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 Mont Choisy Beach and La Cuvette Public Beach. Relax by the water at La Cambuse Beach and Ile aux Cerfs. Change things up with these side-trips from Grand Baie: Pointe de Flacq (Hindu Temple & Sagar Shiv Mandir), Ile du Phare (in Mahebourg) and Siva Soopramaniar Kovile Bel-Air Riviere Seche (in Bel Air). The adventure continues: tour the pleasant surroundings at Plage de Trou aux Biches, admire the natural beauty at SSR Botanic Garden, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Ronaq-Ul-Islam Sunnee Mosque.

For photos, where to stay, and other tourist information, refer to the Grand Baie trip tool .

Madrid, Spain to Grand Baie is an approximately 16.5-hour flight. You'll lose 3 hours traveling from Madrid to Grand Baie due to the time zone difference. Traveling from Madrid in June, you will find days in Grand Baie are a bit cooler (30°C), and nights are a bit warmer (23°C). Finish your sightseeing early on the 2nd (Tue) to allow enough time to travel to Rodrigues Island.
