Wide-open beaches with dazzling blue water and a relaxed coastal atmosphere lure visitors to take a trip to Grand Baie.
Get a sense of the local culture at Kaylasson Temple and L'Aventure du Sucre. Visit Siva Soopramaniar Kovile Bel-Air Riviere Seche and Ronaq-Ul-Islam Sunnee Mosque for their historical value. Explore Grand Baie's surroundings by going to Port Louis (Blue Penny Museum & Pere Laval's Shrine) and Marche de Flacq (in Centre de Flacq). And it doesn't end there: head off the coast to Ile aux Cerfs, explore the world behind art at Patrick Mavros Atelier, admire the natural beauty at SSR Botanic Garden, and look for gifts at Galerie Francoise Vrot.

Flic En Flac

Flic En Flac ©
An unusual commodity in the lesser-touristed western part of Mauritius, the developed seaside village Flic En Flac boasts a vast white sandy beach that generates a large amount of tourism.
Get in touch with nature at Flic en Flac Beach and Le Morne Brabant. Trou aux Cerfs and Nature Photo Gallery Moka Mauritius are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Change things up with these side-trips from Flic En Flac: Dolphin & Whale Watching (in Le Morne) and Chamarel (Seven Colored Earths, Rhumerie de Chamarel, & more). There's still lots to do: stroll through Black River Gorges National Park, explore the galleries of The Mauritius Glass Gallery, contemplate the long history of The Martello Tower Museum, and enjoy the sea views from Phare d'Albion.
