Belle Mare is the type of place where one could be busy with things all day long or just choose to relax and do nothing.  But, for those who want to try something adventurous, deep sea fishing is one of the area's most popular activities.  The waters surrounding Belle Mare's island of Mauritius are full of all types of fish including yellow fin tuna, striped marlin, sailfish, and mako shark.  Fishing excursions are available from several local companies and private boat owners.  Several fishing records have been set in Belle Mare for white tuna and mako shark.  The best time of year for catching large fish there is November through April.

For those who don't like to fish Belle Mare also offers several other activities such as scuba diving, snorkeling, windsurfing and sailing as well as golf and tennis.  Non-sport activities include dolphin watching trips, and day trips to sites on other parts of Mauritius.  For a listing of things to do on the island, visit Mauritius Tourism website.
