Situated on the far northeast coast, Grand Gaube is a traditional little fishing village. It is prominently known for the stunning sunrise views it provides early morning. Other than the sunrise, there is one more fascinating view which you can find here. It is of the local fishermen returning to the shore after their overnight trips and unloading their fish-nets with colourful fishes.
How To Reach - From Grand Baie, it is a 20-minute drive towards north on the B13. Follow the signs for Intermart Express and then to B44.

2. Belle Mare Plage

The village of Belle Mare might be tiny and not so eminent, but the beach itself is a famous attraction site. In-fact, this beach is considered among the best on this island. Locals enjoy viewing the early sunrise with a cup of coffee and some fruits. The stunning sunrise views and the talcum-white sands plunged in rosy pink glow makes the complete scene quite picturesque.
How to Reach - It is a 60-minute drive from the airport in Mahebourg. There are many car rental services from the airport.  

3. Sunrise cruise to Ile Aux Cerf

This feature is exclusively limited to those staying at Four Seasons Resort Mauritius at Anahita. Although they can easily take a view at the sunrise while being plunged in their private pools, they do have another option to take part in a sunrise speedboat cruise. The cruise would take you to the nearby Ile Aux Cerf island, which is also eminent for its softly shelving sands and a wide array of aquatic life.
How to Reach - It is a 45-minute drive from the SIR SEEWOOSAGUR RAMGOOLAM INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT. The resort has its own helicopter services as well which lands you directly at the resort’s helipad. 
Entry Fees at Four Seasons Resort Mauritius - It starts from 1000 Euros per person for a single night.

4. Sunrise at Blue Bay

Located just south of the old capital of Mauritius, Mahebourg has located the glorious Pointe D’Esny beach, which is regarded as the best on the island. The beach is covered with small resorts, guesthouses, luxury apartments, and villas. Hence the beach could be found mostly deserted at dawn. So, you can spend me-time on the beach watching the spectacular sunrise.
How to Reach - It is a 5-minute drive from the airport in Mahebourg. You could use any of the car rental services from there. 
The sunrise in Mauritius truly complements the natural beauty of Mauritius. Life oozes from the exotic flora as the yellow-tinged rays meet them. It is a soul rejuvenating experience and its something you must not miss!
