Highlights:

The local fisherman activity is the true highlight of this beach. It is one of relatively few places on the island where you can get a true glimpse of local life, away from the tourist crowds (besides yourself, of course!).

Facts:

  • 950m x 20m - few tourist visitors
  • Shallow water, although gets deeper at high tide
  • Seaweed is usually washed away quickly
  • Fishing beach on Praslin
  • Good for swimming, snorkelling, and fishing

At a Glance:

  • A fishing beach, where local Seychelles fishermen often leave their boats or try to catch some fish.
  • Safe for children thanks to the shallow water, although children should be careful the further out they get, as the water quickly gets deeper away from sandy areas.
  • Access via walking, car, or bus. There is parking and there are bus stops along the adjacent road.
  • Some small shops and a few fruit bars, as well as some restaurants, can all be found nearby.
  • Natural shade provides protection from the sun.

Description:

Anse Boudin is an interesting beach in the north-east of Praslin, looking out over the ocean to Curieuse Island. With a good mix of facilities, local activity, and beautiful scenery, it’s well-worth a visit for anyone on Praslin. The water here is extremely shallow, especially at low tide, although it does deepen quickly away from the sandy areas of the beach. As with some beaches on Praslin, there can be a slight problem with seaweed, but thankfully, the waves usually wash this away before it settles. Getting to the beach is simple thanks to the nearby road, which has space for parking, as well as bus stops for those who don’t wish to rent a car. Naturally, visitors can also come on-foot, especially if their accommodation isn’t too far away. Perhaps the most striking thing about Anse Boudin once you arrive is the local activity here. Fishermen often leave their boats anchored in the shallow water here, so you can normally spot a few small boats in the bay. As well as that, on Saturdays, the locals sometimes play football on the beach, which is worth seeing if you like sports. The shallow water of the beach lends itself well to snorkelling and swimming, and the water is even safe for children to swim and play in. The nearby snack shops and curio shops mean that there are enough facilities for an extended stay at the beach, and the restaurants in the vicinity ensure that visitors can enjoy dinner in the area if they so wish. For those wanting to take a trip further afield, there is also an excursion counter, offering trips to Curieuse or Cousin island, both of which offer beautiful, untouched natural beauty. The wide range of activities, shallow water, crystal-clear ocean, and facilities make Anse Boudin an excellent all-round beach, especially good for families. If you choose to stay on Praslin, we’d highly recommend a trip to Anse Boudin, at least in order to see the local fishermen at work.
