Grand Bay

God created Mauritius first and then copied Paradise after it. Discover Grand Bay.


Grand Bay is an area which has experienced a tourism boom. It is a shopping and leisure paradise; Grand Bay is a place where Mauritians go when they want a fun-filled night out (restaurants, bars and discos). La Cuvette beach is well worth a visit.

The wonderful Pereybere public beach is popular because of its shopping facilities, restaurants and pubs.

A few metres away from Baie aux Tortues, which 17th century sailors named after the many tortoises in the area, can be found the ruins of the old Balaclava estate. Visitors will be able to see the sea walls, whose initial foundations were laid down by Mahé de Labourdonnais.



The longest village on the island, Triolet offers an opportunity to visit the biggest Hindu temple, the Maheswarnath, first built in 1819 in honour of the Gods Shiva, Krishna, Vishnu, Muruga, Brahma and Ganesha.
