Located at the southwest tip of Mauritius, Le Morne is one of the nation’s largest lagoons with idyllic white sand beaches lining five-star retreats that offer ultimate opulence.
With plenty of watersports available, such as surfing, paragliding and sailing, Le Morne is ideal for those who love the ocean; discover sheltered coves, topaz waters and see stunning sunsets that make this destination a truly special one. We highly recommend taking a guided tour to the top of Le Morne to soak up and be in awe of the 360 degree panoramic view. Then, head back to your resort for a cocktail by the pool before indulging in a magnificent dinner flavoured with local delicacies and spices. It doesn’t get much better than that.
Uncover more of Mauritius and twin your stay in Le Morne with a trip to the north of the islands, exploring Grand Baie and Port Louis for an Indian Ocean experience like no other.
Grab your clubs and head for the scenic golf course at Paradis. This 18-hole, par-72 golf course is carved into the Morne Peninsula, with fairways and greens curling splendidly along the turquoise waters of the lagoon and against a backdrop of the dramatic Le Morne Brabant Mountain. Let the professionals teach you their secrets or head straight out to the smooth fairways and bunkers bordered by bougainvillea, poinsettias, and coconut trees.
The village of Le Morne is set beneath the dramatic arch of the basaltic monolith, Le Morne Brabant. The steep slopes of the mountain are dotted with caves and overhangs. There are also two rare plants, the Mandrinette and the Boucle d'Oreille, found growing on the sides of the mountain.

Île aux Benitiers includes two islands situated off the coast of Le Morne, one large and one small. The large, main island, Île aux Benitier, is cloaked with a coconut plantation and is accessible by boat. A colony of migratory birds lives on the northern tip of this island. The small islet of Îlot aux Benitier is private and only accessible during certain months of the year.
Our favourite time to visit Mauritius is between December and April. The weather is warmer, the clear, blue Indian Ocean is more inviting than ever, and the markets of Grand Baie are bustling with bargains.
Most people choose to visit Mauritius during the island’s summer, November to April, to make the most of warmer temperatures. In general, the north is warmer and drier than the south.
Mauritius enjoys warm tropical weather year round, but the coolest months are May to October. As a tropical island rain is common, but sometimes showers can last for an hour late afternoon and dry up very quickly.View all hotels in Le Morne
