  • Shade provides protection from the tropical sun.

Description:

Anse Forbans is located in the south-east of Mahé, just along the coast from other beaches such as Turtle Bay and Anse aux Pins. As with all the beaches in this region, Anse Forbans benefits from an offshore coral reef which protects it from the open ocean, ensuring a calm surface to the water and a shallow depth, making it an excellent prospect for families and children. The beach itself is located near to a number of accommodations, including some small guesthouses and hotels, as well as larger resorts such as the Hilton Allamanda Resort. Guests of these hotels make up a large part of the visitors to Anse Forbans thanks to the short walk to the sea. That said, it is also possible to reach the beach by bus thanks to the nearby bus stop. Rental cars can reach the beach, but there is no parking next to Anse Forbans, so cars must park along the main road. Once you get to Anse Forbans, you’ll be greeted by shallow, calm water with no sharp drop-off, making it safe for children and unconfident swimmers to bathe or paddle in. Additionally, guests of the Hilton Allamanda Resort can borrow snorkelling equipment, and often come here to enjoy the underwater scenery. Guests of other accommodations can ask their hotels for information if they also wish to snorkel here. Anse Forbans shares many characteristics with its neighbouring beaches, and this whole stretch of coastline has much to offer, making a visit to the area well worthwhile for any Seychelles holidaymaker.
