Set well back from the main road you first walk past a number of shops and restaurants. The bazaar has the usual range of tourist items for sale and prices are reasonable. However the Craft Market in Port Louis is much better and worth visiting before making your purchases in Grand Baie. None the less it is worth a visit... More

It was my 2nd visit to the Grand Baie Bazaar, a few years back and last week again. I find it good to do my shoppings here. They have a wide variety of goods available and to choose from.

Well it's okay for the experience but I wouldn't recommend it. We preferred the shops on the road plus SuperU. I felt the haggling was too much, I'm not the best at that. Plus some of the items on the stalks had been there for years. Overall go to say you've been compare prices then go to SuperU.

Not my cup of tea. Pushy people and crammed in. Fake items at high prices. I didn't like this place it made me nervous

This market wasn't overly impressive. As can be expected the traders hassle you to come in to their shops but it's to the point that you don't really get the chance to browse properly. The prices are really not that great-some are a rip off. For example one vendor was asking for the equivalent of about £18 for a t-shirt.... More

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
