Grand Baie ©
Wide-open beaches with dazzling blue water and a relaxed coastal atmosphere lure visitors to take a trip to Grand Baie.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Ile Plate Beach and Ile aux Aigrettes Nature Reserve. Popular historic sites such as Citadel and Siva Soopramaniar Kovile Bel-Air Riviere Seche are in your itinerary. Venture out of the city with trips to Scuba & Snorkeling (in Belle Mare), Ile des Deux Cocos (in Blue Bay) and St Louis Cathedral (in Port Louis). And it doesn't end there: kick back and relax at La Cuvette Beach, stroll through Grand Gaube Beach, contemplate the long history of Maison Eureka, and appreciate the extensive heritage of Trou aux Cerfs.

A rugged rock crag surrounded by white-sand beaches and an emerald lagoon marks Le Morne, a World Heritage Site.
Discover out-of-the-way places like Blue Bay Beach and Gris Gris Beach. Get some historical perspective at The Martello Tower Museum and Albion Lighthouse. Step out of Le Morne to go to Flic En Flac and see Flic en Flac Beach, which is approximately 44 minutes away. Spend the 10th (Wed) exploring nature at Black River Gorges National Park. There's still lots to do: stroll through Heritage Nature Reserve, don't miss a visit to Le Morne Brabant, enjoy the sand and surf at Tamarin Bay, and browse for treasures at Le Dernier Comptoir.

Take the guesswork out of planning a Le Morne vacation by using our trip itinerary maker.

Drive from Grand Baie to Le Morne in 1.5 hours. October in Le Morne sees daily highs of 32°C and lows of 24°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 10th (Wed) early enough to travel back home.
