Le Morne

A rugged rock crag surrounded by white-sand beaches and an emerald lagoon marks Le Morne, a World Heritage Site.
Visiting Le Morne Brabant and Le Morne Beach will get you outdoors. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Black River Gorges National Park and Nature & Wildlife Tours. Take a break from Le Morne with a short trip to Gris Gris Beach in Souillac, about 34 minutes away. Next up on the itinerary: pause for some photo ops at International Slave Route Monument.

To plan Le Morne vacation without wasting time, ask Inspirock to design an itinerary.

Island of Rainbows and Shooting Stars
A small but surprisingly multicultural island in the Indian Ocean, Mauritius sits just east of Madagascar and offers a white-sand coastline lapped by sapphire waters. The contrasts of colors, tastes, and cultures here makes a vacation in Mauritius richly rewarding, with plenty to do along the coast and deeper inland. A tour of Mauritius usually includes long stops at the island's beaches, which serve as launching points for deep-sea fishing trips, dolphin-watching excursions, and scuba diving adventures. Farther away from the water, you can discover a paradise for hikers and nature lovers. Mauritius is made for explorations on foot, with several volcanic summits and a large national park sheltering abundant species of indigenous plants and birds.
