This place has got good options for local shopping. You will find a number of places to eat around or just hangout. The prices are a little overpriced and you may find better rates elsewhere. But the quality of some things are really nice and worth it. Also, it is close to Grand Baie Centre which like a buzzing eatout... More

The overwhelming hassling by the vendors kills the experience. The prices are excessively high and purchasing anything requires haggling. Items for sale at the bazaar are freely available elsewhere on the island, even supermarkets, for a fraction of the price. Pure tourist exploitation, stay well away.

Found better prices at Port Louie waterfront craft market. Mostly clothes and very very hot. Some items were nice if you are willing to face the bargaining. Enjoyed walking around more and other souvenir shops had better or similar prices.

Although small, it was lovely! The people were so very friendly and to get there, walk along the main beach road and then turn up where the Port Louis Express 215 bus stops to pick up folk travelling to PL. Walk a little up the road and there on the left you will find the Bazaar. Naturally, you will find... More

We went here hoping to find a few souvenirs and bargains...but we didn't get anything like it! From the first moment we stepped into the shop, there was someone in our face saying come and have a look in their shop & that they'll give us a good price. It was an absolute nightmare. We couldn't look around at all... More

We were residing in North part of Mauritius and it was easy to reach the place (Grand Baie) from our resort. Buses are available from morning till evening ( Few of them mentioned that the last bus from Grand Baie was at 6 PM!!! but taxi service is available even after 6 PM). On main street one side you will... More

The bazaar is just a place to find overpriced souvenirs and small ‘things’ 3 to 10 times the price you would pay anywhere else in Mauritius. In fact, it was more expensive than the shop in our hotel for a much lower quality! When we first arrived there, we were approached by a lady (mid-thirties), her shop is located on... More

We were not particular impressed. It is like most bazaars that you find in the East, peddling much of the same t-shirts and touristy mementos. I would not recommend it.

Colourful but better visited in a group. You see a bit more of real life. Shop round before you pay for anything . Walk away if needed, I Assure you they will sell you it to you.

You can get heaps of cheap stuff here. clothing, souvenirs,.. Everything made in China. Make sure to haggle. We did not buy anything, but it's fun to stroll through the narrow paths of this covered market.
