Seychelles swim ban lifted six months after shark attacks

A swimming ban, implemented in the Seychelles following two shark attacks last year,
has finally been lifted after six months.

Paradise lost: Anse Lazio beach was often voted one of the best in the world
before the shark attacks


Anse Lazio beach - often voted one of the best in the world - has begun to welcome tourists back into the sea for the first time since a British honeymooner and a French tourist were killed in two separate attacks last August.

Specially-trained life guards have now been introduced to the beach on the popular island of Praslin, following consultation with experts from South Africa.

The freak shark attacks, the first in the Seychelles in nearly 50 years, killed Ian Redmond, 30, who was on honeymoon with his new wife Gemma Houghton, as well as a 36-year-old French diver Nicolas Virolle.

Alain St.Ange, the CEO of the Seychelles Tourism Board, made the trip to Praslin for the reopening of the beach, enjoying a swim with hoteliers from the island.
He told reporters: 'As a country, we worked hard to ensure that recommendations made by South African experts were looked at. We sought more help from Australia in the field of training for our life guards.
'Today, we feel satisfied that we are ready to reopen the beach, which is adequately manned by Seychellois life guards.'
