In the southernmost part of Mauritius is a paradisiacal place whose beauty perfectly reveals the attractions of that which has long been known as the "Island of France".
An ambassador of Mauritian charm, Bel Ombre is the eternal image of Mauritius: its white sandy beaches punctuated by delicate volcanic rocks, its lagoons with their opal-colored waters and its lush vegetation. Such is this earthly paradise, the jewel of the Indian Ocean, framed by Reunion Island and that of Rodrigues.
Much more than a holiday resort, Bel Ombre promises the traveler seeking something completely different a voluptuous and elegant retreat, once you've settled into one of its newly built establishments. By keeping itself well away from the island's major tourist routes, Bel Ombre acts as a real haven of peace for those who love well-preserved nature reserves or just lazing about, an 'activity' that's almost a religion here.
It is this surrounding countryside that does Bel Ombre so proud. If you head out to the Frédérica Nature Reserve, you'll be able to fully appreciate the island's wild charms. You can have a go at archery here, after your hike beneath a lush canopy. In front of your eyes a light breeze makes the tall grass of the plains dance where you'll sometimes catch a glimpse of a family of deer. Other wild splendors await the traveler under these clear and sunny skies, especially if you decide on a round of golf.
At the Heritage Golf Club, you'll find an 18-hole course that's great for all levels and particularly varied. Gracefully blending into its surrounding countryside, this golf course offers breathtaking views over the island.
