Location of Anse Boileau District on Mahé Island, Seychelles
Anse Boileau is a quiet district on the south of the island of Mahé, in the Seychelles. Anse Boileau encapsulates the natural wonders of the Seychelles: it sits at the foot of a steep, very green mountain, it is on the shores of the Indian Ocean, and in its midst are streams, mini-forests, creeks, ponds, and an enchanting array of all that defines the Seychellois landscape. It is often described as a 'fishing village' because many of the local residents fish for a living; it has a school, a restaurant, a number of grocery shops, a health centre and a police station. It is a short distance away from Anse La Mouche, a popular tourist destination. Anse Boileau is so-called because of its many coves.
