Grand Baie Beach, Riviere du Rempart

(80+ 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.

  • We were two weeks in this area and found that this beach is really very very nice. Very good without shoes in the water. We were in the MERVILLE hotel on this beach. Pure class. A beautiful tranquil Bay. I would again at any time.

  • Beautiful beach with great views of the boats sailing in and out. Lots of shops and places to eat around. Although the water is amazing, it wasn't as clear, due to the boat moving around. Really clear...  more »
