Situated on the south-western part of Mauritius, the entire Le Morne peninsula takes the appearance of a hammerhead shark when viewed from a bird's eye viewpoint. The coastline along the entire peninsula is home to some of the most beautiful beaches on the whole island, including the renowned Le Morne beach.
Le Morne Brabant
The first thing you notice about the Le Morne beach is not the beach itself, but the Le Morne Brabant mountain, a giant monolithic rocky structure that extends into the lagoon off the coast of the peninsula.
Standing at the height of over 550 metres above sea level, the mountain offers jaw-dropping views of the entire island of Mauritius, as well as a panoramic 360-degree view of the whole ocean for as far as the eye can see. The entire geography of the Le Morne beach, which stands at the foot of the Le Morne Brabant, is shaped by this gigantic rock structure.
With the lagoon tucked in behind the cliff face, there are almost no waves on the beach, making it a very family-friendly swimming area, especially if you have children along with you.
Activities at the Le Morne Beach
The Le Morne beach is also very well-known for being a hotbed of the various beach and watersport activities, such as kitesurfing, windsurfing, as well as scuba diving and snorkelling. A little off the coastline of the Le Morne beach stands the Crystal Rock, which is as much a part of the beach as is the Le Morne Brabant Mountain.
The Crystal Rock is a small islet of a rocky outcrop, which is very famous for various activities such as snorkelling, scuba diving, and glass-bottom boat rides where you can watch the vast variety of colourful marine life in this part of the ocean. There
The Crystal Rock stands are around 200 metres off the south-western coast of Mauritius, and boat tours are organised through the day to take you to the rock and once you’re done, bring you back to the Le Morne beach.
Extremely popular among honeymooners, the Le Morne beach is known as one of the top beaches in Mauritius, and sitting at this beach and watching the sunset behind the Le Morne Brabant mountain is a one-of-a-kind experience that you’ll never forget.
