Belle Mare Holidays

Stunning beaches, crystalline waters and delicious cuisine are just the start of your holiday in Belle Mare, found on the east coast of Mauritius.

Home to long stretches of pristine sands and cerulean sea, this sleepy village is alive with luxury,5-star resorts and picture perfect spots to catch stunning sunsets with a cocktail in hand. Switch off from the everyday and relax into paradise, or for something more active, we suggest taking a boat to the island of Ile aux Cerfs for a round of golf.

Before hitting the beach and ordering your first drink at the bar, why not spend a few days in glamorous Dubai? Just a short flight away, it’s the perfect stopover destination where you can indulge in some stylish shopping, sightseeing and souq-wandering.
