Grand Baie - the North Coast

Once a sleepy little fishing village, Grand Baie (Grand Bay) has developed into a thriving tourist town on the north coast of the island of Mauritius. This popular resort serves as a convenient base for travellers exploring the rest of the island with an array of luxury hotels on offer as well as a number of designer boutiques, fine restaurants, beach bars and nightclubs.

Aside from relaxing on the exquisite white-sand beaches that fringe the crescent-shaped bay, visitors can enjoy a variety of outdoor activities including swimming, scuba diving, sailing, water-skiing, deep sea fishing, windsurfing, kitesurfing, parasailing and even submarine excursions to discover the spectacular range of marine animals that inhabit the crystal-clear waters surrounding the bay.
