Grand Baie in Mauritius is situated in its North Eastern coastline and was once a poor village with fishermen and families being the dominant residents in the area. A few years ago Grand Baie had a massive tourism boom and it has now emerged as the Mauritius beach holiday hub of yachting, water skiing, wind surfing and other aquatic sports. A shopping and leisure paradise, Grand Bay also happens to be the area where Mauritians head for when they want a fun-filled night out (restaurants, bars and discos). Recently renovated, La Cuvette beach is well worth a visit.
