Le Morne Beach

Le Morne, Mauritius

Le Morne

In centuries past, the fissures of the eponymous basaltic rock that towers 556 metres above the Le Morne peninsula were famously used as a refuge by runaway slaves. Today, people come to Le Morne not only to witness the iconic rock – now listed as a World Heritage Site on account of its chequered past – but also to take advantage of the immaculate three-mile beach that stretches beneath it.


Enjoy magnificent sunsets or a dip in the calm, clear lagoon that surrounds Flic en Flac. Those looking for a more dramatic seascape should head for Tamarin or Le Morne further south.
