Pretty hot and crowded but worth the visit. Be sure to bargain hard and just be warned that most/all of the branded items are fake. Not bad for a few trinkets to take home though.

Smaller than the famous markets of Port Louis but has all the right stuff. Despite being a popular tourist spot we found some better prices. As usual a little haggling is required between stall to find the right price.

Must visit, it's a walking distance from the main Grand baie beach. Prices are higher than most part of Mauritius that we visited and like any craft market, they all sell same stuff

Only visit if you want to experience a Mauritian Bazaar. However, it is as you would expect. It's a bit touristy and the vendors can be a bit intrusive but this is what you would expect in any tourist bazaar/market anywhere in the world? A...More

there's only 1 place to eat and drink here which isn't cheap. Inflated prices for tourists I would recommend eating elsewhere
