Anse Barbarons is a beautiful bay with golden sands surrounded by coconut palms and Takamaka trees, reknowned for its excellent snorkelling within steps of the beach. Backed by Mount Barbarons and with views of Ile Aux Bachez it is a very scenic spot, but the water can be too rough for swimming from June-October. The Avani Seychelles Barbarons opens onto the beach, but aside from this resort there is little else here, creating a very peaceful and natural scene. If you're staying at the Avani the nearest shop is a 10-15 minute walk north towards Grand Anse.
