- north shore of Praslin island
Lonely Planet review for Anse Lazio
The best beach on Praslin - in fact, one of the best in the country - is Anse Lazio, in the far north of the island. It’s picture-postcard everywhere you look. Here, the long, broad pale-sand beach has lapis lazuli waters on one side and a thick fringe of palm and takamaka trees on the other, and it’s framed by a series of granite boulders at each extremity. There's even a terrific restaurant right on the sand.
