Grand Anse Beach in the southwestern coast of Mahe Island is a sandy bay. Even though it is not recommended for swimmers due to its strong currents, it is the best place to spend the evenings with your closed walks. It is also the best place for relaxing walks in during the evening time. Also known to be one of the longest shores in the city of Mahe, is a beautiful place to spend your time. Its longest shorelines offer many places to take quality photographs. A delicious restaurant in the beachfront offers many delicious and original Seychelles cuisines for its visitors.
