Wide-open beaches with dazzling blue water and a relaxed coastal atmosphere lure visitors to take a trip to Grand Baie.
Popular historic sites such as Trou aux Cerfs and St Louis Cathedral are in your itinerary. Do some cultural sightseeing at Blue Penny Museum and Chateau De Labourdonnais. Get out of town with these interesting Grand Baie side-trips: Port Louis (Central Market & Citadel) and Moka (Martin Beffert Jewellery Design & Bagatelle Mall of Mauritius). There's still lots to do: step off the mainland to explore Ile aux Cerfs, stroll through Grand Gaube Beach, admire the natural beauty at SSR Botanic Garden, and kick back and relax at Mont Choisy Beach.

For where to stay, reviews, traveler tips, and tourist information, go to the Grand Baie trip planner .

Cape Town, South Africa to Grand Baie is an approximately 9-hour combination of flight and car. The time zone difference moving from South Africa Standard Time (SAST) to Mauritius Time (MUT) is 2 hours. Plan for a bit warmer temperatures traveling from Cape Town in March, with highs in Grand Baie at 34°C and lows at 28°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 24th (Sat) to allow enough time to drive to Le Morne.
