Anse Source D’Argent

Pack an extra memory card, people – there’s a reason Anse Source D’Argent in the Seychelles is the world’s most photographed beach. Capture boulder-adorned shores, ribbons of shimmering sand and aquamarine water. Visit late afternoon and wait for a shot of the intense hues arriving with sunsets. Explore historic plantations before reaching the water, then wade in up to 1 km before the ocean even reaches your waist. After experiencing the beach’s serenity, memories will outlive the gorgeous photos you’ve taken.
