Grand Baie is great for a lot of sports adventures. If you want to go sailing, the west coast allows you to see dolphins for yourself rather than as part of a tour. It also has a fish market that offers an exceptional seafood treat.

Mauritius is an ideal all-year-round destination. It lies just above the tropic of Capricorn, which means it gets a lot of sunshine all year long. It offers up temperatures between 17 and 30+ degrees  The driest (and coolest) time to visit is from May to December. The wettest months are January to March. Although Mauritius is a year-round destination, winter (April to October) is considered the low season. So, if you’re looking for slightly lower hotel prices, this is the best time for you.
