The iconic hiking trail of Mauritius-Le Morne Brabant has to be definitely among the top things to do while staying in Mauritius. This majestic slave trail is located at the extreme Southwestern tip of the island where you will have the chance to feast your eyes on the most striking views of Mauritius. The rocky peninsula has a summit which covers an area of over 12 hectares (30 acres), and is about 556 meters above sea level.
This majestic mountain has been declared as a World Heritage site by the UNESCO to commemorate the Maroonage (runaway slaves) legacy in Mauritius.
Le Morne Brabant is one of the most preserved and wildest mountains of the island. It is a habitat to a very large variety of endemic and narrow-endemic species, such as the rare Trochetia Boutoniana, which is the floral emblem of Mauritius. Get into the heart of nature while you experience both the extreme opposites of lush greenery together with the rough and dry patches of the World Heritage Site.
The hike is not very physically demanding, although there are a few sections that are steep where using your hands is advisable. It is very exposed to the sun so an early start is recommended.

LUX LE MORNE
The Lux at Le Morne is relatively local to where I live and we try to book out weekends away on the island as often as we can within our budget and time constraints. The intention has always been to experience as much of the island as possible and take mini holidays/breaks for ourselves. This became even more important during COVID, where our thinking was "we live in paradise, so why not take a break in paradise!".
The Lux is located on one of the most beautiful spots/beaches on the island and surrounded by so many things to do and places to go. The beach is our favourite on the island ( please visit our 'Top 10 Beaches' page to see more options and I'll be down there at least once a month.
The Lux has been recently fully refurbished and I look forward to visiting it again where I'll update the review by for now all I can tell you is that I have always enjoyed the Lux Hotel Le Morne, whether it be for a day visit or overnight stay, I personally don't think you will be disappointed.

Situated en route just before you arrive at the Le Morne beachfront, Wapalapam is a great spot for a bite to eat and a leisurely drink. Chef Willi has become a friend, and I can recommend this restaurant for its food, vibe, and staff. Enjoy your time here, and let us know how you got on.
