Near the hotel

Between Belle Mare and Trou d’Eau Douce

5 janvier 2013

Swathes of white sand beaches as far as the eye can see, luxuriant vegetation, sunny weather, fishing villages and luxury hotels : the surroundings of 4 star hotel Ambre are picture-postcard...

On the east coast of Mauritius, between Belle Mare and Trou d’Eau Douce


Ambre is ideally situated at Palmar, a little village on Mauritius’ east coast, between Belle Mare and Trou d’Eau Douce. The hotel benefits from the numerous advantages offered by this magnificent part of Mauritius. Palmar is known on the island for its beautiful and very long white sand beach as well as for the numerous hotels that flank Mauritius’ east coast. Mauritius’ position in the Tropic of Capricorn means that the weather is more than clement. That said, the trade winds sweep the island’s east coast during the Southern Winter, from the month of May. The trade winds attract windsurfers and kite surfers. Ambre hotel’s prime position in a sheltered bay means that beach lovers and water sports enthusiasts can enjoy themselves year-round !

A stone’s throw from Ambre : Trou d’Eau Douce and other Mauritian villages


Trou d’Eau Douce, one of Mauritius’ most charming fishing villages, is only five minutes from Palmar. Lively Centre de Flacq is 15 minutes’ drive from the hotel. Here you will find a lively town with street markets and typically Mauritian watering holes and restaurants. A visit here is an opportunity to get a flavour of the local culture and to stock up on holiday souvenirs and trinkets. Variety is the spice of life, the Centre de Flacq market is where you will find an amazing choice of Mauritian spices. Foodies won’t resist trying Mauritian street food which is on offer at stands all around the market : dholl puri, gateaux piments, alouda, samossas, fresh coconuts and ti badia…

Belle Mare : eclectic shopping !

Around 1km from 4 star Mauritian hotel Ambre lies Belle Mare, a little village where independent boutiques and traditional shops rub shoulders with luxury goods such as the official Hugo Boss store. The Belle Mare beach is also a place that welcomes tourists and Mauritians alike who come to relax in the shade of the filaos. A few fields away, if you venture away from the beach, you will find abandoned sugar mills with their crumbling chimney stacks and a lime furnace which has since become the ‘place to be’ for local teens.
