At a Glance:

  • Fisherman’s bay on Mahé. The water here is really too shallow to swim, and the local fishermen sometimes leave their boats harboured in the bay.
  • Safe for families thanks to the shallow water and calm waves.
  • Police station, school, shops, supermarkets, and hiking trails can all be found nearby.
  • Great for sunset views.
  • Natural shade provides protection from the sun.

Description:

Anse Boileau is a long, curved bay on the west coast of Mahé, just along the coast from Anse à la Mouche. This is also one of the Seychelles’ administrative regions, so the area is home to a number of facilities including a police station, supermarkets, and shops. The water here is often too shallow to swim properly, but local fishermen use this to advantage, tying up their boats in Anse Boileau. This means that visitors to the bay can catch a glimpse into the everyday life of Seychellois fishermen. Getting to the beach is simple thanks to the nearby bus stop, on the main road bordering the beach. Getting here by car is also simple, and there are several parking spaces next to the beach, so holidaymakers who decide to rent a car can certainly get to Anse Boileau with ease. The surrounding area is home to a number of different buildings, including a fire station and a police station, and there are also some guesthouses nearby, so some will simply arrive at Anse Boileau on foot. The beach itself is suitable for swimming and snorkelling thanks to the small waves and the shallow water. While some parts of the beach are a bit muddy, in general the seabed is sandy and the beach itself clean. There can be some seaweed from June to September, and the beach itself may disappear at high tide, but in general there is much to like about the bay. Sometimes, you may also see windsurfers enjoying the calm ocean surface, and the beach is also great for sunset views, especially for photographs. All in all, Anse Boileau has a few tricks up its sleeve that make it worth a visit, including nearby facilities and accommodation, calm, shallow water, and easy-access via car or bus. The beach is also the start of the cross-island Chemin Montagne path, which is great for anyone who wants to walk across the island.
