Wide-open beaches with dazzling blue water and a relaxed coastal atmosphere lure visitors to take a trip to Grand Baie.
We've included these beaches for you: Mont Choisy Beach and Belle Mare Beach. Step out of the city life by going to Scuba & Snorkeling and Plage de Trou aux Biches. Get out of town with these interesting Grand Baie side-trips: Flic En Flac (Flic en Flac Beach & Swim with Dolphins), Port Louis (St Louis Cathedral & Jummah Mosque) and Phare d'Albion (in Albion). The adventure continues: see the interesting displays at Chateau De Labourdonnais, play a few rounds at Ile Aux Cerfs Golf Club, don't miss a visit to Notre Dame Auxiliatrice, and get great views at Siva Soopramaniar Kovile Bel-Air Riviere Seche.

Tucked away on the wild southern coast of Mauritius, the village of Bel Ombre feels somewhat off the beaten track, yet the five-star resorts and hotels offer as comfortable and luxurious a vacation as anywhere on the island.
Curious Corner of Chamarel and Ile du Phare are good opportunities to explore the local culture. You'll enjoy a bit of beach vacationing at Gris Gris Beach and La Cambuse Beach. Explore Bel Ombre's surroundings by going to Mahebourg (Pointe d'Esny, Mahebourg Naval Museum, & more), Blue Bay (Ile des Deux Cocos & Speed Boats Tours) and Blue Bay Beach (in Pointe d'Esny). There's still lots to do: enjoy the sand and surf at Le Morne Beach, see majestic marine mammals with a dolphin and whale watching tour, explore the striking landscape of Black River Gorges National Park, and explore the striking landscape at Le Morne Brabant.
