Hike the Morne Blanc Trail

1 miles 900 ft gain  - Out-and-Back Trail

A quick uphill climb through lush mist forest to a spectacular viewpoint overlooking the coast of western Mahe. 

Morne Blanc, with its shear cliff face, is the most iconic mountain on the island of Mahe. A quick 45 minute climb up a well maintained trail will lead you to a viewing platform with sweeping views of Mahe's west coast.

An early start would be advised because the clouds tend to move in around Morne Blanc's peak around noon, obscuring the beautiful view
