For many visitors the Anse Lazio the most beautiful beach of the island Praslin. yes, the Anse Lazio is beautiful - but from 10 a.m. at the latest until late afternoon it is so well visited that one rather feels like being at the Playa de Palma than in the Seychelles.
Only a few hundred metres away as the crow flies is the beautiful Anse Georgette. however, there is no road that one could easily take from Anse Lazio. one must either take the (beautiful, but strenuous and not entirely harmless) footpath from Anse Lazio to Anse Georgette, which takes about 60 to 120 minutes, depending on one's fitness. only a few years ago, a tourist on this hike disappeared and never came back, so it is anything but an "easy walk".
The second possibility is the access via the grounds of the beautiful luxury hotel "Constance Lemuria"But here, one has to register several days in advance for the desired date of visit and then one can only hope that there are not too many other tourists registered for the same day. the access is only allowed to a few visitors per day. if one registers too late, one can have bad luck and will not be put on the visitor list.
If you still want to go to Anse Georgette on the date you want, the path described above is reserved for fit adults who dare to go off the beaten track and are rewarded with a phenomenal view just before the end of the walk (see photo)!
Also for especially unusual wedding pictures this is one of my absolute favourite spots in the whole Seychelles! As I have been "on a first name basis" with the hotel director since my first stay there at Constance Lemuria, "my" wedding couples and I fortunately do not have to take the time-consuming walk, but are picked up at the hotel reception in one of the hotel's own vehicles and brought almost to the legendary photo spot. Life can be so easy... 🙂
