Past the casino and turn right for the beach car park. Although this is quit a small beach there are still some food outlets. It's a peaceful place with lovely sand and some rocks. There's also changing cubicles, toilets, apicnic area and some benches.

La Cuvette beach was our beach of choice over our 2 week Grand Baie stay, even though it was rather small, something about it captured us and kept us coming back over and over again. We also Caught the most amazing Sunsets from This beach Everyday

It is nice for picnics and to swim. It is clean and had toilet and bathroom and changing rooms. There are a few places that sell food so no need to bring with you. Clean and nice ambience.

Nice small sandy beach. Not too crowded. Lot of options for snacks close to the beach. Not probably the best beach for small children as it gets really deep close to the shore.

It is a rather small but nice beach. There are some very good food stalls where you can buy lunch and drink at descent prices.

A really nice beach with great swimming. Food and facilities on and surrounding the beach could be better but then again it is free...

Located not far from Grand Baie, this beach is nothing like all those shallow, cordoned-off swimming sections on beaches like Grand Baie. Nice and deep, and with tropical fish to enjoy looking at if you have a mask and snorkel. Beautiful setting too.

Although I did not hang out on this beach, it's beautiful and there are changing rooms, toilets and food on offer at vendors in the shade of the trees. Parking is available but not unless you go early. Weekends are a zoo! Couldn't even get close! Stopped on a week day and it was lovely.

White sand with some light waves within grand baie but being next to Royal Palm(housing royalty and presidents) access to that part of beach is restricted as more strictly guarded by hotel security.but very nice to swim but being side by 3 hotels its small and crowded.these must be visited on weekdays to be enjoyed

Thank Mohmeena M
