Mauritius, a kitesurfing destination!

You are a kitesurf addict or keen on giving it a try? Mauritius is the perfect place for kitesurfers – beginners and veterans alike. From North to South and East to West, browse through the island’s most attractive kitesurfing spots, right now!

North coast: Anse La Raie

At the northern tip of the island, Anse la Raie’s pristine beach is set away from the tourist surge and offers a stunning view on remote islets. The shallow waters and sandy seabed make it an ideal site for beginners. Those who are still learning or who enjoy freeride and wave riding will especially love it. The site enjoys a few extras, such as less traffic than on other beaches, a splendid lagoon offering various possibilities and a vast freeride zone.

South coast: Bel Ombre

A wonderful beach, a pleasant setting, a dazzling lagoon exposed to cross-shore winds… The Bel Ombre site is adequate for every level, from first-timers to those who are looking to hone their skills. You will feel safe since the water is not deep and you can stand above the surface. Another upside – and none the least – is that the site is never crowded, which leaves you with an expansive lagoon to ride across at your leisure. If you are inexperienced or unequipped, you can rent the necessary equipment at the kitesurf centre on site.

East coast: Poste Lafayette

Poste Lafayette is a magical spot which combines all elements to please most kitesurfers: a flat lagoon, superb waves, shallow waters for beginners to practice with confidence and deeper water spots to safely try a few tricks. A crystal sea, a long quiet beach and filao trees providing shade for picnic lunches lie in the background. Another fantastic spot on the eastern coast is Palmar, with consistent winds, a wonderful sea bottom and a kitesurf training centre, where you can also rent surfing equipment.

Southwest coast: Le Morne

While Le Morne is the most popular and the most frequented kitesurfing spot, it still offers an authentic experience through its quaint village, its endless beach considered as one of the most beautiful on the island, its turquoise lagoon and amazing sunset panorama… A real piece of paradise! When it comes to kiteboarding, shallow waters over a distance of a hundred meters and steady winds make it ideal for beginners, but it also has some nice waves for more experienced surfers to have fun. Looking for training courses or equipment to rent? There are several kite schools in Le Morne that will be pleased to help you.

Now, how about you explore Mauritius on a kiteboard?
