Places to shop & best places to eat in Mauritius:

Day trip to Grand Baie

No list of things to do in Mauritius is complete without mentioning Grand Baie. Located in North Mauritius, Grand Baie is a major tourist hotspot thanks to its wide selection of beaches, resorts, shopping malls, restaurants, and nightclubs for those looking to party till dawn. 

For some beach time, you have the choice between the popular Grand Bay public beach, La Cuvette, Pereybere or the more remote Bain Boeuf beach which is found a little outside of the center but still worth a visit. Think white-sand beaches and stunning turquoise water, the postcard-perfect picture of Mauritius!


Azuri Village 

Located in the north of Mauritius, the Azuri village is home to luxury boutiques and apartments and the Radisson Blu Azuri Resort & Spa. If you’re not staying at the resort, you can explore the area for free during the annual Christmas market which usually happens during the first or second week of December. 


Shop and dine at the Caudan Waterfront 

The Caudan Waterfront is found in Port Louis, the capital city of Mauritius. It consists of luxury and affordable shopping malls, a craft market, casino, two hotels and food courts, all built on reclaimed land! 

If you want to sample some local food, head to the “Pat et Rosy Galettes de Manioc” stall which is found, a few meters from the casino. They sell all sorts of food made from cassava such as cakes, rotis and more. They usually open around 11 a.m and get pretty busy during lunchtime. 

From the views over the harbor to the colorful umbrellas and street arts near the Mauritius Postal Museum, Caudan Waterfront is a great place to visit in Mauritius.


Bagatelle Mall

Considered one of the biggest retail destinations in Mauritius, with spacious parking and multiple brand stores under one roof.  Its diverse eateries, clothing stores, entertainment and leisure facilities make it a very popular location for hanging out with family and friends. 


Experience the Port Louis Central Market 

If you’re wondering what to do in Port Louis, why not visit the Central Market? This is where you’ll find a wide selection of local fruits and vegetables, souvenirs, handicrafts, clothes and spices all under one roof. 

Near the entrance, you’ll find a small section on your left selling local food such as “Dholl Puri”, “Ti Puri” and “Roti” as well as some souvenirs and handicraft stalls. On your right is the food court section which goes all the way to the fruit and vegetable stalls. 

You’ll also find a craft market on the first floor. Keep in mind that since it’s a tourist market, prices will be much higher, so make sure to bargain.

The market is open every day from 5.30 a.m to 5.30 p.m except on Sundays when it closes at around 12 p.m. 


Indulge in Street Food

One simply cannot travel to Mauritius without sampling the local cuisine. With Port Louis being one of the most notable street food hubs in Mauritius, you’ll find a whole range of delicious food to eat such as Briani, Dholl Puri, Faratha, Gateaux Piments and more.

Blending flavors from Africa, India, China and Europe, the food in Mauritius is so delicious and cheap. Just order two pairs of Dholl Puri and you’ll have a hearty lunch for less than US$ 1!


Hunt for Street Arts in Port Louis  

Did you know that the city of Port Louis has over 60 street arts thanks to the “Porlwi by Light” festival and the New Chinatown Foundation? Street art hunting has quickly become one of the most unique things to do in Mauritius! 

From Chinese-inspired murals to abstract arts, most of them can be found in Chinatown and Bourbon street. So, get your camera ready and go on a street art hunt!
