Le Morne Brabant, a peninsula at the south-western tip of Mauritius, is well worth a visit. The lone basaltic rock soaring 556m above sea level is one of the most imposing sights on the island. A beautiful adjacent lagoon is a visitor favourite. The peninsula is one of the last refuges of one of the rarest plants in the world, the mandrinette (Hibiscus fragilis).
Here you can also enjoy diving, fishing and windsurfing.
