Le Morne combines a palm fringed, white sandy beach with offshore coral and the looming beauty of the nearby mountain. Snorkel a few meters into the sea with countless fish. Although there a a number of high end resorts along the beach, a few public beaches ensure effective access along the stretch. Public beaches have toilets and shade. When you... More

A fantastic beach with the best view of Le Morne mountain. The water is crystal clear. The only thing that didn't make it perfect was the vast amount of coral mixed with the sand, but that's nature for you!

The beach here is perfect if you want a get away from it all quiet experience. With the large Le morne mountain as a backdrop and beautiful clear water that us calm enough to swim in its a joy.

Beautiful beach with good snack bar. There is a strong side current which you need to be careful of if you are not a good swimmer. No problem if you stay close to the shore

This is a very beautiful beach in the south west coast of Mauritius. The public beaches are nice to spend time with family and good for swimming.

I have stayed several times for my holidays around Le Morne Beach, staying in Le Paradis Hotel & Golf Club, in Dinarobin, in Les Pavillons (now renamed Lux Resort) and I can definitively say that the best part of this beach is located on Le Paradis Hotel & Golf Club side. Why ? Because you are closer to coconut rock... More

Nice, long, clean and very white beach with a slow slope into the ocean. Good restaurants, especially at the Lux-resort!

Great place for kitesurfing. Also if you take family who dont surf, there is a public beach next to Lux hotel that is sheltered from the wind and has a great eatery with fresh fish where you can leave your kids/wife for the day. Best to have a car to move around. Also i stayed in a flat 8 min... More

I loved the beach of Le Morne - the waters were so clean and blue, the snorkeling was great, I loved seeing all of the tropical fish and bright corals... however, minor forewarning, it is winter in Mauritius in August so the waters were brisk which felt quite refreshing but after awhile I was freezing! Also, bring sand shoes as... More
