Wide-open beaches with dazzling blue water and a relaxed coastal atmosphere lure visitors to take a trip to Grand Baie.
Trou aux Cerfs and Chateau De Labourdonnais are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Step out of the city life by going to Ile aux Cerfs and Mont Choisy Beach. Venture out of the city with trips to Port Louis (Company Garden & Blue Penny Museum), Flic en Flac Beach (in Flic En Flac) and Jewish Detainees Museum and Saint Martin Jewish Cemetery (in Bambous). There's still lots to do: see some colorful creatures with a scuba or snorkeling tour, take in nature's colorful creations at SSR Botanic Garden, enjoy the sand and surf at Pereybere Beach, and take an in-depth tour of L'Aventure du Sucre.
