4. Anse Source D’Argent, La Digue Island, Seychelles
Located off the east coast of Madagascar in the middle of the Indian Ocean, the islands of the Seychelles have long been a popular vacation spot for the rich and famous. There are hundreds of gorgeous beaches scattered about this archipelago, but the most beautiful is Anse Source d’Argent on the island of La Digue.
Here, the jungle tumbles into huge granite boulders beyond a snow-white beach and a sea so luminously turquoise, it appears unreal. The beach has good snorkeling offshore as well. There are more impressive beaches that have a more private and exclusive feel around resorts on Desroches, Denis, and Fregate Islands. The best times to visit the Seychelles is in April and May or October and November, when skies are usually sunny and blue.
