“With distinctive, water-worn boulders towering over white sands, Anse Source D’Argent, helps make the Seychelles in the Indian Ocean, a beach lover’s dream destination.”
Anse Source d’Argent beach, located in the north of La Digue, is a long sandy beach of dazzling white, with huge granite boulders tumbling into the sea, and swaying palm trees. The beach is continuously included on the list of top 10 most beautiful beaches in the world.
Another Seychelles’ beach that is continuously rated alongside the most glamorous beaches in the world is the “Anse Lazio” beach of Praslin Island.
