View of Le Morne Brabant from Île Aux Bénitiers

The landlord of the house we rented had a friend with a boat who took us out for the day, we saw 3 pods of dolphins swimming around Le Mourne Brabant Mountain, which came right up to our boat (photos to come), and then we had a freshly caught lunch of lobster on the uninhabited island of Île Aux Bénitiers, on this beach. Such a perfect day. :-)

The Bénitiers Island is found a little off the west coast of Mauritius. To reach it you will need some kind of boat transportation. It is easily reached from Tamarin/Black River, Case Noyale or Le Morne.

The first things you see when you reach the island is usually the rocky formation (Crystal Rock) coming out of the sea, looking like a clam shell (Bénitier) from where the island takes its name. There used to be a second similar one, which is no longer there unfortunately. The most beautiful beach of the island is found facing the ocean. From that beach, there is a beautiful view of Le Morne on the left side. The sea is usually shallow and pleasant to sit or lie into for a relaxing time.

This is the cloesest to land side of the island and the sand is a bit boggy, which means it seems to be completely left to nature and unused by humans, we saw lots of wading birds and there's loads of small fish fry in the shallow waters. It's also stunningly beautiful.

Le Morne Brabant is a peninsula at the extreme southwestern tip of the Indian Ocean island of Mauritius on the windward side of the island. It is highlighted by an eponymous basaltic monolith with a summit 556 metres (1,824 ft) above sea level. The summit covers an area of over 12 hectares (30 acres). There are many caves and overhangs on the steep slopes. It is largely surrounded by a lagoon and is a well-known tourist attraction. It is also a refuge for two rare plants, the Mandrinette and the Boucle d'Oreille.

The peninsula was notorious in the early 19th century as a refuge for runaway slaves. After the abolition of slavery in Mauritius, on 1 February 1835 a police expedition was despatched there ostensibly to inform the slaves that they had been freed. At the time the slaves had been using Le Morne summit for many years as a look-out point to spot military despatches from Port Louis being sent to re-capture them. On previous occasions when these attempts had been carried out they had been spotted by the look-outs, the warning issued to the rest of the slaves who chose to leap to their deaths from the rock, (into the area now known as 'The Valley of Bones'), rather than be recaptured back into slavery. This final expedition was carried out in full knowledge of what had happened previously and can only be understood as an extremely vindictive act by the colonial authorities following abolition. Since then the date is celebrated (particularly by Mauritian creoles) as the Annual Commemoration of the Abolition of Slavery. Le Morne is a World Heritage Site and has a monument to the slaves at the base of the rock which is quite moving and well worth a visit. The monument includes an inscription of this extract from the poem "Le Morne Territoire Marron" by Richard Sedley Assonne; "There were hundreds of them, but my people the maroons chose the kiss of death over the chains of slavery. Never must we forget their noble deed, written in the pages of history for the sake of humanity".

The peninsula of Le Morne benefits from a micro-climate. Le Morne Brabant Mountain was submitted to the candidate list of the World Heritage sites in 2003. In 2008, the nomination process concluded when UNESCO inscribed the site on the World Heritage List.
