And the Beau Vallon Promenade is Ours!

There have been a lot of rumours flying around about it being the last Bazar Labrin at Beau Vallon. This, of course, because the same Russians who bought the Coral Strand, have bought the land along the beach.

According to STB, the government has told the Russians they may not build until the high-water mark on the beach (as they had planned). The Beau Vallon beach promenade belongs to the government and will be left as it is. All activities that are usually held at Beau Vallon, including Bazar Labrin, Regatta and all other activities for the "people" will continue to be held there. The Russians will just have to build further back.

This is great news, not just for us vendors, but also for the Seychellois youth who can go on drinking their Seybrews and blaring hip-hop music from their cars along the promenade. What would we do without our Creole traditions?

  1. During our evening strolls from our appartment to the Meridien I remember an empty Coral Strand hotel restaurant and bar. Looked kind of deserted. At the same time locals were hanging out at the promenade. So, it's good thing the hotel won't expand at the cost of the promenade.

    BTW, I found it to be one of the ugliest hotels on the Beau Vallon beach...
