Bel Ombre Holidays

This beautiful beach resort is made even more delightful by the sparkling turquoise waters and sun-bleached beach, but what we love about a holiday in Bel Ombre is its stunning natural surroundings. This tropical beach resort is set against a backdrop of lush foliage, dramatic gorges, and stunning waterfalls.

For golfing haven, Heritage Golf Club hosts an 18-hole championship course where the green is situated in front of the stunning waters off Mauritius' coast with a backdrop of fertile mountains. Head for the verdant natural habitat of Frédérica Nature Reserve for a night safari or see the awakening of wildlife at sunset.
