We went onto the public beach at Le Morne beautiful white sand and good facilities (toilets) the small beach further up was brilliant for kitesurfing very very windy fun to watch the people flying and surfing, although not a good place if you want to just relax. The local hawkers can be troublesome but act a bit thick and say... More

I've been lucky to travel widely and have seen many lovely beaches from Australia to the Caribbean. This one takes your breath away. You can walk half a mile into the ocean in clear beautiful water, the beach is never busy but the view backwards at the shoreline when you are in the water of mount Le Brabant is the... More

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. Don't expect restaurants and bars - there's one at the end of the beach which is great but otherwise it's just... More

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
