Tourism is an integral part of life in Grand Bay and it shows through its streets, its trades and shops, its variety of water sports activities (such as: snorkelling and diving, glass-bottomed boats, windsurfing and water skiing) as well as a multitude of luxury hotels. Being a prime destination for holiday-makers, the Grand Bay village has a considerable hosting capacity through the numerous hotels, guest houses, villas and apartments which are offered, from the epitome of luxury (the Royal Palm – one of the jewels of the Mauritian hotels) to the more modest forms of accommodation.
Grand Bay lives at the pace of travellers and would not be complete without its nightlife and nightclubs, among which include the Banana Café, Les Enfants Terribles, Zanzibar, the Buddha Bar and many others. Sega nights are also hosted every weekend, generally on Friday and Saturday nights.
You will find a varied gastronomy in the area, from Chinese, Japanese, Italian, Indian, Creole cuisine, seafood or a fusion of all. Grand Bay is also a shopping village with a host of shops and shopping centres (Sunset Boulevard, the Mauricia Shopping Centre, the Kapukaï or even the Grand Bay Shopping Centre).
The coastal resort of Grand Bay has been the leading resort in Mauritius for many years, to the extent that it is hard to imagine someone visiting Mauritius Island without seeing all that Grand Bay has to offer.
This popular coastal resort is situated in the North of the island at about twenty kilometres from the capital, Port Louis.
