Grand Baie Beach, Riviere du Rempart

3.4
#6 of 7 in Things to do in Riviere du Rempart
With the town's main street as its backdrop and a bay full of docked fishing boats, Grand Baie Beach makes for a scenic stroll. Along the way, you'll take in some classic elements of Mauritian culture: the food vendors, the fruit stands, and the locals playing cards and games of dominoes. At the end of the beach, near the fish market, check out the arrival of the day's catch. This well-maintained area has plenty of benches, or you can grab yourself a spot on the warm sand for a touch of sunbathing. The beach does feature a limited swimming area, but it's not the main attraction, as the moored boats dominate the water.

  • Port atmosphere, we appreciate too much swimming. There are worse but there are much better, Mont choisy, Trou aux biches, Pereybere. Avoid for this swim.

  • The sea is not that great as there is the port. On the other hand there are many stores where you can shop. There are also several moneychangers and restaurants, travel agencies for tours and bar.

  • It is next to a busy road, full with boats and quite a short beach. It is not nice for relaxing on a beach nor swimming. You can walk and look at the boats, but for a beach day, go somewhere else.  more »

Where to stay in Riviere du Rempart

Most accommodations in Riviere du Rempart fall in the mid-range to upscale price range. If you want a room with a sea view or wish to stay right on the beach, expect steep prices throughout the year. Five-star hotels and resorts take up most of the beachfront and provide equipment like sun loungers and umbrellas. For lower rates, head inland or ask about rooms facing away from the water.
