Grand Gaube Holidays

Filled with authentic Mauritian charm, stunning Grand Gaube is even more relaxing when enjoyed from the beach. We love letting the enchanting beauty of the area, the small rocky bays, crystal clear lagoons, and stretches of white sand beach, intoxicate us on our holiday in Mauritius.

Sip an umbrella-topped cocktail and listen to the beat of traditional Mauritian music over a candlelit dinner on the beach and feel the enticing rhythm of island life loosen your bones.

Destination Highlights

  • Grand Baie

    Framed by white sandy beaches and surrounded by calm, turquoise waters, Iles des Deux Cocos (Coconut Island) is a paradise island. Book a boat trip to the island for an all-inclusive day trip that includes everything you would expect in paradise. Take a glass bottom boat trip, go snorkelling in the crystalline waters of the Blue Bay Maritime Reserve, relax on the beach with an exotic cocktail, or explore rich, native vegetation on the trails that meander further inland.
