Holidays to Le Morne fall into the low-key category – expect white-sand beaches and a coral-edged lagoon.
Le Morne is a teeny village that sits on Mauritius’ south-west coast. It’s skirted by a turquoise lagoon and soda-white sands, and is looked over by Brabant peak – a dramatic monolith that used to hide the island’s runaway slaves.
Watersports and golf
Watersports are big business here – the lagoon is a magnet for wind and kite-surfers, and the offshore reef is spot on for snorkelling. Back on dry land, you’ve got an 18-hole golf course and the nearby Black River Gorges National Park to keep you busy.
Le Morne’s hotels line up along the beach, on a peninsula. About 15 minutes’ walk away you’ll find the village. With one restaurant and a sprinkling of local shops, the pace here is definitely set to slow. If you fancy cranking the tempo up a bit, head to lively Flic en Flac, 30 minutes’ drive north.
