Le Morne ©
A rugged rock crag surrounded by white-sand beaches and an emerald lagoon marks Le Morne, a World Heritage Site.
You'll discover tucked-away gems like Le Morne Brabant and Ebony Forest Reserve. Take a break from Le Morne with a short trip to Gris Gris Beach in Souillac, about 42 minutes away. And it doesn't end there: explore the wealth of natural beauty at Black River Gorges National Park, admire the sheer force of Chamarel Waterfall, stop by Rhumerie de Chamarel, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Heritage Nature Reserve.

For photos, ratings, and tourist information, read Le Morne attractions planner.

Rome, Italy to Le Morne is an approximately 16-hour flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 3 hours traveling from Rome to Le Morne. Expect much hotter temperatures when traveling from Rome in December; daily highs in Le Morne reach 35°C and lows reach 27°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 23rd (Mon) so you can travel to Rodrigues Island.

Rodrigues Island

Rodrigues Island ©
Flung far out in the middle of the Indian Ocean, rocky Rodrigues Island sits in a turquoise lagoon surrounded by a fringing coral reef.
Discover out-of-the-way places like Trou d'Argent Beach and Île aux Cocos. There's still lots to do: tour the pleasant surroundings at Francois Leguat Giant Tortoise and Cave Reserve, take in the architecture and atmosphere at St Johns Church, see some colorful creatures with a scuba or snorkeling tour, and take a peaceful walk through Grand Montagne Nature Reserve.

To see reviews, photos, and more tourist information, refer to the Rodrigues Island road trip planner.

Do a combination of car and flight from Le Morne to Rodrigues Island in 3 hours. Alternatively, you can ride a ferry. In December, daily temperatures in Rodrigues Island can reach 34°C, while at night they dip to 28°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 26th (Thu) early enough to travel to Grand Baie.

Grand Baie

Wide-open beaches with dazzling blue water and a relaxed coastal atmosphere lure visitors to take a trip to Grand Baie.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at La Cuvette Public Beach and Chateau De Labourdonnais. Change things up with these side-trips from Grand Baie: Flic En Flac (Swim with Dolphins & Scuba & Snorkeling). There's still lots to do: take in nature's colorful creations at SSR Botanic Garden, kick back and relax at Ile aux Cerfs, stroll through Plage de Trou aux Biches, and stop by Island Gems And Jewels.
