    Golf at Belle Mare Plage

    The Legend Golf Course is an 18 hole, Par 72 course.

The course has superb fairways and each of the holes has distinctive characteristics. Set in the heart of an indigenous forest, which was originally used to breed deer, much time has been spent on enhancing the natural beauty of the surroundings. The 17th hole (par 3) is set in a stunning location and can prove a test for the nerves, looking across the water and trees to the 18th. Overnight: The Constance Belle Mare Plage Hotel
