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.

I was surprised at the extend of the bazaar. Based on reviews I expected a glorified flea market. It was much more. Bought lots souvenirs, pearls and jewellery. Prices are very reasonable and they take cards!!!!!

if you looking to buy souvenir this is the place to buy souvenirs before leaving Mauritius. Bargain as much as you can as you can as they really have a loot of profit margin .

We took the bus here and it was a great market, Mon - Sat 6am till 6pm. There was no hard sell and you were able to browse at leisure.

For anyone with no experience of how to negotiate, be wary of the prices and don't accept the first price you're given. Many of these vendors are highly-practised at selling their wares at... More

interesting to mingle amongst the locals. the shopping at the markets is apparently a big tourist attraction. the locally produced good are worth purchasing as a souvenir, however the authenticity of international brand name apparel is questionable

Lots of fun and really colourful. Combined with a trip to Grand Baie, it makes for a really lovely morning.

Cheap as chips, good to shelter from a tropical storm on our last day of our holiday. Usual major haggling to be done from over inflated prices. Offer 1/4 of what vendor wants, ignore hurt expression, and the haggle begins. Usually get for half original price. If not walk away, you'll get it for the price you want. Nice eatery... More

Nice walk around at the New Mall or catching a boat/Catamaran to Gabriella Island (you have to experience that!)
