Grand Baie

Wide-open beaches with dazzling blue water and a relaxed coastal atmosphere lure visitors to take a trip to Grand Baie.
Siva Soopramaniar Kovile Bel-Air Riviere Seche and Ronaq-Ul-Islam Sunnee Mosque will appeal to history buffs. Step out of the city life by going to Mont Choisy Beach and Pointe Bernache. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Grand Baie: Scuba & Snorkeling (in Belle Mare), Ile Plate Beach (in Cap Malheureux) and Ile du Phare (in Mahebourg). The adventure continues: examine the collection at Chateau De Labourdonnais, enjoy the sand and surf at Grand Gaube Beach, tour the pleasant surroundings at Plage de Trou aux Biches, and step off the mainland to explore Ile des Deux Cocos.
