Description:

Police Bay is the larger sister beach to Petite Police, located on the southernmost coast of Mahé, the Seychelles’ largest island. Despite the offshore coral reef, the water here is deep and choppy, making it unsuitable for swimming. The wild, natural scenery here can be rather imposing, contrasting the calm, gentle atmosphere elsewhere in the Seychelles, but providing a welcome change to the ‘traditional’ Seychelles experience. Getting to Police Bay is simple enough, with parking available at Petite Police, about a five-minute walk away. Alternatively, there is a bus stop at Anse Bazzarca, located along the coast from Police Bay, although the bus service here is infrequent. As previously suggested, Police Bay is unsuitable for swimming due to the deep, choppy water. That said, it is precisely these conditions that make Police Bay a good spot for surfing, with the waves helping rather than hindering holidaymakers who wish to try this out during their holiday. The area is also suitable for scuba diving thanks to the underwater scenery offshore from the beach. Besides that, it can be hard to see the appeal of the beach, but the incredible scenery of rocks, waves, and the old coral formations that line sections of the beach make for a unique experience. Like its smaller sister, Police Bay is a different prospect to the majority of Seychelles beaches, but that works in its favour, making it well worth a visit. Fans of surfing will especially enjoy this bay, and photographers will also find plenty of excellent shots to take home with them.
