Wide-open beaches with dazzling blue water and a relaxed coastal atmosphere lure visitors to take a trip to Grand Baie.
Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at L'Aventure du Sucre and Marche de Flacq. Blue Penny Museum and Chateau De Labourdonnais are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Explore Grand Baie's surroundings by going to Flic En Flac (Swim with Dolphins & Flic en Flac Beach), Port Louis (St Louis Cathedral, Citadel, & more) and Phare d'Albion (in Albion). And it doesn't end there: head off the coast to Ile aux Cerfs, enjoy the sand and surf at Mont Choisy Beach, contemplate the long history of Maison Eureka, and get engrossed in the history at Jewish Detainees Museum and Saint Martin Jewish Cemetery.
