Kids will enjoy Scuba & Snorkeling and Mont Choisy Beach. Take a break from the city and head to Pereybere Beach and Grand Gaube Beach. Get out of town with these interesting Grand Baie side-trips: Ile Plate Beach (in Cap Malheureux) and Bras d'Eau Public Beach (in Poste Lafayette). Next up on the itinerary: gain insight with L'Aventure du Sucre, stop by Historic Marine, enjoy the sand and surf at Anse La Raie Beach, and admire the natural beauty at SSR Botanic Garden.

Riyadh, Saudi Arabia to Grand Baie is an approximately 11.5-hour combination of flight and car. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 1 hour traveling from Riyadh to Grand Baie. Plan for a bit warmer temperatures traveling from Riyadh in December, with highs in Grand Baie at 34°C and lows at 27°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 7th (Fri) so you can go by car to Chamarel.
