This peaceful seaside jewel of Mauritius is located on the southwest coast of the country. Sensibly less crowded than the cities of the north, this region is conducive to rest, calm and serenity. This adds a real touch of charm to its natural beauty.
The village of Le Morne is located in the South of Mauritius, in the South East of the Peninsula is the Morne Brabant Mountain, classified as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. The inhabitants of Le Morne proudly preserve the spirit of the Morne mountain by passing on its history for several generations. Le Morne has kept all the authenticity of a small Mauritian village between coastal fishing and farming. Land of legend, land of remembrance, ancestral land. Many Mauritians come to recharge their batteries, listen to music and rediscover the Mauritian way of life.
Le Morne is bathed in a mild climate all year round and offers its splendid beaches both to holidaymakers in search of tranquillity and to surfers wishing to face beautiful waves. Indeed, there is an internationally renowned spot here called One Eye. The southern part of Le Morne is the ideal place to practice kitesurfing, windsurfing and surfing as the south-east winds are strong and stable. The area also benefits from an acceleration of these same winds thanks to the high mountains of the Black River Gorges, all year round.
Everything is planned for a fabulous holiday: you can walk along the miles of white sandy beaches, do as many water activities as you like, enjoy a spa, or just relax. You can also take a diving excursion to see the beautiful corals up close or watch the barracudas, rays, sharks and other fish. Visit the St. James’ Pass or the Cathedral Cave. Here, many trails form a paradise for hikers.
In combination with the gorgeous landscape and crystalline seawater, the villagers’ courtesy is nothing short of fabulous. In a surprisingly relaxed atmosphere, the inhabitants will welcome you with a pleasant “hello” and a broad smile.
