There’s a fantastic range of things to see and do around holiday accommodation in Grand Baie. The sea here is exceptionally clean and clear, and offers the perfect setting for a range of water sports. You could go swimming, water-skiing, windsurfing or sailing close by. The resort is also the base for a number of companies offering excursions – you could head off on a fishing trip, make for one of the islands just off the north coast, or even board a helicopter for a truly unforgettable tour of Mauritius from the air.
Grand Baie self-catering accommodation would also suit younger holidaymakers who are on the hunt for vibrant nightlife, with a number of lively and stylish nightclubs and bars. Meanwhile many visitors to Grand Baie take day trips by road to find secluded beaches along the coast not far from the town. For instance, at Mon Choisy, just minutes from Grand Baie, there’s a breathtaking sandy bay, lapped by clear emerald waters and backed up by forest.
The city of Port Louis, capital of the island, is just 20 kilometres from self-catering holiday villas in Grand Baie.

Key sights include St Louis Cathedral, the Jummah Mosque and China Town, which boasts a great choice of Chinese shops and eateries.
Perhaps the most spectacular beach on Mauritius sits on the south coast of the island, around an hour by car from Grand Baie holiday accommodation – Blue Bay is considered the top spot for snorkelling and swimming. There’s a marine park here known for its tremendous variety of coral species.
Visiting holiday rentals in Grand Baie you can expect a tropical climate. This makes for warm weather for all of the year - the coolest months are between June and September, and there’s also a lot less rainfall at this time of the year than between December and March.
