Some of our favourite activities to enjoy in Grand Baie Mauritius include the following:
Head out to discover the nightlife
Grand Baie has a vibrant nightlife that caters to locals and visitors of all ages and nationalities. This village is home to a number of bars and restaurants, along with a few clubs. Much like Thailand’s Phuket, Grand Baie has become synonymous with relaxed beach-bar style nightlife, with many of the village’s hangouts to be found within walking distance to the main beach.
Learn to scuba dive
Scuba diving and snorkelling are both excellent in this part of Mauritius, with a number of dive centres to be found. A resort course is a great way to learn the basics if you want to do a single dive. If you want to dive more often during your holiday, a PADI Open Water course is recommended. Your resort will help you organise a course, or otherwise, you can find a local dive centre to get started.
Walk on the ocean floor
You don’t need a scuba qualification to enjoy the underwater wonders found here. Undersea Walk offers visitors the chance to enjoy walking beneath the water in a special solar suit. These walks are a fun way to see marine life without the need for scuba or snorkels. If you are not a strong swimmer but still want to take in sights of turtles, fish and other wonders, this is sure to be a rewarding adventure.
Take a cruise on the Indian Ocean
There is plenty of fun to be had on top of the water, as well. Try a boat cruise at sunset for a romantic experience with your love, or a fishing charter, a nature cruise or any other type of boat cruise that meets your needs. There are many operators to be found nearby. Your resort can also assist in booking boat cruises and other activities.
Enjoy some retail therapy
Grand Baie offers some great shopping, too. If you’re keen to take home a little magic from your Mauritius holiday, a local trinket or two is highly advised. Look out for markets that sell a wide range of items, including unique gifts and local curios. There are also a few other retail outlets within the village. Prices are fair to excellent, especially for South African visitors.
Whether travelling with friends, family or your love, Grand Baie Mauritius is sure to be the perfect choice for your Mauritius holiday.
