Why locals love it

Although the city's name may be misleading, the bay isn't remotely the prettiest in Mauritius. However, its central location in the Northern touristic city makes it a great place to walk by, enjoy the view and meet fishermen back from their sail. It is also populated by bars and restaurants.

Why you should visit it

It is conveniently located in the North hub, and is worth visiting if you want to buy fresh fish and seafood. The walk will lead you to another beach, La Cuvette, which is more suitable for a swim. Otherwise, you can just take a bunch of pictures and land a Mojito some place nearby.

Special tip

If you're looking for seafood, try around 1pm, that's usually when the fishermen get back.

I'd like to say that this is where i feel connected to the island , it is my favorite corner around Mauritius. Being Mauritian , i feel like the vibe of Grand Baie itself is quite like Camps Bay with Turquoise Water and People Fishing around 🏖☀️
