its scenery alone. The 15-minute walk from Grand Anse is especially scenic, with views of the ocean, abandoned buildings, and an offshore island being the highlights.
