Chalets d'Anse Forbans


... is located in the southeast corner of Mahe Island in the Seychelles.

Driving down the east coast of Mahe from the airport, the main road passes through a string of large settlements at the back of sweeping tropical lagoons. All pleasant enough, but it is only once one reaches this most southerly section does it feel like you has really arrived in the kind of laid back undeveloped place that you had hoped for.

The last little bay, Anse Forbans, is the best on this side of the island, largely because it is here that the main coast road turns inland to leave the foreshore untouched.

This simple but efficient facility comprises around a dozen pleasant bungalows, each containing two rooms, arranged in military style, like cricket pavilions on holiday. They have direct access onto a beautiful beach.

Chalets d'Anse Forbans is one of our favourite properties on Mahe, a number of us have used it as a base from which to explore the island.

However we do find the self-catering element to be rather hard work given the lack of shops and restaurants in the vicinity, so much so that we very rarely recommend it for inclusion in trips. If they could just add a small restaurant it would be great.
