Mahebourg / Blue Bay

Things to do - general

Mahebourg

Is the primary (but nethertheless small) city of the Grand Port region situated on the South East Coast of Mauritius with a population of around 17,000. It is centred around a very popular food market and it’s other most notable feature is the well serviced bus station – from which you can reach virtually any major destination on the Island.

The city is probably best described asslightly dilapidated with shoddy buildings interspersed with the odd modern build.

Nether-the-less Mahebourg’s charm somehow invokes a sort of wonderment. Whether you be sampling the street food, moseying through the market,shopping for curiosities, peering seawards from the boulevard or simply watching the wonderful characters pass along something about Mahebourg will surely stay with you forever.

When snorkeling try sprinkling a little coconut in the water, then relax and watch the vast array of colourful fish surround you

Nightlife info

The Mahebourg and Blue Bay area are more appropriate for those who value the day more than the night. Indeed, a beachside apartment or bungalow will offer all you need to fully embrace the company of a loved one or family.

The is very little to do of an evening with only two bars and unless priorly arranged, no taxi service.

Restaurants will allow you to drink until late and will often organise transport to and from their premises. Certainly if you eat there.

There is a bar above the restaurant on the promenade, but beware this usually closes at 10pm.
