Grand Baie ©
Wide-open beaches with dazzling blue water and a relaxed coastal atmosphere lure visitors to take a trip to Grand Baie.
Get in touch with nature at Trou aux Cerfs and Ile aux Cerfs. Phare d'Albion and Ile du Phare will appeal to history buffs. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Grand Baie: Mahebourg Naval Museum (in Mahebourg), Port Louis (Blue Penny Museum, Mauritius Postal Museum, & more) and Spas (in Trou d'eau Douce). There's still lots to do: get engrossed in the history at L'Aventure du Sucre, pick up some local products at Marche de Flacq, browse the exhibits of The Mauritius Glass Gallery, and steep yourself in history at Maison Eureka.
