LeMorne Travel Guide

by our Mauritius expert Conrad Freethy
Conrad FreethyThis peninsula is at the south-west tip of Mauritius and on an already balmy island has its own even more wonderful micro-climate. It is dominated by the 1800ft basalt rock of Le Morne Brabant that rises abruptly from the low surroundings (Mauritius has no real mountains and not many hills). There are many caves in the steep hillsides and a sad history of a fugitive slave colony that leapt to their deaths at the sight of an expedition coming to grant their freedom. The rock and peninsula are surrounded by a beautiful shallow lagoon making the area a highly regarded tourist spot. Although there are many sheltered beaches, it is on the windward side of the island so is popular for kite and para-gliding watersports.
