Tucked away on the wild southern coast of Mauritius, the village of Bel Ombre feels somewhat off the beaten track, yet the five-star resorts and hotels offer as comfortable and luxurious a vacation as anywhere on the island.
Your day-by-day itinerary now includes Heritage Golf Club. Get out of town with these interesting Bel Ombre side-trips: Chamarel (Chamarel’s Seven Coloured Earth Geopark & Ebony Forest Reserve) and La Vanille Nature Park (in Riviere des Anguilles). The adventure continues: stroll through Heritage Nature Reserve, examine the collection at Musee du Coquillage, take in the dramatic scenery at Chamarel Waterfall, and explore the striking landscape of Black River Gorges National Park.
