If you have only one day to spare for a hike in Mauritius, Le Morne Brabant is an excellent choice! Leading to one of the best viewpoints in Mauritius, hiking Le Morne Brabant is the quintessential hike
The Le Morne trail entrance with the parking area is the beginning point. Here are a few tips before you start your hike. If anyone tells you that you can’t hike up Le Morne, or you need to pay money for crossing their land to the mountain, or you need a guide, these are all untrue and just carry on with your hike. The fact is that the Le Morne Brabant hike is well signposted and popular so there are nearly always other hikers around.
The first half of the hike is relatively easy with only a slight incline but once you reach the first plateau, the trail becomes more challenging. This hike does require some degree of fitness and experience—it’s quite a bit more challenging than you may think by just looking at it. If you do venture up there, be sure to
take your camera with you as the views are magnificent.
Finally, all your efforts will be rewarded with spectacular panoramic views over the mountains and the underwater waterfall.

SHANTI MAURICE RESORT & SPS
We’ve stayed at the Shanti Hotel at Saint Felix several times and on each visit, we have come away wanting to return.
Each time we’ve stayed at the Shanti Maurice we have treated ourselves to time at the Shanti Spa. First, soaking in a warm bubbling jacuzzi and then indulging in one of the spa massages which always leaves me wanting to come back again.
I’ve spoken about that Rum Shed in the Top 10 Bars in Mauritius section of this website but needless to say whenever we visit the Shanti Maurice we make sure we book an evening at the Rum Shed. Its shabby chic driftwood style makes it the perfect place to unwind whilst enjoying great food and exotic cocktails. The bar itself boasts 200 different types of Rum from all over the world and many as limited editions, what’s not to like!
One of the Shanti Maurice greatest assets is its staff. From the first time we arrived at the Shanti Maurice, we were welcomed by every one of the staff team and on our following visits, we were recognised almost as old friends rather than paying guests.
