Grand Baie Bazaar

In the heart of Grand Baie there is the Grand Baie Bazaar. The road leading to the bazaar is already bustling with plenty of shops on the right and left side of the road, which sell mostly souvenirs or clothes. At Grand Baie Bazaar there is a real bazaar atmosphere: the vendors try to attract the tourist’s attention with their shouts to lure them into their small shops. There you can find mainly the typical souvenirs and many locally made products. This is also the place to find a variety of cheap clothing and local imitations of world renowned brands. Some of the stalls at the bazaar offer colourful bags, fabrics, handicrafts, beautiful stones, and even silver and gold jewellery. Do not hesitate to bargain at the bazaar, and most likely with some bargaining you can bring down the price quite drastically.

Viewpoint of the Red Church

The Church with its Red roof top made is situated ideally at the very northern point of Mauritius offering breathtaking views of the 5 northern islets of Mauritius. It was here the British landed in 1810. Many visitors now go to the Village of Cap Malheureux only to see and take pictures of the Red roofed Church. Visitors have a lot to see from the beach of Cap Malheureux; you can have the beautiful view of the crystal clear ocean, see the small Islands in the Northern coast of Mauritius and the beautiful beach.

Mont Choisy Beach

Mont Choisy Beach is situated along the northern coast of Mauritius, a few minutes drive from Grand Baie. What makes this beach so special is the gentle way the strand of white sand bends around the coast creating a bay of beautiful, turquoise water, lined with casuarina trees. These trees provide shade and a perfect backdrop for the ocean.

Since this beach is very accessible, it’s a favourite among both tourists and locals and is one of the best places to relax and enjoy quality beach time.

The entrance to Mont Choisy Beach is guarded by a monument which commemorates the very first manned flight between Mauritius and Reunion Island which took place on September 10, 1933.
