Anse Source D'argent
Located in the north of La Digue, a long sandy beach of dazzling white with huge granite blocks in a blue azure sea surrounded by swaying palm trees. Anse source D'argent is really a piece of paradise on earth.
Anse Source d'Argent is considered to be one of the most popular beaches of the 115 islands found on Seychelles, with pink sands offset by towering granite boulders that have been worn by time and weather. The ocean here is sheltered by a reef, providing calm and clear sea water that make a perfect playground for all the travelers. Most will find it hard to tear themselves apart from the lovely seclusion of Anse Source d'Argent, but the island is ripe for exploring, with rows of beaches and craggy nooks.
Tour operators take care of the transfer by ferry or helicopter for a day of island hopping a great way to discover the different facets of the neighboring islands. It is not surprising that the Seychelles was once considered the location of the Garden of Eden - you may be tempted to stay at Anse Source d'Argent for good.
A short boat ride from the main island Mahé takes you to the jetty at La Passe. From there bike or take an ox-cart to the entrance of L'Union Estate. A footpath will lead you to Anse Source d'Argent. There's a small entrance fee for non-residents.
Don't expect a minivan or air-conditioned bus to meet and greet guests at the ferry jetty -- ox carts are so common on the island that La Digue Island Lodge sends one to transport guests and their luggage from the ferry. Visitors may rent a bike to get around La Digue, or ride the traditional way -- on an old-fashioned ox cart.
