Before going to Seychelles we knew that the islands boast some of the most incredible beaches on Earth. Even though, we’ve seen some pretty amazing beaches in Thailand, Bali, Malaysia, and so on, we knew that Seychelles will be hard to beat. Beaches here are just too perfect. Picture a white sand beach, overshadowed by palm and Takamaka trees, the turquoise water dotted with granite boulders and an abundant marine life… You get the picture. 😊 And we’re not the only ones who think that. According to National Geographic Anse Source d’Argent ranks as one of the best beaches in the world! It is seriously the most ridiculously perfect beach and a true photographers paradise. The scenery is really breathtaking, so make sure to spend at least one whole day here.
Anse Source d’Argent – A picture perfect beach
On our second day on La Digue island we decided to see what all the fuss is about. We got up early in the morning and hopped on our bikes. First stop before going to the beach was L’Union Estate (a coconut plantation) which you have to cross in order to get to the beach. This includes paying an admission fee of 115 SCR. After a short and pleasant bike ride we reached our destination. Once you come to the beach you are immediately greeted with huge granite boulders and picture perfect palm trees. The beach has many bays so you make sure to explore them all, as each is different and beautiful. However, the water is shallow and not really suitable for swimming. But, what is amazing is that you share the water with many fish. They are huge and not shy at all so you can even touch them!

So what do you think? Is this the most beautiful beach on Earth or what?
