With all the beauty of Seychelles, naturists would not want to be left out in enjoying the sunny beaches and breath-taking sceneries. Unfortunately, you can only go clothing-free in a secluded and private setting to avoid rubbing the authorities the wrong way. Here is all you need to know about naturism in Seychelles.

Legal status of naturism

Nudism is illegal in Seychelles. It is not a suggested destination for naturists and nudists. It is inappropriate to wear a bikini when riding a public bus or when walking around the village.

What are the available options for naturists in Seychelles?

Even though there are no official naturist beaches, and nudism is not tolerated, you will still find solitary beaches for sunbathing or any other nude activity. There are some popular joints for naturism in Seychelles, and so you can spot a number of them.

1. Anse Lazio, on Praslin Island, Seychelles.
This one-kilometre beach is covered in big granite boulders on either end. The white sand is hard and compact. The most appropriate time for nudism is during clear skies and calm seas when the moonlight is clear or on a full moon. There are no buildings on this island except for one restaurant that is allowed to operate during the day.

Getting to Anse Lazio is not easy. From Mahe, you can take a small 14-seater plane to Praslin. From here you can get a car to complete the 5-kilometer distance to the Anse Lazio or just walk. The sunset view reminds is the real paradise lost for naturism.

2. Moyenne Island in Ste Anne Marine National Park
This is a newly found haven for naturists. It is not official.

PS: since the crowds go home early for dinner, you can have the famous beaches to yourself past 5 pm.

    I am from Seychelles. I think your article is wrong. Firstly there is not such place called Ikaria in Seychelles.
    And as for nudism, topless is ok everywhere. Nudism is frowned upon but nothing much will happen to you. Most locals will just smile and move on. The authorities might of course tell you to put your clothes back on. Best place to go nude are on more secluded beaches or on the outer islands. The Intendance Beach on the North Coast of the main island is an unofficial nude beach.

      Thanks for your comment – I will fix the information about Ikaria. The article was not written by me and I haven’t checked if the information was true.

      Thanks for the extra information 🙂

    Intendance beach ? Mahe. North coast ?? …thought that beach, south west coast next to Banyan Tree Resort.

    Is there another Intendance beach ? Cannot find it on any maps …
    Would be interested to know of any other naturist/nudist beaches around the Seychelles ( NOT Swingers/ fun seekers). Just like being without clothes in beautiful warm parts of the world, without offending any one else.

    Intendance Beach is definitely South-West and too much people to go naked. Best places to go full naked are Police Bay in the South of Mahe, or even more secluded the small beach east of Police Bay. Some walking needed, but you have chances to be alone. Anse Capucin is another good spot if you’re ready to work 45-60 minutes in the jungle, also the waves make the beach somehow dangerous. Finally, Anse du Riz, North of Bay Ternay, with a boat as reaching it by foot is almost impossible.

    1. MarcNude

      Edit to my previous answer – Anse Bazarca is another great spot, particularly at the far side where you can actually bath (no corals). Police Bay does not seem to be reachable anymore as the road is gated. Petite Police still accessible though, but Bazarca definitely better.

    Coming from Seychelles and knowing the place very well. I can confirm that Seychelles is perfect for nudism as beaches are generally deserted and perfect little coves for getting bare with nature and skinny dipping.
    Here’s a few spots
    1. Far right end of beau- vallon bay beach towards glacis area where it gets rockier. Between the beautiful boulders you can get naked (or even kinky). Admittedly Beau vallon is generally busier than most beaches especially weekends. Although early morning is perfect and even moonlit nights.
    2. Glacis intimate secluded coves. Driving through Glacis district you will spot a few beach coves that are perfect for nudism. One of my favourites is a little cove down a footpath offf the main road, by a estate indicated as “Tusculum”, opposite Niran shop about 5 minutes from Sunset beach hotel. Mornings are guaranteed empty. Don’t mind the beach house as it is usually vacant but the tenants tend not to mind nudism( once i went naked and the a tenant waved Hi and smiled). If such bothers you,go toward the rockier part and further out of sight. However,past this gem of a beach are other rocky seaside spot perfect for tanning you rosey bum chicks.

    3. North east point beach and carana. Again between these two main popular beaches there’s a beach down a road past the basketball courts. You may need to walk there

    4. Lilette beach( Ephelia resort) and port launay.
    This massive hotel resorts boasts and enjoys the splendour of 2 main beaches and little coves around the headland it owns. Casually head for a short walk at the far right end of the lilette beach ( the beach that overlooks a small island called Lilette. If you enter through the resort, it is through the main entrance where Corosol restaurant is. So up a trail past the helipad is a gem beach of a sandy stretch which is always guarranteed nudism and pretty much empty bar the like-minded nudist. Continue to the end of the beach is another perfect spot. The fist beach is ideal swimming but the second is choppier seas but ideal for sun bathing and more sexier things….

    4. Petite anse, source d’arge t coves and anse patate, La digue. All these beaches on La Digue island is good spots for going nude. Just judge the crowd and maybe go to a far corner and get comfortable.

    5. Any island you hop to is also perfect to get everything loose and free. Generally people don’t care if you are naked as long as it is contained to the beaches, away from children and elderly population. Be considerate. If you are gay or straight cruising, take the action to the bushes or more secluded parts of the beach. Nothing nicer than rounding off a holiday trip with some kinky fun whether with a stranger or familiar person on a seychelles beach.

    If you fancy foresty or jungle nudism, seychelles equally has plenty of hiking trails which are just as secluded. Seychelles has a very small population thereby why it is so easy and fun to get naked, cruise and cottage.
