Anse Lazio in the Seychelles is the archetypal tropical beach that sets the standard for all others. Set in Chevalier Bay on the north western tip of Praslin island, Anse Lazio is a broad swathe of soft white sand flanked by granite boulders at each end and a thick fringing of palm and takamaka trees behind. The inviting clear blue water is perfect for swimming and snorkelling. Often cited as one of the best beaches on the planet Anse Lazio is pretty close to many people's idea of paradise. There is, however, a blemish on the beaches record; whilst incredibly rare in the Seychelles there were two fatal shark attacks at Anse Lazio in 2011.
