We are going to Maurtius mid May. We want to stay in two areas, Le Morne to explore that part of the island and do the trip of swimming next to the dolphins and then we want to head north west to more lively destinations. I wanted initially to stay in Grand Baie to experience the buzz of restaurants and bars at night but I also want to stay in a really nice beach for swimming snorkeling. Then I learnt that Grand Baie does not offer a nice beach due to all the boats. I was thinking then of Trou aux BIches. How far is Trou aux Biches to Grand Baie by car? Also can you recommend me a beach on that area where I can stay in a hotel and then be able to explore the village for a few nice bars and restaurants? We do not want to eat in hotels. Thanks so much in advance for your appreciated recommendations.
