Sunday: Spent More than 3 hours Bars & Clubs
Since our inception in 1994, we have grown from a small boutique bar to the number one nightlife venue on the island for locals & tourists alike. The incredible Flamboyant tree in the middle of the bar was planted many years ago and has enjoyed its vantage from a mere twig to a towering icon of Grand Bay. Being at the heart of activity in the north, we do not doubt the stories it could tell... Since our ownership in 2003, it was our vision to rejuvenate the music scene and transform our venue into "The Place" in Mauritius for live music. Now, every night music from jazz, blues, rock to fusion is performed. If you wish to just chill out and enjoy the cool island vibes or see top local groups perform, you are in the right place. If you visit the Banana, we sincerely hope that you enjoy your time with us and if you are on holiday, that we can help make it a memorable experience. Dress Code: Smart Casual See more..

- 3.0 Grand Baie Bazaar (668 reviews)
A tourist trap with a few hidden gems
Flea & Street Markets
We visited the Bazar in July and while you get accosted at every single turn by people selling their wares, there are a few gems hidden in here. I was particularly impressed by the mehndi artist we found (young woman who also makes clothes) and then Pamela & Dyllan from Le Secret des Epices (stall 71). We bought a few things from them, and I was pleasantly surprised to find locally made spice combinations for sale, in pretty bags and hanging 'containers' for the same. I prefer buying local and not the standard made in China-keep-in-a-cool-dark-place nonsense you get everywhere, and these two stalls in particular did not disappoint. See more..
