Le Morne Holidays

Located in south western Mauritius is the Le Morne peninsula, which is a popular destination included in all Mauritius holiday packages. Comprising of the monolithic Le Morne Brabant, which was used as a refuge for slaves in the early 19th century and a breathtaking peninsula accompanying it, Le Morne makes for ideal Mauritius historical holidays. Declared a UNESCO world heritage site for its mournful slave history, Le Morne also boasts of some of the best beaches in Mauritius along its 4 kms long shoreline, making it suitable for Mauritius beach holidays. Today it houses some of the plush hotels of Mauritius and is thoroughly exploited for its adventurous thrills by tourists who come here to enjoy exciting holidays in Mauritius.

The imposing 556 metres high Le Morne Brabant is primarily visited for its historical significance by travellers who come to spend their holidays in Mauritius. Slaves who took their refuge here flung themselves to death from this vast mountain of stone, in order to escape the pains of slavery.  Le Morne also fares in almost all Mauritius holiday packages for its scenic beauty and coastal splendours. With several world class accommodation options to its credit, Le Morne is extensively visited as a part of Mauritius holidays. The adjoining crystalline blue lagoon is a travellers delight. Mostly uninhabited, Le Morne has a strange wilderness about it, despite the development of a huge array of hotels and resorts. It is also famous as the most popular kite-surfing spot which is enjoyed by travellers coming for holidays in Mauritius. Naturalists invade the region for some rare species of plants which are extensively found here.
