Anse Lazio is a beach situated in the northwest of Praslin Island, Seychelles, considered by Lonely Planet to be the best beach on Praslin, and one of the best in the archipelago.[1] Located to the north east of Madagascar, east of Zanzibar and south of Socotra, in the middle of the Indian Ocean, it has clear water and pleasing scenery, luring a large portion of Praslin's tourists.

The beach is bordered by large granite boulders. However, unlike other beaches in the Seychelles, Anse Lazio is not protected by a coral reef.

Two deadly shark attacks occurred inside the Anse Lazio bay in August 2011, creating a media frenzy.[2] The last previously known shark attack in the Seychelles was recorded in 1963.[3]
