Grand Gaube is situated in the north-east of Mauritius, south of Cap Malheureux, and about 90 minutes drive from SSR International Airport. Grand Gaube offers a beautiful sea view with the 4 offshore northern islands, Coin de Mire, Ile Plate, Ilot Raphaël and Ile Ronde as background on the horizon skyline.
