Not all beaches are created equal. Even on the paradise island of Mauritius, some beaches are cooler than everyone else’s beach. Leaving you villa in Bel Ombre and heading toward the beach which is no exception and is one surprising beach!
Nestled in the enchanting village of Bel Ombre found in the southern region of Mauritius, Bel Ombre beach is around 6km of dreamy sand and knock-out views. Maybe because getting there is quite complicated, you often get the place to yourself. Quiet and secluded, it is the perfect spot to escape the hustle and bustle of the island’s city or touristic villages.
Also known as St Martin Beach, Bel ombre beach finds its way among the top 10 longest beaches in Mauritius. Although most of the beachfront area is occupied by hotels, namely, Heritage le Telfair, the Tamassa hotel and the movenpick resort and spa, there is still 1.2km beach to the west that makes up the Bel Ombre public beach.
Since the best of Bel ombre beach is not accessible via the main road, few travelers venture there. Making the isolated coastline, known for its exceptionally clear waters, shallow bays and vibrant sunsets, even more rewarding. It is definitely one of those glorious spots where you can find yourself alone and cloistered from the world, facing a lovely view across the bay.
A bit further to the west, Le Morne, unanimously, won the title of “Most beautiful beach on the island” after visiting almost all popular beaches around the island.
With its landscape worthy of a postcard, Le Morne takes you in an idyllic setting, beyond your most lavish dreams. This beach is unspoiled and wild nature will lead you to unknown lands. Surrounded by beautiful palm trees, you will feel out of time and enjoy happiness with its dazzling crystal clear waters.
The beach of Flic en Flac come just after. The turquoise water of the lagoon has bewitched us! The seabed is beautiful, you will find turtles and manta rays. An incredible journey into the ocean depths!
For third place we went to the east of the island at Belle Mare! We were dazzled by the huge white sandy beaches that stretch to the horizon. Rest and relaxation are the master words of this little paradise of Mauritius.
If you choose to spend holidays in Mauritius, know that you will discover exceptional beaches, among the finest in the world!
