Le Morne Brabant, Le Morne
(4.7/5 based on 420+ 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.

  • Very nice view of the Lux le Morne hotel, where we stayed is placed in a green... with a painful past.

  • Le Morne is not a hiking, climbing but straight mountain climbing. Since aug Yanature to climb, but this is without really requires some experience. I with zero experience, but good condition have had real fear. My opinion is that t on some pieces really irresponsible to climb without experience. Super straight and you can not completely rely on the rope. At the start you have to subscribe in a Scripture, but when we came back there was no one left to us from writing. Follow your feelings and stop really climbing if t doesn't feel right because it just gets trickier to the top. Especially the descent is not without dangers.

  • A natural site of exception, as this imposing rock dominating this part of the coast to the southwest of the island. A public beach is available for those who cannot afford the incredible hotel Dinarobin, or even paradise.
