Port Glaud, Mahé

  • At low tide, further along the coast near Port Launay South, it is possible to walk to a small offshore island at low tide.


Port Glaud Beach is a small, oft-deserted piece of sand in the west of the Seychelles’ largest island, Mahé, just along the coast from the sprawling Port Launay National Park. This area is well-known for its beauty, and Port Glaud Beach is no exception. The mixture of rocks, sea, sand, and sun make it a really pleasant place to spend a day, and the nearby facilities enable visitors to spend as long as they like here without getting bored. Arriving at Port Glaud is simple thanks to the proximity of the beach to the coastal road. With parking in the vicinity, as well as bus stops and some small-yet-popular accommodations, the beach is within reach of many people. That said, it is often deserted, allowing you to spend some time alone, enjoying the scenery or snapping some photos to take back home with you. The surrounding area has plenty in the way of facilities, including famous restaurants such as the Deplace restaurant, a few different hotels and accommodations, as well as shops and supermarkets. This beach is also the location of the now-closed Berjaya Beach Resort, which can still be seen next to the beach. While it stands out due to its inactivity, the choice of location for this old resort speaks to the appealing nature of the beach in terms of its beauty and its calm, tranquil atmosphere. While small, this beach manages to pack in a lot of features, including water that is excellent for swimming and snorkelling, restaurants in the vicinity, and easy-access for almost anyone staying on Mahé. The nearby region of Port Launay is also well-worth a look, and the small offshore island of L’Islette that can be seen from Port Glaud and Port Launay South Beach is a really attractive feature of the region. At low tide, it is sometimes even possible to stroll across the seabed to reach this small island!
