Nestled from the trade winds, in a huge aquamarine bay where dozens of sailboats lull, Grand Bay, the flagship city of the North, is a seaside resort with an irresistible charm. Its summer climate all throughout the year, its very low rainfall, the blue of its sea merging with the sky makes this former fishing village a small bustling city night and day and well worth a prolonged visit.
Grand Bay is well known by the food lovers of the island for its excellent restaurants serving fine and varied cuisine, its gourmet pastries and its pleasant cafés. Very popular amongst the night owls, the region is undoubtedly the most festive of the island, offering varied entertainment with casinos, nightclubs, cosy pubs and bars often welcoming live bands and local and international DJs.
Shopaholics will delight in luxury and duty-free boutiques proudly displaying their wares along the sidewalks or in shopping centres such as "Sunset Boulevard" and "Grand-Baie La Croisette".
