Places in Mauritius
Mauritius' tourism panache started in the north, and today there's plenty on offer for visitors. Although most of the area's spectacular beaches have been claimed by hotel construction, it's never hard to get away from it all and discover the little nooks that remain largely untouched by development.
In the 17th century the Dutch used to call Grand Baie 'De Bogt Zonder Eynt', which meant the 'Bay Without End'. Today it appears as though it's the development – not the bay – that's without end. As such, Grand Baie has all the vices and virtues of beach resorts the world over.
