Watersports

Mauritius' east coast has a few notable dive sites, including Belmar Pass, close to where the reef meets the ocean northeast of Belle Mare.

The area's five-star hotels – including Le Saint Géran and Belle Mare Plage – all have reputable scuba outfits. Visit www.msda.mu for a complete list of registered operators.

Golf

The proliferation of top-end sleeps means that there are plenty of places to tee off in the area. In addition to the golf courses further south at Anahita and Le Touessrok, you'll find greens at Belle Mare Plage and Le Saint Géran.

Spas

Most of Mauritius' top-end resorts have a spa, but if you're looking for a unique pampering experience, try the Pedi:Mani:Cure Studio.
