Located on a peninsula of land on the southwest coast of Mauritius, Le Morne Beach sits at the base of the Morne Brabant Mountain UNESCO World Heritage Site. Its pristine white sands are contrasted by the beach’s sparkling aquamarine seas, and dark casuarina trees.

Le Morne Beach is possibly the best kite surfing and windsurfing spot on the island, although stand-up paddleboarding and scuba diving are also common. That said, the beach’s amenities are limited to a few snack stalls, so if you’re looking to hire equipment, you’ll first need to head to the nearby village of La Gaulette.

Le Morne Beach does get a little crowded on the weekends, and is generally quietest before 11 am. At the other end of the day, since the beach faces west, it offers incredible colours come sunset.
