A great beach with plenty of sand, clean water , swimming platforms, safe, sheltered and some snorkeling options. Close to the kite surfers for added excitement

Near the hotel And taxi to the islands. Some stingers in the water but very clean. Good for a quick dip in the morning and possible learning to windsurf. Would I go back possibly.

With grass up to the sand and lots of trees for shade this is a great beach. Rather than a single spot it streatches around the bay and is a popular family swimming spot. It is also good to sit and watch the wind surfers....More

Our visit was during a cyclone so the beach wasn’t attractive at all. Great patisseries selling fresh bread and pastries. Not that many interesting shops tho, just touristy junky shops.

Anse Vata is a beautiful spot to sit and the water is pristine to swim in. It gets the wind in the afternoon, so really good for windsurfing but a little too strong most days to be enjoyable to sit in (depending on the wind...More
