We were a party of...

It is the closest house to the beach in the complex and...

About the neighborhood
Our house is located in the sheltered bay of Palmar , part of the beautiful Belle Mare region. Located on the Eastern coast of the country, the long stretches of white sandy beach with a sheltered turquoise lagoon protected by an offshore coral reef characterise the Belle Mare beach in Mauritius, making ideal for swimming and snorkelling. The house is 50mins from Mauritius' main airport and 40 minutes from Port Louis, the capital of Mauritius. The house and garden adjoins the beach. All manner of water sports are available near the house either by arrangement with the hotels or at the centres dotted along the coast. These including water skiing, hobiecats, laser sails, canoes, snorkelling , kitesurfing and windsurfing. Big game fishing and scuba diving are also available nearby. La... more
