Anse Marron Hiking Adventure Tour
Join me and my team at Sunny Trail Guide for an unforgettable hiking tour!
The tour starts at 7.45 am to take advantage of the optimal morning light for photography and enjoy the tranquil beaches. We will meet at the helicopter landing site, located in front of the entrance of the Union Estate Park. If you are arriving from Praslin or Mahe, I will meet you at the jetty on La Digue. From the meeting point, we will take an open island-style taxi to Grand Anse, where our hike towards the south begins.
The scenic route will take us approximately 2 hours, navigating rocky terrain until we reach Anse Marron. Here, we will spend 2 hours at this stunning beach, featuring natural pools enclosed by magnificent granite rocks, creating a safe bathing spot throughout the year. Snorkeling opportunities will depend on sea conditions. A delicious fruit platter will be provided for lunch.
Following this, we will continue walking for another 2 hours, heading towards Anse Source d’Argent, where the tour concludes on the beach. From there, you have the option to relax on the beach or take a leisurely walk back towards the helicopter landing site. By walking along the beach, you can avoid paying the entrance fee of 150 Rupees for the park (only possible during low tide).
Along the way we can see endemic Seychelles species as the Seychelles Paradise Flycatcher, palm spiders, several species of geckos and plants like Cinnamon, Indian Mulberry and Pandanus and many more.
Please note that we do the tour the opposite direction, when there is high tide in the afternoon.
