Explore Grand Baie's surroundings by going to Flic en Flac Beach (in Flic En Flac), Port Louis (A Pinch of Salt & Jummah Mosque) and Raj Adventures (in Henrietta). Next up on the itinerary: kick back and relax at La Cuvette Public Beach, admire the natural beauty at SSR Botanic Garden, step off the mainland to explore Ile des Deux Cocos, and see some colorful creatures with a scuba or snorkeling tour.
