With the turquoise sea adjacent to the road, this village is a top Mauritius destination. The Dutch called Grand Baie "De Bogt Zonder Eynt," which means "the bay without end." It's a busy place with plenty of water sports, including big-game fishing, windsurfing, under-sea walks, snorkeling, and diving. Cruise ships call to and from the islands nearby, and the area has seen the arrival of a number of luxury resorts. Although the center of Grand Baie is showing signs of overdevelopment, the North region is known for its untouched seaside. White-sand paradises, where you can have a more local Mauritian experience while sipping on a freshly picked coconut, include La Cuvette, Pointe aux Cannoniers, and Cap Malheureux.
