Le Morne

Le Morne is a lovely village resort on a small mountainous peninsula located on the southwest of Mauritius, around an hour’s drive from the airport. Le Morne enjoys a magical laid-back atmosphere with idyllic desert island beaches backed by striking mountains and offers visitors a range of typically upmarket Mauritius hotels, sophisticated apartments and villas surrounded by tropical gardens. This dreamy paradise setting and choice of luxury accommodation make Le Morne holidays a popular choice for weddings and honeymoons. You’ll find charming romantic restaurants offering traditional Mauritian, Creole and international cuisine in stunningly beautiful locations. Nightlife is centred on the local hotels and typically includes theme nights, cultural shows, live music and low-key discos. Exotic Le Morne beach is simply perfect: a mile long stretch of idyllic soft white sand and amazing turquoise water. An outstanding shallow calm lagoon and welcome tropical breezes make Le Morne a particularly popular choice for water sports enthusiasts, with excellent conditions for windsurfing, kite surfing, parasailing, kayaking, sailing and water-skiing. Colourful coral reefs also make this a favourite venue with snorkellers and scuba divers. Hotels here are usually well-equipped and offer everything from swimming pools, gyms and saunas to squash and floodlit tennis. Worthwhile local excursions include the Bois Cheri tea plantation, the sacred lake in the Black River Gorges Park and the beautiful Tamil temple in Abercrombie with its magical mountain setting.
