Petite Anse, also called Anse La Liberté on Mahé is one of the beaches that are the property of a big luxury hotel group. It is the home of the Four Seasons Resort Seychelles. Luckily visitors are allowed to access the beach. You are welcome to register at the hotel entrance, leaving your car at the parking ground, and can walk down the road to the beach. This beach is one of the most amazing on the Seychelles and while the Four Seasons Resort is really built beautifully into the surrounding hills, it must have been even more beautiful and perhaps one of the most beautiful beaches in the world before the hotel was built. The hotel staff btw. is really friendly and may even ask you if you need a ride in their golf cart when you walk back up the hill after your visit.
Swimming on Petite Anse is great and there is even some shade. If you have booked the four seasons hotel there are enough sunchairs under palm thatched umbrellas that don´t even disturb the look of the beach.
