Grand Baie Beach, Riviere du Rempart

(2.5/5 based on 65+ reviews on the web)
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. Put Grand Baie Beach and other Riviere du Rempart attractions into our Riviere du Rempart tour planner, and watch your holiday take shape.

  • Beautiful beach, sand is perfect and water a lovely temperature. Also close to shops/restaurants in case you fancy a snack. Plenty of shade available and the water isn't rocky, just lovely sand. 
  • Grand Bay is a place of shopping (day) and restaurants but not swimming. No development worthy of the name (light, sidewalk to walk). He must stay in the Mauricia hotel to enjoy sea water.

  • Its a big sandy beach and there are plenty of shops nearby to stock up on bits. I cycled there from Anse le Rae.
