LE MORNE LAGOON KITESURF CENTRE, LE MORNE
Planet offer 2 kitesurf schools in le Morne, one based on the beach of St Regis Resort, and the other based at the kitesurf training lagoon. The two centres are around 20 minutes walk apart, although we offer a speed board shuttle service if you are staying at the St Regis and want to use the lagoon (Euro 10 return).

The wind here is side to side on shore, really the perfect direction. There are many kitesurf schools in this area but our partner centre is the only fixed kitesurf station at the spot and stes the standard. The kitesurf centre in Le Morne stocking all the newest North kitesurf equipment at great rental prices. The centre has huge experience running this amazing but complex kiting area.
THE KITING AREAS OF LE MORNE
Directly off the beach by the kitesurf centre you are into a turquoise lagoon and shallow water. The whole lagoon is surrounded by a reef, which is 600 meters off the beach. Depending on the tide, the water might be so shallow at low tide that sometimes neither the reef nor the lagoon can be surfed. Within the lagoon there is enough space for all, even at the busiest times.
Outside you can find two wave spots: “Little Reef” with modest waves and “Manawa” for experienced kiters. The famous “One Eye” is only suitable for experts.
Kitesurf courses for beginners are held in the protected lagoon. We recommend wearing shoes in the lagoon. On the rare occasions there is no wind the center also offers many SUP boards, free to use when pre booking rental with Planet Kitesurf. Moreover Mauritius has several excellent surfing spots, which can be reached directly from the centre.
It is crucial that you observe our on-site team's instructions, as the current, tides and waves may be somewhat dangerous, depending on conditions - and your safety is the top priority!
