Seeking one of the longest stretches of white sand beach? Head to Belle Mare
on Mauritius's sheltered east coast, which is perfectly positioned to explore a local Hindu temple, colourful markets, and many underwater wonders off the coast. Just south of Belle Mare is Trou d’Eau Douce
, with its ribbons of powdery white sands and a sparkling lagoon. There’s tempting coral reefs, waterfront eateries, and boat trips to neighbouring Ile aux Cerfs for championship golf. Stay at Shangri-La Le Touessrok Mauritius, with an impressive beach club and dive centre.
