Feel your heart pounding, the wind caressing your face as you kitesurf the turquoise waters around windswept Le Morne. This is one of the largest lagoons of Mauritius, so you have plenty of room to fly. We love the rush of adrenaline that comes with the watersports available on holiday in Le Morne. This small village is kissed by strong winds, making it perfect for surfing, kitesurfing, windsurfing, paragliding, and sailing.
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
