The beach has beautiful white sands and is a great place to snorkel from. Even better there are no cigarette ends strewn on the beach as smoking is prohibited in public in Mauritius.
The beach is long and uncrowned. We stayed at the Sunrise Attitude hotel which is located over the road from the beach. There were always sun beds available even in peak season. The hotel also provides free drinks from a drinks trolley on the beach.
The hotel also rakes the beach each day to clear the sea weed and rubbish that can collect. However this is only done directly in front of the hotel. It’s a shame to see plastic waste washed up further down the beach, but the Indian Ocean is a big place.

The beach is very good for snorkelling as there are lots of corals and rocks. These can be sharp and there are plenty of big urchins and we saw stone fish which are really poisonous, so ALWAYS wear beach shoes. Just be careful where you place your feet when you stand up as you don’t want to stand on something nasty.

The coral reef extends about half a mile out to sea, and you can see waves breaking towards its edge. This is a natural barrier and keeps sharks out, so you have no need to worry about these.

If you are snorkelling the water can get a bit murky near the beach if it’s windy but the further you go out the clearer it gets and the better coral you are likely to see.

Due to the reef the water is shallow, no deeper than 6ft mostly. There is not much tidal variation or current so it is very safe for swimming. The corals can be quite near the surface even when some distance out.

There are a few boats that whizz around and there are designated areas for swimming and snorkelling, but you might want to wear an inflatable marker float so that you can be seen more clearly if snorkelling.

The whole beach is a giant aquarium and abundant with sea life, we saw turtles, stone fish, octopus, puffer fish, trigger fish, parrot fish, soldier fish, tube fish to name a few.

Other water sports are available on the beach including, paracending, hobie cat, yachts, windsurfing, underwater walking etc and these seem to be available near the Residence Hotel further south down the beach (turn right when you come out of Sunrise attitude and walk for 15 mins down the beach).

Also, on this beach is a Hindu Temple with a fire walking pit.

You’ll also see a roost of a couple of a few hundred giant fruit bats in the trees next to the beach 5 mins walk down from the sunrise attitude ( come out the hotel entrance and turn right). These can be seen flying along the beach around 6.30pm but just hanging in the fir trees the rest of the day.

Busy on the main beach, but walk down to the east side and it is less so and stunning. Visited here to do the Underwater Sea walking

Had a trip to snorkel with delphins. On our way we saw crystal rock and got the unspoilt beach where we had BBQ.
We spent a fabulous time over there.
If you go there, you will experience home made spirits with local flavours such as coconut. You will try a sea food served straight from canoo boat preparing by local fisher man.

Constance Belle Mare has lovely service.

Notably: Ved at the beach restaurant and Prashinta the hotel guest compliance manager.

Please stay at Constance Belle Mare when visiting Mauritius, as there is the presence of the best beaches in Belle Mare here.

I just love the blue ocean and the white sand of Belle Mare beach! The coral reef in the ocean alongside the coastline makes the water calm and clear.

Such an amazing experience and an idylic location. Everything was just perfect especially the food! If I had one tiny negative in there it would be that the rooms are a little dated. I would highly recommend.
Thank you for making this the perfect holiday experience.

Beautiful beach to visit and have a swim, close to the reef so the current can be strong but we loved it there
