Bel Ombre Kitesurf Overview

Bel Ombre is a beautiful beach resort located in the south-west of Mauritius that still has the atmosphere of authentic Mauritius. The kite spot here is perfectly located at the end of Bel Ombre, right in front of the Beach Club. This spot suits all kitesurfing levels.

The spacious lagoon has flatwater, as well as waves further out at the reef. This is the perfect spot for all kitesurfers as it offers a range of good quality but affordable hotels and the Bel Ombre Kitesurf Centre. The close proximity to the main kitesurf beach and resort amenities suit holidaymakers travelling with a non-kiting partner or family.

The Kitesurfing In Bel Ombre Mauritius

The wind in Bel Ombre generally blows side to side-on shore from the left. The entire area is surrounded by a reef belt, very typical for Mauritius, providing super wave conditions outside the reef and perfect flat water conditons inside.
There is some coral patches withing the lagoon for soe beginners we recommned boots. From the beach one is able to see a slightly darker long stretched line, about 20x60m long, which is grass, this area is mainly for the teaching lessons. Beyond this the water turns to a beautiful turquoise colour, where the water is somewhat deeper, perfect for kiters at low tide or for the teaching from a boat. In this area there is an area of approximately 80m long and 8m wide with coral that is marked with a red buoy. Kiters can go over it but are not suppose to jump or pass in low tide conditions.
After the 300m long lagoon, the kiter has to pay attention in low tide conditions because the reef comes close to teh surface. Behind this reef is the open ocean with wave conditions for advanced kiters.
