Holiday in Mauritius – Day 8

Holiday in Mauritius – Day 8

Today is day 8 and is the last day of our 4 day car hire for our holiday in Mauritius. We decide between us that it would be nice to have a drive along the coast road and see some of the towns in the North of Mauritius.

Visiting Market on Day 8 of holiday in Mauritius

We take a picnic lunch, provided by the hotel, with us and drive along the coast to Grand Baie. Once here we manage to find a parking place and go and visit the Grand Bazaar. It’s busy and sells a selection of clothes and souvenirs. We spend some time here shopping, and then as it is quite hot, we all opt to visit a bar on the sea front and enjoy a couple of refreshing beers and give ourselves a chance to cool down.

All refreshed we head out further north, through Mon Choisy, Trous aux Piments and on to Balaclava. Here are some lovely hotels here, such as The Oberoi and The Westin. We decide that here is the perfect place for a quick stop for our picnic lunch. We eat and take a leisurely walk along the beach, it is very pretty here and not at all busy. After lunch it is decided that we will head back, making stops at any places we come across, when we see at photo opportunity.


Once we are back in Grand Gaube we leave the car at the hotel and walk in to town, to have a drink in a local bar, that we had spotted earlier in the week. The locals are very friendly people, and we do not feel at all hassled. A few drinks later and it is back to the hotel for our dinner.
