We have spent over a week at Grand Baie getting settled and learning what’s available to us during the next few weeks we are staying here. One of the highlights at Grand Baie is a new hyper-market/shopping center called “Super U” a half-mile away from the end of the bay. The supermarket portion is just like any large super market you would see in the US, with the addition of a nice selection of french-style bakery choices. So, we are all set on supermarket foods. We also have sampled some of the restaurants and found a nice happy-hour bar for inexpensive drinks at sunset.
Yesterday we took a bus and did some sightseeing inland. And today we are hiring a car to travel to the far end of the island to do more. I’ll post about the sightseeing later.
Here’s a map showing our location at Grand Baie. The map is interactive if you want to zoom in and see more.
