What to do and see in Belle Mare, Mauritius: The Best Places and Tips

January 31, 2018 Jasper Kershner

Miles of powder-white beaches hug the coast at Belle Mare, where championship golf courses, posh resorts, a family-friendly water park and abundant aquatic sports ensure activity-filled days. Deep-sea fishing for tuna, marlin and mako shark is especially popular in this eastern Mauritius enclave. Belle Mare also serves as a convenient base camp for a trek to 1,575-foot Lion Mountain, where sweeping views reward those who make the challenging hike to its peak.

Vicky Mauritius Tour

Reviewed By Leonardo F

Vicky is an excellent person, he took us to a tour southwest of the island and exceeded our expectations as we visited more places than we thought so. He is always concerned about their clients comfort and satisfaction. He also did our transfer back to the airport. Fair price, very professional, speaks many languages. We are glad we found Vicky Tour!

Aquaventure

Aquaventure is the first company to have introduced Undersea Walk on the East Coast - Belle Mare in 1995. The valuable experience gained during these years has made Aquaventure one of the safest, most reliable, most customer driven and the most environmental friendly organizations on the island. Being the pioneer in the region, Aquaventure has had the leading advantage of selecting the best and most spectacular underwater spots, combining ideal conditions such as: calm sea, clear water, excellent visibility and a rich and colorful marine life. The Undersea Walk Aquaventure Ltd has since 1995 overwhelmed thousands of people including absolute non-swimmers, people who never thought they would have their head under water and lots and lots of children, amongst others. No former experience or training is required. Undersea Walk for many is a feeling of achievement, another first step, a dream come true, a whole lot of excitement and fun. The guided trip under water lasts around 15 - 20 minutes in the beautiful Long Beach lagoon of Belle Mare at 3 - 4 meters depth.

Aquaventure provides different types of water activities. I did try Sea bed walk, Plenty of fishes around , pristine water and also divers are present around the group to make you feel safe. You can also register for pics under water, which needs to be paid earlier at the shore.

I am a newly qualified OW Diver. I made four dives, including Belle Mare Pass.
Vivek was helpful with all email communications - this gave me confidence that Maritim Crystals is a good Dive Centre.
I dvied with Didier, Amine and Rajeev - all very friendly & professional, helping me as a newly qualified diver.
Amine lead a dive through the Belle Mare Pass - that was amazing, and very enjoyable.
Sadly on my second last dive I dropped my GoPro as I surfaced. Despite another dive we could not find it. The next day Didier was in the same area and he found it !
Thank you Didier - it is much appreciated.
The whole team are very friendly and put you at ease.
They are pretty good at fidning lost objects on the sea bed of the Indian Ocean too !!

Reviewed By jepp0 - Northern England

First poor review I've ever written but my experience was poor. They were professional enough and the gear was to a good standard but their attitude was shocking. Felt like it was all too much trouble. The Canyon dive had very poor vis and 50% of the dive is spent holding on to the bottom. Not what I was told when I phoned to book. They might have been having an off day but I've dived all over the place and this is my worst experience yet.

Discover the magic of east coast of Mauritius on board of the Aqua Sea Co. Ltd. A cruise or sail on our fleet is truely a memorable experience. Admire the Underwater Sea Walk which does not require any knowledge of swimming or diving and you are not even required to remove your glasses or contact lenses. A visit to the stunning island of Ile aux Cerfs with it's most beautiful beach off the east

Reviewed By RK-Kaul - London, United Kingdom

Used them for Under-Sea Walk and ParaGliding. There are many agencies around but we being in a group managed to get a discount on the prices.
Undersea walk in my opinion is good for photo-optics. We were given 15 odd minutes in water, which is fine but there is not much you can do except for clicking nice photos, feed the fish.
My parents both 60+ with typical age related issues and non-swimmers managed to do UnderSeaWalk and Parasailing too - totally doable, just incase you wanted to make up your mind! All the best
