Location & area
Lonely Planet Independent Review: "Northern Mauritius offers a huge amount to visitors; while its spectacular beaches have inevitably lead to heavy development it’s never hard to get away from it all and discover areas that remain largely untouched by mass tourism. Grand Baie is the centre of the country’s travel industry (although it’s increasingly finding itself challenged for that status by Flic en Flac) and boasts Mauritius best nightlife, some of its most excellent restaurants and shopping. The small villages around Grand Baie, Trou aux Biches, Mont Choisy and Pereybere are growing at an incredible pace and all have wonderful beaches to enjoy, making them other obvious attractions in the region. The lagoon, sheltered from the prevailing winds, offers a host of water sports and is particularly good for snorkelling and diving.

Amenities & services
GRAND BAIE (BAY) is situated within an area of sheltered bays and beaches where water sports and fishing complement the shops, bars, restaurants situated near the waterside. It is the earliest and traditional centre of tourism in Mauritius. It was once a small fishing village and is now a lively and largest resort - a popular tourist destination situated on a picturesque horseshoe bay in the north of the island. A shopping and leisure paradise and the area where Mauritians head for when they want a fun-filled night out!
The town is also the MAIN DEPARTURE POINT for trips by boat to the Northern Islands of Coin de Mire, Ile Plate and Ilot Gabriel. Local buses run between Port Louis (Capital) and Grand Bay every half hour during the day. Ile Au Cerf, a beautiful island located off the east coast of Mauritius, is also easily reached from Grand Bay.
Inland and nearby is the beautiful Sir Seewoosagur Ramgoolam BOTANICAL GARDNES AT PAMPLEMOUSSES where shaded walkways, streams and ponds border a fine collection of indigenous flora. The garden’s origins go back to 1735 when it was used as a market garden to provide fresh supplies to ships calling at Port Louis. The gardens are one of the most visited attractions in Mauritius. Opened as a private garden by the French governor of Mauritius nearly 300 years ago, they served as a major horticultural research centre for the French and British during the colonial period. Today they are home to dozens of varieties of palm trees, as well as medicinal plants, fish ponds, and an amazing collection of Queen Victoria water lilies.
SHOPPING: A 15minute drive from Grand Bay is Port Louis city where, in and around the central market is a souvenir and bargain-hunter’s dream where you can bargain for saris, spices, sandals, beachwear and intricately woven wall coverings from India as well as buy fresh fruit and vegetables from one of the many stalls for a few rupees.
SPORTS ACTIVITIES: diving, windsurfing, kite-surfing, sailing, paragliding, snorkelling, fishing, yachting;
AS AN ALTERNATIVE to say, Africa, the Algarve, Majorca or Tuscany, Mauritius (Maurice) is now generally regarded as one of the best areas for travel and tourism in the world. The northern coast in particular, offers white, sandy, forested, tropical beaches flanked by beautiful coral lagoons, spectacular volcanic mountain scenery, tropical fauna and flora and an all-year-round sunny climate (annual temperatures varying from about 26 - 30 degrees C.) making this area an ideal choice for your holiday of a lifetime! Mauritius Rocks!!!
JUST IMAGINE CHILLING OUT ON THE BEACH or under the filao trees…or trying water sports, banana boat rides, scuba diving (training and qualifications available), snorkelling, fishing, boating, walking, horse riding, tennis, golf, enjoying the night life and great hospitality…barbeques and sega dancing on the beach, awesome extinct volcanic mountains, sugar cane plantations, colonial history, hot sunny days…the list seems endless and you'll want to come back for more!
Many EXCELLENT, self catering apartments for rent or vacation rentals now offer a great alternative to the more expensive hotel resorts on the island. They offer better value for money than best hotel deals in Mauritius, budget or cheap hotels, beach accommodation rentals or holiday homes in the form of fully furnished apartments or villas at a fraction of the cost. With relatively lower rental rates they have opened the door to more visitors being able to afford to stay and benefit the island’s economy. The bus service is Government-subsidised and a very low-cost way of travelling around but not very comfortable! Or if you are more interested in the history and culture of Mauritius you can explore the island's turbulent colonial past and diversity of people.

Important Notice : Avoiding Fraud
It's rare, but some helpful hints to watch out for with regards to fraud:
- It is important to NEVER wire funds or use/employ other fund transfer mechanisms such as western union: Always use a credit card to protect yourself against fraud. If owners pressure you into providing a deposit or refuse to accept credit cards, there is a high probability that this is a scam.
- If at all suspicious of fraud, ask to see their website, or any other literature they can provide or send to you. Ask them for contact details for guests who have previously stayed on their property insisting on telephone numbers. Be suspicious of emails that originate from free email services (yahoo, hotmail, gmail, etc)
- Research the property thoroughly on the internet to see if there is any history or mention of scams associated with the property.
