Alright, having grown up in Florida and recently been to the Seychelles, I'm a bit spoiled - but I don't think this beach really deserves the hype. It is lovely, but all the beaches along the coastal walk path are. Well worth visiting, though I...More

To get to trou d'argent you need to walk a good distance through a national park. Once there the scenery is stunning and the waves are worth the walk. No facilities and rather isolated for singles but again worth the visit.

Visited the place on our first day. Snorkeled and the sea is amazingly beautiful. It is a must see place and don’t forget your snorkeling gears as the sea is untouched with a lot of fish and sea life.

Yes, no problem! Just wear good shoes as the rocks can be a bit jagged and sharp.
