Anse Boileau is a district that is located in the south of the island of Mahe, in the Seychelles. Anse Boileau exemplifies the natural beauties of the Seychelles: it is situated at the foot of a steep and very green mountain, it is bathed by the waters of the Indian Ocean and contains streams, forests, coves and ponds. It is often described as a "fishing village" because many of the local residents live off this activity. It has a school, a restaurant and some grocery store, a health center and a police station. It is a short distance from Anse la Mouche, popular tourist destination on the island of Mahe.
