Beau Vallon Beach, Seychelles
One of the finest beaches I have ever visited, is Beau Vallon Beach in The Seychelles. It's a very small and beautiful island, almost right on the equator, in the middle of the Indian Ocean. Africa and India are the two closest continents. These islands however, are very isolated.
This the biggest and most popular beach in the area. As a result, it's also the most crowded beach, and usually is year round.
We stayed at the Berjaya resort, which was located directly on the beach. It was a very quiet place, not close to any traffic or roads.
There were lots and lots of water sports to choose from. We tried paragliding, swimming, snorkeling, sailing, hobie cats, and canoeing. You could also surf or water ski too.
We liked the Berjaya's restaurant, as there was lots of choice on the menu. If you like Indian food, try Coral Strand. There were stands where you could purchase wonderful fresh tropical fruit for another treats.
The highlight of this beach vacation, was a visit to a marine park by glass bottom boat. There are several marine parks in The Seychelles, which protect and preserve the marine life, plant life and creatures in the parks. They are very very strict about the rules in the parks, and the fines for abuse are very heavy.
I am unsure of the name of the marine park we visited, but the sights here were amazing! Brightly colored fish, live coral, plant life and creatures.... dazzling! This is the sort of experience that would be difficult to appreciate unless you actually witnessed the gorgeous sights!
Overall, it was a fantastic week on this great beach and should I get a chance, I am ready to visit Beau Vallon Beach anytime.
