With its exceptional microclimate, the Morne Peninsula is one of the sunniest regions of Mauritius. Le Morne Mountain classified a UNESCO World Heritage Site, peaks at 556 metres and covers a surface area of 12 hectares. It once was a refuge for slaves who were fleeing the plantations in the 18th and 19th centuries. Le Morne lagoon, one of the most beautiful of Mauritius, is the perfect place for water sports. Located off the western coast of Mauritius, l’île aux Bénitiers, will seduce those who love swimming and snorkelling with its crystalline waters protected by a coral reef. During the sea trip to the island, it is possible to swim with dolphins in Tamarin Bay.
