The District of Grand Port is of great historical importance since it is in this locality that the first European settlers, the Dutch, landed in Mauritius and unsuccessfully tried to establish a colony. The Grand Port ruins have been restored and are an important tourist attraction. The first capital of the island was situated in the District before being moved to Port Louis, under French rule.

Mission

“To ensure that the District Council of Grand Port fulfills its statutory commitments effectively and efficiently and that the area it serves becomes a better place to live in.”

Vision
