We made it to Pic-nic sur l'ile aux benitiere, after navigating around Crystal Rock. What a cool little surprise to see living trees growing out of this small wonder!

This is a nice thing to see as it is famous in Mauritius. Unfortunately it is a very crowded place and it is said that it may fall over one day due to erosion. You can snorkel around but there are no fish as it...More

The views are beautiful here if you can get a moment where the boats aren't speeding past the iconic Crystal Rock and the waters are indeed very clear and very shallow however, there aren't many tropical fish to see and the corals are dwindling :-(...More

Hired a kayak and paddled out to here. The only thing that could've made it more relaxing and idyllic would have been to visit here when the bigger tourist boats were elsewhere. That said, it's pretty picture-perfect and you can dive around it's perfectly crystal...More

The Crystal Rock is lovely natural attraction in Le Morne however I wouldn't pay to see it on it's own. I did a trip with 'Karlos' which included swimming with dolphins, snorkelling and viewing the crystal rock which was great. You can't really snorkel around...More

It's sunny; usually around 26 degrees but some times it's quiet windy (which is great for kite surfing though) It is winter season and some days there are random showers but they don't last long 😊 Enjoy your trip!!
