Le Morne Brabant, Le Morne

(4.7/5 based on 500+ reviews on the web)
The rugged, mountainous peninsula of Le Morne Brabant stands as a World Heritage Site and symbol of the abolitionist movement in the country. In the late 18th and early 19th centuries, runaway slaves sought shelter here, living in the caves cut from the basalt rock. In 1835, Mauritius abolished slavery, and a police expedition traveled to the peninsula to inform the runaways of their freedom. Tragically, the community misunderstood the intentions of the approaching officers, and many jumped from the cliffs to their deaths. Book a guided tour of this historical site, and along the way explore the peninsula's unique microclimate, interesting plant life, and impressive geological features.

  • An escalation that can be done without a guide and free: the first part is very facile(route pour 4x4) on about 200 m in altitude and then after a barrier that becomes steeper. The fin(derniers 50 m de D+) is a more difficult but there are ropes to help. View up on the lagoon, the island to the clams and the North of the island. You just want to stay there for hours. Plan 3:45 (1 / 2 h above) view sumptuous

  • Dominating the southwest coast of Mauritius with its 557 m, the Morne Brabant is a chance for the lovers of climbing, and a painful reminder of the history of slavery... Among the great hotels located nearby, special mention for paradise and dream beaches, without forgetting its 18-hole golf course, internationally known.

  • The area around the Le Morne is recommended. The beach is beautiful, walking on the beach, as well as on the Le Morne with great views recommended.
