Anse La Réunion lies on the west coast of La Digue, near to a number of popular accommodations, such as La Digue Island Lodge and Le Surmer Chalets, both a part of our programme. While parts of the beach are often empty, its proximity to these accommodations means that there are usually people on the beach, as the area lends itself well to a number of activities. The shallow water means that you can easily bathe (low tide) or swim here (high tide) without fear of dangerous currents or choppy seas. Access to the beach is likely to be simple for the majority of visitors to Anse La Réunion. Visitors can come on-foot, by bike, or by taxi. There are a number of places to leave your bicycle, and there are a few drop-off points for taxis near a few of the small hotels. In terms of variety, Anse La Réunion is one of the best beaches on La Digue. Perfect for families thanks to the shallow water and ample shade, visitors can also enjoy swimming in the water or snorkelling. The beach is also great for sunset strolls, with the fading light of day disappearing behind Praslin, making for some spectacular vistas. And, as the beach is located near to a number of shops and restaurants, its facilities are second-to-none on La Digue. Despite all of this, the beach is usually empty, besides the sections directly in front of guesthouses, so it never feels crowded or busy. All in all, Anse La Réunion is one of La Digue’s best beaches thanks to its variety of activities, safety factor, and proximity to a number of the island’s most popular accommodations. With typically beautiful La Digue scenery and excellent facilities, you could even argue that it’s the most ‘complete’ beach on the island, and certainly one that’s worth seeing during your Seychelles holiday.
