In the wilder southwest, around Gris Gris, dramatic surf crashes against basalt cliffs and bursts
through blowholes. The peninsula at the south-western tip of Mauritius is dominated by the Le Morne Brabant
Mountain, declared a World Natural Heritage site by UNESCO. Le Morne is very popular with kite surfers and
windsurfers. It is said that this part of the island is home to the most beautiful and widest lagoon.
This region is approx. an hour from the airport.
Le Morne Brabant stretches over fine golden sandy beaches in front of a clear, blue lagoon.
It is also a popular spot amongst kite surfers and windsurfers. The Grand Morne is located on a peninsula
7km to the west of Bay du Cap. The contrast between the snow-white beaches, the turquoise sea and the
tropical surroundings at the foot of the mountains are quite unique.
