Anse a la Mouche is a beautiful, very flat bay in the southern part of Mahé. Depending on the season and the tides the sandy beach is narrow or extremely wide (up to 100+m), but the water is always shallow. Anse a la Mouche is perhaps not the perfect beach for swimming. You have to walk out very far before the water gets a little deeper. Walking in the water though is only comfortable in a rather small area which is sandy and free of corals or seagrass beds. Anse a la Mouche is not very famous, but still a very picturesque bay and worth a visit. Especially at low tide when the fishing boats lay in the sand, or in the evening to watch beautiful sunsets.
