Wide-open beaches with dazzling blue water and a relaxed coastal atmosphere lure visitors to take a trip to Grand Baie.
Relax by the water at Ile aux Cerfs and Flic en Flac Beach. For shopping fun, head to L'Aventure du Sucre or Marche de Flacq. Change things up with these side-trips from Grand Baie: Sagar Shiv Mandir (in Pointe de Flacq), Blue Penny Museum (in Port Louis) and Siva Soopramaniar Kovile Bel-Air Riviere Seche (in Bel Air). And it doesn't end there: admire the natural beauty at SSR Botanic Garden, enjoy the sand and surf at Mont Choisy Beach, see some colorful creatures with a scuba or snorkeling tour, and contemplate the geological forces at Trou aux Cerfs.

To see more things to do, traveler tips, photos, and more tourist information, read our Grand Baie trip planning website .

A rugged rock crag surrounded by white-sand beaches and an emerald lagoon marks Le Morne, a World Heritage Site.
Step out of the city life by going to Le Morne Brabant and Dolphin & Whale Watching. Crystal Rock and Curious Corner of Chamarel are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Get out of town with these interesting Le Morne side-trips: Alexandra Falls (in Union Park) and Takamaka Boutique Winery (in Vacoas). And it doesn't end there: stop by Rhumerie de Chamarel, contemplate the long history of The Martello Tower Museum, look for all kinds of wild species at Ebony Forest Reserve, and take in the dramatic scenery at Chamarel Waterfall.

For photos, maps, where to stay, and other tourist information, go to the Le Morne trip planner .

You can drive from Grand Baie to Le Morne in 2 hours. In September in Le Morne, expect temperatures between 30°C during the day and 22°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 27th (Fri) early enough to drive back home.
