Grand Baie beach and La Cuvette

Grand Baie
Bordering the busy village of Grand Baie, you can best appreciate the beauty in a car-ride before settling down for your favourite spot, under the sun or enjoying the shade of the filaos.

Grand Baie, formerly a major fishing village, is today more than a tourist city centre with its shopping centres namely the Sunset Boulevard and the Super U / Richmond Hill complex, load of restaurants, nightlife and watersports activities. Many locals come to Grand Baie for its nightlife and ... grocery shopping !!!

conference centre in Grand Baie attracts many world conferences and meetings. Just next to it is Royal Palm hotel, the 5-star hotel where numerous stars and chief government officials have stayed.


La Cuvette
Nestled and slightly hidden away from the excited crowd in Grand Baie, this smaller stretch of sand offers a nice place to relax and enjoy the view on the other side of the bay.

Recently this year, La Cuvette public beach experienced an uplifting with a new landscape, toilet and kiosk facilities and a new Chinese restaurant,
Ocean Restaurant. The uplifting was required following protests from the Royal Palm hotel as many locals went to its next-door beach.
