Travel to Grand Baie (Grand Bay) – Biggest Island Beach Resort

Grand Baie is Mauritius’s liveliest resort situated on a picturesque horseshoe bay in the north of the island. It is the island’s main centre for yachting, water skiing, windsurfing and numerous other water sport activities. The town is also the main departure point for trips by boat to the Northern Islands of Coin de Mire, Ile Plate and Ilot Gabriel.

The town was once a small fishing village but has now become the largest resort on the island.

Like many international beach resorts, Grand Baie has numerous shops, restaurants, bars, discos and offers a plentiful choice of accommodation.

The beautiful La Cuvette beach offers diving, glass bottom boat trips and undersea walks. Boat trips to the Northern Islands of Coin de Mire, Ile Plate and Ilot Gabriel are available from here. South of Grand Baie, the northern coastline beyond Tombeau Bay has many delightful beaches including Trou aux Biches with its splendid Hindu Temple. Further up the coast is Mon Choisy, one of the most popular beaches on the island, which offers watersports activities such as windsurfing and water skiing.

Local buses run between Port Louis and Grand Baie every half hour during the day.
