About the location
Boasting the pearly white sands and cerulean waters Mauritius is so famous for, the little village of Belle Mare has relaxed beach holidays sorted. Set on the eastern side of the island, the shores are protected by a reef – the corals are perfect for snorkellers, while the sheltered lagoon they create is spot on for swimming and stand-up paddle boarding. A pair of 18-hole championship golf courses stretch over 140 hectares, while nearby Flacq market (the biggest outdoor market in Mauritius) adds a dash of local colour on Wednesdays and Sundays.
