Top 5 Kite Spots Mauritius - Kitesurfing and Kiteboarding - Cover

Top 5 Kite Spots in Mauritius

Mauritius, an island surrounded with reef that forms perfect lagoons and waves for kitesurfers. During the winter period (May-November) when consistent trade winds are blowing from 15 to 30knots, this playground becomes the ultimate destination for kite freestyle and wave enthusiasts. Here is my selection of top 5 kite spots in Mauritius. The order is based on the travel route I made, starting on the South coast, traveling along the East coast and finally making my way to the North side of the island.

Le Morne Lagoon

Big, shallow water lagoon with plenty of space for beginners. The water is a bit choppy due to the lagoon’s size and winds are usually strong, but still great for practicing and nailing new tricks. Below the water’s surface is a beautiful white sandy bottom with some sea grass here and there. Reef and rocks are on the right hand side, so I would recommend beginners to stay clear of that area. Once on the water, one can enjoy great scenery with turquoise water, white sand and a backdrop of green mountains. Pure pleasure.

The hotel I stayed in St. Regis Mauritius is a luxury resort with beautiful rooms and a white sandy beach protected from the winds for perfect relaxation. Inside the resort there is Club Mistral Prestige which offers all the services needed; from kite lessons, rental, rescue to exclusive trips and private kite spots.

One Eye

One of the most famous wave kite spots out there. It is a fast left wave, and its reserved only for experts. Rescue boat service is available for 35$. There is only one hotel directly on this spot, St. Regis Mauritius with Club Mistral Prestige as official school there.

Bel Ombre

Located in front of the stunning Heritage Le Telfair, Bel Ombre is a lagoon with not so many kiters, so there is a lot of space to enjoy. The spot has gusty wind along the coast but as soon as you are 50m away the wind becomes stable. The water is a bit more choppy than in Le Morne, but the combination with nice waves that could be an great option for someone that wants to try kitesurfing on a wave for the first time. In the case of no wind the  guys from KiteGlobing will take you wave surfing or wakeboarding.

Belle Mare

Huge lagoon perfect for downwinders, up to 30km trips are being organized by Kitesurf Paradise. On no wind day I went on an SUP tour and a fishing trip in nearby Trou d’Eau, a beautiful place. Even if there is no wind, it’s worth checking it out and having some fun on the water. I stayed in the nice, cosy Emeraude Beach Attitude hotel, with a beautiful beach front and quick connection to kite spot, it offers a range of activities. If you are going there, don’t hesitate to contact them, they will be happy to help you organise your time.

Anse la Raie

This part of the island is less famous than the South for kitesurfing. However, Anse la Raie is one of most beautiful spots on the island and with the right wind direction (East) is definitely worth checking out. If you are heading to that area I recommend staying in Paradise Cove Boutique Hotel, a cosy boutique hotel just next to the spot. If you want to take lessons, contact them to organize it for you. Independent riders can simply pump the kite and kite in the lagoon.

    Thanks for the info of the site, great stuff. See that you recommend clubmistral prestige of Le Morne. one tip here: you ‘d better don’t book/ pay in advance your gear because the policy is: no wind = no refund! quiet frustrating in such a awesome environment.

  7. Steel and suspended coasters tend to be more expensive, and water coasters aren’t quite as profitable.
