Anse Victorin

Take in the view from atop towering granite cliffs that line the postcard beach of Anse Victorin on the private island of Fregate. One of the most exotic locations in the Seychelles archipelago, Anse Victorin is seemingly untouched by the outside world and very intimate. Surrounded by huge palms sheltering portions of the beach from the nearby resort you can relax in near-solitude on the shore or enjoy snorkeling in clear waters. Visit between November and January and watch baby turtles hatch and shuffle across the sand to the ocean.
