Kitesurfing in Mauritius
Kitesurfing is a world-recognised sport, and Mauritius has gained a reputation as a world-class kitesurfing location. With over 300 days of wind a year, and varied beaches, you will be able to kitesurf across the island whatever level of expertise.
Le Morne is a well known area of coast used by kitesurfers. This peninsular at the southern tip of Mauritius is constantly exposed to south-easterly winds and abundant wave spots on the reef known as “one-eye”. These are reserved for the more accomplished kitesurfer. There are also waist-deep, flat-water lagoons that are widely used by beginners. You will find two international kiteboarding Organization (IKO) affiliated kite centres on the south coast. The Yoaneye centre is small, yet its five dedicated and passionate instructors are willing to share their enthusiastic teaching for beginners and experts. The Club Mistral Skyrider centre is a larger institution, and has a variety of professional instructors that speak several languages. Luxury hotels on the south coast of Mauritius such as Heritage Le Telfair Golf and Spa resort and Shanti Maurice, A Nira Resort will organise kitesurfing within the Le Morne area for additional fees.
The east coast is less choppy than the south, yet still has continuous south-easterly winds. The long beach at Belle Mare is often the choice for beginners as it has safer waters. However, with wind speeds between force 4-6, Belle Mare still provides a good adrenaline rush. There are several Kitesurfing schools on the east coast of Mauritius, however it is worth taking a look at the One&Only Le Saint Geran. This hotel offers a wide variety of watersports and is affiliated with the International Kiteboarding Centre and John Battleday Water-ski and Wakeboard Academy (JBWA). The Ile aux Cerfs island is another highly recommended place to Kitesurf, yet its unpredictable currents make it a choice reserved for experienced surfers.
There are many Kitesurfing opportunities across Mauritian coastlines, and as world-class kitesurfing championships play out annually, take this opportunity to get involved, learn a new skill, and seek an adrenaline rush.
