Anse la Raie is a beachfront paradise on the Indian Ocean coast in Mauritius. The peninsula is located in the north, near the town of Grand Baie (Grand Bay). There is nothing here but complete solitude with the beach and the endless turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean stretching out in front. The only noise you hear will be from the ocean breeze and the birds. You can visit nearby attractions and towns like Grand Baie and the Pamplemousses Gardens, or take a drive along the coast. You will have to rent a car in Anse La Raie if you want to move around here.
Grand Baie is probably the most famous seaside resort in Mauritius. Grand Baie is where you go if you want to do some shopping or see the inside of a bar, disco or club in Mauritius. You will have to get a car for rent in Anse La Raie, if you want to continue with the sightseeing. It also has the Pereybere public beach and the beach at Trou aux Biches, Balaclava Ruins and Triolet Shivala, which is a huge Hindu Temple. You might also enjoy a visit to the Labourdonnais Orchards. A bit further ahead are the Pamplemousses Gardens with its 500 plant species, including 80 different types of Palm trees. There is a museum here in the former sugar factory of Beau-Plan.
One of the most interesting tourist experiences here is a trip out on the ocean in a glass-bottom boat. You can go scuba diving and snorkeling. You can do water skiing and get some exercise on pedal boats or kayaks. You can even take a cruise or charter and head out for big game fishing. Goodlands Market is a good place for some local shopping, where you can buy amazing Indian attire like saris and woven fabrics. A visit to the nearby Cap Malheureux is recommended, where you have to visit the Church and enjoy the fabulous view.
