the beach of Grand Baie ist not nice for swimming ,
it is a narrow bay with many boats.
Best beaches in the north west are Trou aux Biches,Mont Choisi
( 5-6 km from GBaie )
Péreybère ( 2 km from GB)
Nightlife is in Grand Baie, but you must know,
Ocean Villas is in GB, but arround 2 km from the center,
with restaurants and bars,
in the night you cannot walk there, you must take a taxi.
nice greetings anne
