We've included these beaches for you: Mont Choisy Beach and Le Morne Beach. Explore hidden gems such as Scuba & Snorkeling and Gris Gris Beach. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Port Louis: Le Morne (International Slave Route Monument & Le Morne Brabant), Flic en Flac Beach (in Flic En Flac) and Heritage Nature Reserve (in Bel Ombre). And it doesn't end there: enjoy the sand and surf at La Cuvette Public Beach, take in nature's colorful creations at SSR Botanic Garden, tour the pleasant surroundings at Blue Bay Beach, and contemplate the long history of The Martello Tower Museum.
