Your guide to Grand Baie holidays
Grand Baie is the largest resort on Mauritius, a vibrant town overlooking a gorgeous horseshoe-shaped bay. It has several sandy beaches, a huge range of water sports, and lots of places to shop, eat and party. Plus, several fantastic boat excursions, from sunset sailing cruises to snorkelling and scuba diving trips, depart from the harbour. The charming island capital of Port Louis, which has a colourful market, lots of museums and a bustling waterfront shopping and dining area, is only 30 minutes away. Or you could head north to the pretty unspoilt villages of the northern coast, or inland to visit magnificent plantation homes such as the Maison Eureka.
You’ll be spoilt for choice when it comes to beaches in Grand Baie. The main public beach is the main departure point for boat and catamaran tours, and it’s an enjoyable spot to relax at sunset as the boats return. Delightful little Cuvette beach is a sandy gem, which is particularly good for kids thanks to its shallow waters. It has good facilities, including a diving centre and lots of places to eat and drink. Perbeyère beach is another good option if you are travelling with the family, with calm waters and a good range of water sports. The best beach in the area is Trou aux Biches, which is regularly voted one of the most beautiful in the world, and is a magical combination of white sand, turquoise seas and shady palm trees.
