Belle Mare Travel Guide
Shopping There are small local supermarkets nearby where visitors can buy basics like snacks and bottled water (which tends to be expensive at the hotels), and there are hotel shops selling souvenirs and the like, but there is no real shopping scene at Belle Mare Plage. Everything travellers need should be available, but those wanting holiday shopping sprees may need to travel further afield to get them.
Restaurants Visitors to Belle Mare Plage are spoilt for choice when it comes to dining options. The Constance Belle Mare Plage hotel has seven restaurants, some of which offer elegant fine dining and others simple meals to be enjoyed on the beach. There are a variety of cuisines and budgets to choose from. All different dietary requirements are catered for. It is even possible to take cooking classes at the resort - and Mauritian food is worth learning about!
Nightlife The nightlife at Belle Mare Plage is limited to the variety of restaurants and bars affiliated to hotels and the entertainment offered by them. It is not considered a party resort. However, for those in search of some nighttime fun, Trou d'Eau Douce, a short way up the coast, has some livelier bars.
Activities There are two 18-hole championship golf courses near the beach, and several tennis courts, and other activities include parasailing, deep sea fishing, wind surfing, waterskiing, kite surfing, scuba diving, snorkelling, surfing, yoga, pilates and glass-bottomed boat safaris. There are amazing spa facilities at Constance Belle Mare Plage and the luxury hotel also offers an all-day kid's club to keep children happy and entertained. Those who want a break from the beach can enjoy mountain biking and hiking in the mountains along the east coast of the island.
