Things to do & places to visit in Le Morne, Mauritius
Kite surfers, paragliders and deep-sea fishermen flock to windswept La Morne, a small village on the southwest side of Mauritius. Le Morne Brabant Mountain, a dramatic basaltic rock peak dotted with caves that once harbored runaway slaves, presides over luxury resorts and a wide beach widely regarded as the best on the island. Throw in a shimmering turquoise lagoon and gorgeous sunsets and calling the town "paradise" doesn't seem like a cliché.

- 5.0 Karlos Excursions (609 reviews)
Sunday: 11:00 AM - 4:00 PM Swim with Dolphins • Boat Tours • Fishing Charters & Tours • Sightseeing Tours • Dolphin & Whale Watching
Incredible experience. We did the dolphin swimming excursion and although it was only a couple of hours, it was worth every penny. We had spectacular conditions, and got to swim with dolphins 3 times in our trip. They were only 15 mins from the beach! The boat was clean and larger than I’d anticipated. Swimming with the dolphins was actually quite hard work (lagoon current + swimming fast to keep up with them!) so I’d recommend this only for strong swimmers, although weaker or non-swimmers will still enjoy watching them from the boat, as they get so close. We also went further up the coast to a more secluded & sedate snorkelling spot, also incredible to see literally hundreds of fish surrounding you. Karlos Excursions were responsive on WhatsApp, and the boat crew were friendly and courteous. See more..

Thank you for an amazing experience! Bryn guided us safely through these beautiful mountains, telling us about Mauritius history and culture with such a passion made all the landscape even more meaningful. I've learned so much this morning! About the island, the apple trees with no apples, about climbing, bit of everything really. He also took amazing panoramic pictures for us. What an energetic, passionate, caring human being this guide is! Can't recommend Explorers Mauritius enough! See more..
- 5.0 Airswitch Kitesurfing Mauritius (228 reviews)
Oli from Airswitch is the best teacher who knows how to support each kite student individually!
Surfing & Windsurfing
Every time we visit Oli for kitesurfing, meanwhile for a decade, it’s a pleasure to see him again! We were very warmly welcomed by Oli and Katja. We felt slightly insecure after four years of a kitesurfing break and some uncertainty if we still could do it. Oli took his time and was very patient to explain the basics to us and to introduce the beach and water conditions. Then he helped us to launch and get into the water. After he realised we were able to kite upwind and all was fine, he went back to the beach. At the end of our session he helped us landing again. So we had a great start into our kitesurfing holidays and always felt safe due to the support of Oli and his team. This is the best spot for kitesurfing with best vibes! See more..
- 5.0 Le Morne Kite School (211 reviews)
Best kitesurfing tuition in Mauritius - super friendly team, very professional and great fun
Sunday: 9:00 AM - 5:30 AM Surfing & Windsurfing • Gear Rentals
This was my second lot of kitesurfing lessons, so I was very much a beginner. I had six sessions with LMKS and by the end I was confident with the water start and enjoyed many decent runs on the water. The shallow lagoon where LMKS is based is perfect for kitesurfing, they provided all the equipment needed, including walkie talkies so I could have the instructor in my ear throughout. We were staying at Lux Le Morne and Mario would pick me up each time and drive me back afterwards. I felt looked after, safe and received such great tuition from the instructors - so grateful to Kuba, David and Lois for being so nice, helpful and professional. It really made my holiday in Mauritius extra special. If you want to learn to kitesurf or improve your skills, I would definitely check out LMKS. You can chat with them via WhatsApp, they are super helpful and such a friendly team. See more..

Adrenaline & Extreme Tours • Swim with Dolphins • Boat Tours • Fishing Charters & Tours • Private Tours • Dolphin & Whale Watching • Nature & Wildlife Tours • Speed Boats Tours • Day Trips
I booked this activity to do a surprise to my girlfriend but I was the one that got surprised as well. Perfect experience to never forget. We left Le morne with the sunrise with Navy’s brother, Kevin in a bit bigger boat, we found the dolphins after 15/20min and the experience was unbelievable, swimming very close to them, in very clear waters. Kevin and his helper guide were amazing, very kind and made the experience even better. Then we did snorkeling and catch oysters and sea urchins that they later cooked at the beach for a perfect lunch. I would recommend it for sure. Joao and Carolina from Portugal. See more..
- 5.0 lagoonFlight (135 reviews)
Amazing experience from start to finish!
Sunday: Air Tours
We came across LagoonFlight when looking at how we could see the Underwater Waterfall by Le Morne and they were amazing to deal with from start to finish. The booking process online is very easy and we immediately received confirmation of our booking via WhatsApp including important information and arrangements for the flight. They were quick to respond with any questions and everything felt well organised. When we arrived on the day, my husband and I flew with Nico and Marco who both put us at ease immediately and we felt very safe. The views over the sea were unreal and we would highly recommend LagoonFlight! See more..
- 5.0 Peak Tours by Arnaud Peka (92 reviews)
First class tour guide
Sunday: 8:00 AM - 6:00 PM Multi-day Tours • Adrenaline & Extreme Tours • Taxis & Shuttles • Private Tours • Day Trips
Having heard my friend rave about Arnaud’s tours we booked a tour of the south-west of the island and we weren’t disappointed. Easily booked through WhatsApp, we were picked up in his large van which easily accommodated 7 of us. Very comfortable and water supplied. We were taken straight to the places we wanted to go and Arnaud made suggestions along the route as we didn’t have time to see everything in one day so we made adjustments to the plan whilst travelling. Had a great time at Hindu monuments, La Vanille Nature Park, lunch at a local restaurant, stunning views at Black River Gorge and Seven Coloured Earth with shorter stops at several beauty spots all interspersed with Arnaud imparting his knowledge about everything Mauritian. Arnaud is a lovely guy who knows his stuff and even went out of his way to drop off something I left in his van! Thanks for a fab day out! See more..
- 5.0 Son of Kite (81 reviews)
Great school for beginners
Surfing & Windsurfing
I and my partner did a beginner course with Son of Kite and we were very happy with the results. Despite the fact that we are not very sporty or fit, we learned very quickly thanks to good and explanatory semi-private lessons from Dodo and Jean Jack, while Patrice was keeping a good company on the beach. Shortly we fall in love with the sport. Lessons were well organized, teachers communicative, equipment in decent shape and atmosphere very relaxed and cheerful. We highly recommend this school for any beginner! See more..

We had an amazing private hike/climb up Le Morne with Christopher! We felt very safe with him at the trickier parts and he has such a wonderful positive energy. The views at the top are breathtaking.

Hired a mountain bike for 4 days to tour the South-West corner of Mauritius, everything was perfect. The bike worked really well, had good brakes and good tyres. They delivered and picked up the bike from my resort in Le Morne, and were really really friendly. Also supplied a lock and helmet as you would expect from a reputable bike rental. Was so good to finally be able to get away from the hotel and tour the real Mauritius, thank you so much. See more..

Sun Fun and Bonito
Sunday: 6:00 AM - 6:00 PM Fishing Charters & Tours
We had an incredibly nice fishing trip with the Maranatha crew! Immediately we were warmly welcomed and instructed by Luciano. He explained us the fish species of Mauritius and explained everything we needed to know. We felt so happy when we caught a nice Bonito which we could take to the hotel and eat for dinner (it tasted like heaven)! The great father-son connection is really noticeable and made us feel at home. It is definitely not the last time we have been fishing with the Maranatha crew! See more..

Awesome Kite Surf Lessons with Brabant Kite School.
Sunday: 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM Surfing & Windsurfing
I could spend in total 6 hours with the team of Brabant Kitesurfing and that was more than just fun. As for a real newbie, as me, firstly the basics about kite setup, wind, water streams, safety features were explained. My instructor was always more than friendly and motivating. She gave steadily helpful tops for further improvement and for making learning kite surfing easy and fun. The location at Le Morne is beautiful and provides perfect conditions. I couldn't find any better price/performance ratio. All thumbs up Just try out kite surfing with cool, young, local people, especially from Brabant Kitesurfing. You will never regret it!! See more..

Amazing kite company.
Surfing & Windsurfing • Gear Rentals
Thank you Gary and the team for an amazing time Kitesurfing with you. As someone who has only just started going out without an instructor, it was amazing to have the help and support at this team offer. My kite was taken out for me so I didn’t have the stress of launching on the beach, and I was kept an eye on all the while I was out and when I got in difficulties there are people to help. Made a massive difference to my confidence knowing that there were people keeping an eye on me I can’t thank this company enough they’re absolutely amazing I will definitely recommend them to friends and use them again next year.

Diwali Rest Point
Surfing & Windsurfing • Gear Rentals
We had booked a catamaran trip to Bentiers Island for Diwali and needed a place to rest afterwards instead of driving home and we’re were pleasantly surprised by our lovely little studio apartment. It was on the 3rd floor of Surf House and had a view of the Bentiers island and some of the neighbors Diwali lights. There was a fully equipped kitchen and fridge. We spent most of our time on the balcony and in the end, we didn’t want to leave. Such a gem! See more..
- 5.0 Philo Dolphin Watching (11 reviews)
Brilliant People and Superb Experience
Dolphin & Whale Watching
Eric and Sebastien are two brilliant people keen to make your dolphin watching trip the experience of a lifetime. They leave earlier than most other trips and as a result we found ourselves as the first and only boat with the dolphins. We swam with spinner dolphins 6 times and on each occasion were expertly guided in the water by Eric. We also got to swim with Eagle Rays and Turtles. We know they also often meet bottlenose dolphins and humpback whales. Respecting the animals is key to this trip and we highly recommend you go with Philo (Eric and Sebastien). So much so we suggested the trip to two other couples at Lux* Le Morne who subsequently had exactly the same superb experience. Thanks to Eric and Sebastien for the experience of a lifetime. :) See more..

- 4.5 ScubaCaribe (321 reviews)
ScubaCaribe is back in action after Covid
Sunday: 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM Scuba & Snorkelling • Swim with Dolphins • Boat Tours • Water Sports • Dolphin & Whale Watching
We visited Mauritius the first week of October as the country reopened. Not all business were ready but, ScubaCaribe was in tip top shape. We went for a two dive outing with their dive master and a new hire Ben. Before I get into diving specifics I would like to recommend ScubaCaribe based on friendly staff, good facilities, and being <100m away from an amazing natural area for water sports. As novice divers, having 10 dives prior, good instruction was top priority. Ben delivered on that providing clear guidance, attention to detail, and genuine care for us and the wildlife. I liked that he didn't do everything for us but allowed us to use our training and setup things up under supervision. The boat picked us up right on the beach and took us to Hoi Sion wreck and aquarium dive sites, both full of life. The clam atmosphere created by the crew and dive masters made for a great experience. Will dive with ScubaCaribe again. See more..
- 4.5 Paradis Golf Club Beachcomber (228 reviews)
Great hotel with excellent service
The most exciting golf experience in Mauritius Unforgettable is the only word to describe a round of golf on the course at Paradis. Set against the backdrop of majestic mountains, the fairways and greens curl along the shoreline of a spectacular bay. The claim that this is one of the most beautiful golf courses in Mauritius is a valid one. Built within the resort's grounds, the 18-hole Par 72 golf course stretches along 5,924 metres between the iconic Morne mountain and the crystal-clear lagoon of the Morne peninsula. Much of the creative design of the bunkers and fairways is attributable to international golf legend Tony Johnstone who has spent several years playing the course through its many evolutionary stages.

A symbol of freedom and peace.

It symbolises the importance of freedom in our lives and to promote peace.This is part of slave route of the Indian ocean and was inaugurated on 1st February 2009 marking the occasion of 174th anniversary of abolition of slavery in Mauritius.

- Le Morne Mountain Trail (0 review)
Sunday: Spent 2-3 hours Hiking Trails
Le Morne Brabant is a mountain in the Indian Ocean, southwest of Mauritius. It was the refuge of the maroon slaves between the 18th and 19th centuries, where they gathered in caves and at the top of Le Morne. This place, nicknamed the “Republic of the Maroons”, is today a symbol of the suffering of slaves and their struggle for freedom. The island was first populated by the Dutch in 1638, by a Dutch governor and about twenty families. At the end of the 17th century, 200 Dutch people lived on the island, with between 500 and 1,000 slaves from Madagascar, Africa, India, and Java. However, they abandoned the island in 1710 because it no longer offered enough resources, which were degraded by climatic conditions. See more..
