Beau Vallon Beach

Top choice in Mahé

A beautiful semi-circle of sand backed by palms and takamaka trees, Beau Vallon beach is Mahé's most popular. The swimming is excellent, but there can be strong waves from June to November. For day visitors, beach bed rental costs Rs 75/150/225 per one/two/four hours, or Rs 325 per day.
