Past the airport, towards the salt pans, the Belnem district is located, named after the famous singer-songwriter Harry Belafonte. Together with his partner Maurice Neme, Belafonte once bought a large piece land here, right by the sea. Eventually the district was named Belnem, consisting the first three letters of Belafonte and Neme. Now Belnem is an upscale residential area with several holiday rentals, mostly privately held. Reportedly Harry Belafonte’s famous song “Island in the Sun” was written here.
