The famous Intendance beach in southern Mahé offers half a mile of powder white sand and huge breakers. There is no reef so the waves are much larger than most of the other beaches around the island, making it more suitable for surfing rather than swimming at most times.
During the south-east trade winds the waves can reach fearsome heights, but in the north-west trade wind season the sea is calmer. This beautiful beach is also a popular spot for sunbathing.
Located approximately 15km from the airport. From the airport, turn left and travel south on the main road passing Anse Royale petrol station. Continue on this road until you reach the Quatre Bornes police station on your right. From here take the left turn onto Intendance Road and drive for about 1km until you reach another junction. Take the sign-posted road on your right passing Banyan Tree Resort also on your right and you will find the beach at the end of the road.
