Belle Mare Beach
Close to the town of Mahebourg on the southeast coast of Mauritius, Belle Mare Beach comprises a long stretch of pristine white sand backed by a thick canopy of native casuarina trees. Despite the beauty of this scene, Belle Mare Beach remains largely undeveloped and is probably the least established area on the island, providing a more authentic vision of Mauritius.
While there are a descent range of hotels and villas to choose between when it comes to accommodation, there are no restaurants. Places to eat, along with water sports activities, are available on neighbouring beaches instead.
More popular with locals than tourists, its 400-metre length is busiest on weekends and public holidays. It is a good spot when it comes to both swimming and diving, with the coral reef just offshore regularly visited by bull sharks and barracudas as well as a huge range of other species.
Belle Mare Beach has its own car park, and there’s also an 18-hole golf course open to visitors at the resort looking out over the beach.
