Anse Forbans Beach is the jewel of the south of Mahe. Compared to its peer of group of top Seychelles beaches, Anse Forbans stands out as it is not dominated by major hotel developments. It is a half kilometre long and a narrow stretch of soft sand beach with coral stones scattered across it due to the closeness of the reef, which encircles the bay approximately 100 metres offshore. The beach is considered safe for swimming, especially in front of the beach house and on both sides.
Guests of the Forbans Beach House love sunning for hours on one of 12 sun loungers which can be rolled onto the beach. Or pulled into the shade of the coconut trees that line the beach front.
Anse Forbans Beach, especially in front of the Beach House, is quasi a private beach that is deserted during the week. Saturdays and Sundays are busier as Seychellois families come to picnic on the beach.
The Forbans Beach House is privileged to have the ideal position on Anse Forbans Beach. The satellite photo of Anse Forbans shows the Forbans Beach House highlighted in electric blue outline.

Small coral stones are scattered across the beach due to the nearby reef.
