There where about 120 Stalls in total with just about everything you would like or need, its very crammed but well worth the experience in our opinion. Only takes a few hours to walk round max and there is a cafe right outside the bazaar if you need a rest. There are also banks, cash points and money changers just... More

The Bazaar although colourful and worth a visit is unexciting with many stalls all pressure selling the same products. Our major disappointment and concern was finding a caged monkey at the back of the bazaar [ near to stall no 133. , alone in a cage without shade or comfort and on enquiry discovered that it had been there for...

Lots of shops, friendly people. Service in the stores were very good. Huge variety. I loved the shopping trip to Grand Baie Bazaar.

If you are a budget shopper, this is the one place you must visit. Bargain, bargain and then bargain some more, from textiles to souvenirs you are guaranteed to find something at unbeatable prices (if you can bargain politely that is).

At Mauritius, there are not too many places for shopping. There is not much to shop infact in entire Mauritius expect for souvenirs. If you want to visit an average mall, a supermarket, and an ATM Grand Baie is the place. Grand Baie is a place where you can go shopping for your daily needs (water, chips etc) if you... More

Too many of the stalls have the same items, use your bargaining skills to get the best deals. Some locals can be loud and force a sale, use your discretion and say no if need be.

Very good selection of high quality clothes. Sellers are not as pushy and some have prices on their items which make you feel like you aren't being ripped off. Beautiful henna art. We didn't see any fruit and vegetables here.

Good choice here although it is a little tucked away. As other reviews say, make sure you barter - we got a reduction on everything including an embroidered tablecloth and 12 napkins which started at £90 and we got for £30. Less manioc than Port Louis although EVERY stallholder will approach you and start trying to convince you to buy... More

We have been here twice now and you really need to haggle. They all sell similar or the same stuff so you need to get the best price. The sellers are 'in you face' trying to sell their goods but just keep walking! Great place though, and at the back there are some small animals in cages (ahh).There is a... More

Expect knockoffs- from Diesel T shirts to Billabong shorts, Indian saris and sunglasses- but you will find an amazing selection of souvenirs. Not necessarily at bargain prices- so proceed with caution with these charming traders! You need to barter and discount their offering price by at least 50% as a start! But it is an enjoyable morning visit. Take cash... More
