But let's talk locations for a sec. Le Morne Peninsula juts out on the southwest coast and is known for its stunning mountain backdrop and pristine beaches.

Steeped in history, Le Morne village lies in the shadow of its iconic mountain namesake. Locals proudly preserve cultural traditions and tragic tales of escaped slaves. Beyond Le Morne Brabant's imposing beauty, the village exudes authentic Mauritian life from fishing and farming to laidback music gatherings. The mountain remains a UNESCO site for its significance as a slavery refuge. And Le Morne beachfront enthralls with pristine sands set against mind-blowing sunsets. With rich heritage and natural splendor, Le Morne Brabant monument symbolizes Mauritius’ complex past while its village encapsulates enduring local traditions waiting to be discovered.

Pointe aux Piments is a quaint village in the northwest, surrounded by swaying palms and crystal waters. The village was formerly a tiny community of Creole fishermen, but it has since changed to become a beautiful tourist attraction. On that beach, you’ll find food vendors, comfy chairs and evening activities like barbecue. The beach is always crowded and full of life. You will have a good time for sure.

And Balaclava? This quiet bay on the northwest coast is pure tranquility. The Balaclava Beach is known for its pristine beauty and a plethora of watersports activities. The water here is crystal clear and a striking turquoise blue, with the seabed nearer to the shore. The beach itself is of powdery white sand, which is toasted by the sun all day, thus making Balaclava a perfect location for sunbathing and swimming.

So, whether you're after insane views, authentic island charm, or beachy serenity, we've got you covered with resorts in all the hot spots. Get ready to hop around Mauritius and experience the real island magic!
