One of the world's most famous beaches
Anse Source d'Argent is located on the small island of La Digue and is among the most famous beaches in the Seychelles and even the world. I can safely say that it deserves its reputation. It's amazing...it's a huge lagoon with massive granite boulders shining in the sun...I'd never seen anything like it. Like all the beaches in the Seychelles, Source d'Argent is strongly influenced by the tides. When I went at low tide, the water was very low and you could snorkel in the surrounding reefs. By the afternoon, the water had risen considerably and the beach was practically empty. You can rent beach chairs and there are walking vendors who come by and sell fresh fruit.
