Grand Baie in detail

Flights & getting there

There are no direct buses to Grand Baie from the airport, so it's necessary to change in Port Louis and transfer between two bus stations to do so. Almost all people will have a transfer provided by their hotel; for everyone else, we definitely suggest taking a taxi – or, better still, order one in advance via your hotel if your hotel is not one of the big players.

Express buses run directly between Immigration Square bus station in Port Louis and Grand Baie every half-hour. The terminus for express buses to/from Port Louis (Rs 42) is on Royal Rd about 100m north of the intersection of Royal and La Salette Rds. Nonexpress buses en route to Cap Malheureux will also drop you in Grand Baie. Buses between Pamplemousses and Grand Baie leave roughly every hour. Nonexpress services via Trou aux Biches stop every few hundred metres along the coast road.

Expect to pay Rs 2200 to Rs 2300 for a taxi to/from the airport. A return trip to Pamplemousses, including waiting time, should set you back Rs 650 or so.
