Spent some time at one of the beach stalls whilst waiting to do the uinderwater walk at the dive centre here. Beach stalls great but avoid dive centre like the plague ... so unprofessional and worrying practices!

We visited this beach after reading a glowing Tripadvisor review; it didnt disappoint.The water is lovely and clear, sand clean and the highlight had to be the prawn curry with rice and roti with fresh pineapple from Aslam Choysoo.- a little food stand.

I was looking for a more secluded beach in Grand Baie and La Cuvette did not disappoint. Go early before it gets busy and so that you can get a good shady spot for later in the day. The beach is tiny and only 80...More

This was our favorite beach-spot at Mauritius. It's a little beach, beautiful surrounding and very nice snackpoints with local food. If you are looking for a beach close to Grand Baie, pick this one!

I only had a day at this beach. It was really nice for the time spent. There are many shops and food outlets nearby. There was even a Masjid nearby as I was there on a Friday. Overall it was a great day out.

Nice and cosy little beach with basic food services. It is quickly crowded on week-ends and bankholidays.

It’s best just walking or driving by. This I not a place where you would swim or snorkel. There are several restaurants near it where you can sit and enjoy the gorgeous water.

Amazing colors of the beach. Black rocks, sand like gold. A lot of trees - very useful when is raining. And a small bar with local food.
