Hi, we are going to Mauritius in July and staying in Lux Grand Baie for a few days. Will be me, husband and 9 year old. I'm hoping that we can easily explore some of the local area around Grand Baie whilst staying at the Lux resort, especially since I've decided to only book B&B at Lux to allow us the flexibility of either staying at the resort for dinner or exploring the restaurants/cafes in the local area. Would love some tips.

I would book HB as othewise you will need to get a taxi into Grand Baie or Pereybere or wherever you decide to eat out every evening otherwise unless you have a hire car.

There are regular buses in the day but they stop running early evening.

You can walk but the road is unlit and no sidewalks so you have to put up with oncoming traffic. Plus not a good idea to walk in the dark in Mauritius as petty crime is on the increase.

Its at least a 15 min walk into Grand Baie:

Thanks - that is helpful. We can still eat in the resort (will just have to pay as we eat rather than paying in advice) during the evening if it isn't easy to eat in Grand Baie outside of the resort. Is it nice to eat in Grand Baie in local cafes at lunch time? I really want to be able to see places outside of the resort.

Juliette yes no problem in the day. Lots of places to eat out in the day including the local Malls and even fast food like MacDs etc.

Also try Pereybere in the opposite direction.

Do note however that it might be more expensive to upgrade to HB when already there than to pre-book it.
