It’s our first visits to Mauritius and I have booked the first week at Grand Baie at Ocean Beach Villas. Please could I have some recommendations for good bars to go to after eating in the evening?Also is it safe to walk back in the dark? Thanks

When are you planning on coming?

Currently no bars are open because of covid regulations, but you can grab a drink in restaurants or hotel bars.

This is your location:

Be careful walking at night as there is little street lighting and very little in the way of pavements/sidewalks.

Petty crime is on the increase in Mauritius so not a good idea carry valuables.

See the UK FCO advice here:

My husband was in Grand Baie a few weeks ago, and in the evenings after he and a friend had eaten they tended to end up at the Banana Beach Club for the live music.

Surprised at that PSS when all bars are supposedly still closed?

Do they serve food?

Heres the official government page saying bars and nightclubs are closed:

Yes it does serve food which is probably why he was able to get a drink, but thought you had to eat there to be able to get a drink.

Yes, they serve food, but he and his friend only went there later in the evenings to listen to the live music. They were served drinks with no questions asked.

Please don’t report them as I’d like them to be open the week after next 🤣. We have booked bnb so that we can eat out so maybe we will eat there though. Couldn’t find a nice place to stay on the beach up that end which was not all inclusive as like eating out (and have got 5 days in Blue Bay at an all inclusive as we are doing a Multicentre 2 weeks) hence asking about the long walk in the dark.
