Your guide to Grand Gaube holidays
Beautifully set on northern coast of Mauritius, the little fishing village of Grand Gaube is the perfect destination to get away from it all. Most of the hotels have beach clubs on tiny sandy bays, and nearby there are more unspoilt beaches such as Butte à l’Herbe and Anse La Raie. Nearby attractions include the pretty village at Cap Malheureux, elegant 19th-century Château Labourdonnais, where you can go rum-tasting, or the authentic and lively little town of Goodlands, which has fantastic markets. And if you’re looking for shopping and nightlife, you could hit Grand Baie, a lively resort located just a 15-minute drive away, or head to the charming capital, Port Louis, which is 30 minutes away by car.
The beach in Grand Gaube is charming but undeveloped, so you’ll find few facilities for swimming and water sports except those offered by the hotels. However, you can bask in the sun, watch the fisherman at work on their nets, and soak up the authentic village atmosphere. There is a lovely sandy beach at Cap Malheureux, where boat excursions depart for tours of the pretty islets. Butte à l’Herbe is another wild beach, with rocks, patches of sand and walks through the pine forest. The Anse La Raie beach is curved and sandy, and is a great spot for kite-surfing (there’s a kite-surfing centre right on the beach for renting out equipment). There is a huge choice of water sports and a fabulous sandy beach in the big resort of Grand Baie, about 15 minutes away by car.
