Anse Marron, Seychelles Overview

Anse Marron is a unique beach in the southern part of La Digue Island in Seychelles. Situated remotely on the south-west coast of La Digue, this natural pool is surrounded by granite boulders, white sand and dense vegetation. The Anse Marron beach is far-flung from settlements, on the southernmost point of the island, which is part of its raw appeal. Known as one of the hardest accessible beaches, it requires a relatively moderate to challenging hike through the dense tropical jungle to reach.

How To Reach Anse Marron

Whether you plan to hike from Grand Anse on the east coast or Anse Source D'Argent on the west coast, it is advisable to hire a guide as the route is quite confusing and precarious - involving tackling the tropical vegetation, heat of the day and obviously, a mismatched sense of navigation is not a good sign. The journey takes you over thickly forested areas, inland trails, majestic cliff views and huge boulders. Therefore, you can either contact your hotel or try approaching agents on the mainland to put you in touch with a suitable guide for your adventure. The fact that Anse Marron can be reached only by foot adds to its serene glamour.

Things to Do at Anse Marron

Anse Marron Seychelles

Since it's a secluded beach, there isn't much you can do here apart from sunbathing, hiking and photography. 
  • The granite boulders act as natural barriers and hold off the water, forming natural shallow pools. The protected saltwater pools are a trademark of Anse Marron.
  • The waters of the beach have a steep gradient due to the lack of coral reefs, making it unsafe to venture too far off. Nevertheless, it is a brilliant idea to soak in the shallow pools of water scattered around the beach area as the giant rocks safeguard visitors from the dangers of the open sea.
  • The spectacular environment of Anse Marron is one of its kind. You can spend your time clicking pictures at some of the most picturesque beachscapes you will ever encounter. 


  • Prepare yourself for the hike to Anse Marron with at least couple of drinking water bottles to keep yourself hydrated. The temperatures can soar quickly, and the humidity tends to make you sweat a lot.
  • Do not venture too deep out in the open water as the currents can rapidly change pace and the water is usually deep.
  • Do not forget to bring the best photography device in your arsenal.
  • It is advisable not to bring children/kids with you as the hike is challenging and strenuous.
  • Carry a walking stick to navigate through the dense vegetation.
  • Make sure you have enough time to reach back to your point of origin, before sunset.
