Shopping in Mauritius
Take time out from beach life and sightseeing and enjoy a spot of retail therapy. Port Louis has the shopping facilities you would expect from any capital and the vibrant area of Grand Baie makes for a great day out. Malls and market places across the islands are the perfect for picking up souvenirs from your trip.
A choice of malls
Flacq Shopping Mall is located on the east coast of the island a short drive from Radisson Blu Azuri Resort & Spa, Mauritius. The mall focuses on quality across its 70 stores and also contains a food court and children’s play area.
Grand Baie (Bay) in the north of the island is home to La Croissette Mall, the largest shopping experience and entertainment complex in the country. With over 110 stores and food outlets in the boulevard-style complex, this is a popular destination for both locals and visitors alike. As well as a shopping haven for high-end fashion brands, it is a bustling area with restaurants, bars, cafés and nightclubs.
Port Louis and Mall of Mauritius
Less than a one hour drive from the hotel is Port Louis. As with most capital cities, you will find shopping avenues and malls selling fashion items. Delve a little deeper and you will come across an array of independent boutiques and market stalls selling handcrafted goods, textiles and jewelry, which make the perfect gifts or reminders of your trip. Central Market is where all the action is, but if shopping here be prepared to haggle hard to get the right price. A little outside Port Louis is the Mall of Mauritius. This comprehensive shopping experience offers you over 130 stores and includes fashion, shoes, beauty, jewelry and much more.
All of these malls offer tax-free shopping.
