The north coast of Mauritius was one of the first to attract holiday-makers, drawn by some of the island’s best beaches of soft white sand. For those that prefer the occasional sortie to off-site shops, bars and restaurants, the north has the only real resort town on Mauritius, bustling and cosmopolitan Grand Baie. For divers, this area also offers the widest range of dive sites.
West of Grande Baie is an almost unbroken series of white sandy beaches with Trou aux Biches among them. To the east is a quieter region of secluded coves and smaller hotels.
The wind is generally offshore, so the north coast can feel more protected and comfortable in the windy winter months. But it also means that it is hotter and more humid in summer.
