Grand Gaube Beach
Grand Gaube Beach is located in the village of Grand Gaube, in the northeast part of Mauritius. This is one of the many beaches of Mauritius situated in the Rivière du Rempart district.
Not to be confused with Grand Baie, Grand Gaube is not only opposite to Grand Baie in location, but also in pretty much everything else.
Composed of a somewhat rocky seafloor and a few limited patches of sand, Grand Gaube is a rather deserted beach, except for the weekends when local families can be seen spending the days here.
Money has recently been poured in to make the area around the coast line attractive, with a playground for the children, newly built restrooms and plenty of benches for those quiet afternoons.
Despite these efforts, and the few hotel accommodations to the east (where you will also find the better parts of the beach), the village itself and Grand Gaube beach has little going for it – from a tourists perspective, that is.
Except for local snack food stands, restaurants are few and far between, with most bars and restaurants located within hotel grounds.
Nevertheless, Grand Gaube is peaceful and quiet, and a breath of fresh air when compared to the hustle and bustle of the northwest.
Although on a slow rise, the development of tourist infrastructure in Grand Gaube is still in its infancy when comparing to neighbouring Pereybere and Grand Baie. Public beaches around Grand Gaube, such as Butte á l’Herbe beach, Anse La Raie beach and the northeast coast of Grand Gaube are still largely untouched.
