Why you'll love kitesurfing in Mauritius!

  • Mauritius offers impeccable kitesurfing conditions due to the combination of incredibly reliable wind, perfect flat water and kitesurf lagoons with world class waves at the same spot
  • Excellent kitesurfing on the same beach as stunning luxury hotels at affordable prices
  • Suits all levels of kitesurfers

The Islands of Mauritius and Rodriques (also part of Mauritius) are set in the warm waters of the Indian Ocean, just off the coast of southeast Africa. Planet Kitesurf can arrange either direct flights to Mauritius from London or Paris (in Europe) or indirect flights via Dubai or Johannesburg if you are considering combining your stay with South Africa or Dubai.

If you asked any well-travelled kitesurfer where is the best kitesurf destination in the world, then Mauritius would be their answer! Mauritius offers impeccable kitesurfing conditions largely due to the combination of incredibly reliable wind, perfect flat water, kitesurf lagoons with world class waves at the same spot, and stunning luxury hotels at affordable prices. A kitesurf holiday to Mauritius is one of the best value luxury kitesurf holidays available. The reason being that the windy season (May to November) coincides with the low season hotel prices as the bigger tourist market want to avoid the wind. Therefore, as kitesurfers, we get the best of both worlds; amazing wind and the best prices!

At Planet Kitesurf we know exactly when and where to travel in Mauritius to find the best kitesurfing. We have experts travel to Mauritius every summer to make sure we have the most up-to-date hotel information and ensure that we only work with the very best Mauritius kitesurf schools and resorts. It is of the utmost importance to us at Planet Kitesurf that we select the correct location and hotel for your kitesurf level, budget and resort aspirations. 

It is always best to speak directly with us to discuss your holiday plans. Our website is to be used as a point of reference but there is no substitute for speaking directly to an expert kitesurf travel advisor. However, as a rough guide we would summarise as follows:

The best time to visit Mauritius for a kitesurfing holiday is May through to December. However, the most reliable months are August through to October, but other months are very consistent too.

Le Morne: The south-west have the best conditions. If you want an exquisite luxury hotel with access to the premier kitesurf & windsurf location with flat water and waves then St Regis in Le Morne is outstanding.

Bel Ombre: If you have a smaller budget then there are some brilliant value good quality hotels in Bel Ombre, just a 15 minute drive from the kitesurf resort Le Morne. The kiting here is marginally better than Le Morne for flat water conditions on the lagoon. There are also some nice waves here too, however, we still think One Eye in Le Morne is the best wave - for very advanced riders only!

Rodriquez Island: If you want to get away from it all and have ‘as far as the eye can see’ flat water then Rodriquez Island is amazing but a lot quieter and more spread out than the mainland. We have some stunning properties in and around the southwest area if you don’t mind being away from the beach (we will include car hire). The most stunning and very highly recommended of these properties is Lazaz Chamarel, a truly amazing barefoot luxury property.

If you have the time then we can easily arrange a tailor made tour to encompass one or many of these areas. We can combine the best Mauritius kitesurf location with other areas such as Reunion Island (great for a few days trekking and adventure), stunning wellness and spa retreats in the north where the weather is warmer or even combine with another country such as South Africa or Dubai.

On the east coast of Mauritius, 1km south from Belle Mare village, lays the picturesque beach Palmar. Palmar, like Le Morne on the south coast, is world renowned for being an incredibly beautiful beach offering a wide variety of watersports. Both destinations are must see kitesurf, SUP, and surf destinations. The kiting at Belle Mare offers beautifully flat and uncrowded water inside a closed turquoise lagoon with no currents or boat traffic. 

What sets the east coast of Mauritius apart from many other destinations is the variety of organised downwinders. The east coast is the perfect place to go on a downwinder as the combination of flat water and waves to kite on throughout the journey, along with the crystal clear waters will keep you mesmerised.

Planet Kitesurf are absolute specialists for Mauritius kitesurfing holidays. We strongly recommend speaking to one of our Mauritius travel experts today.

Surrounded by a crystal clear lagoon in the Indian Ocean, is the secluded island of Rodrigues. The small, windy island is located around 400 miles off the coast of Mauritius. The entire island is only 5 miles by 11 miles, but for miles there is perfectly flat shallow water. Whilst on the outside, the reefs are constantly battered by the oceans swells. The flatness of the lagoons water makes this an absolute speed paradise, and is regularly described as the fastest place on the planet.

To get to Rodrigues, you need to take a connection in Mauritius where we have two other amazing kitesurf destinations, Le Morne which is great for flat water, and has some of the world most renowned waves. The other is Belle Mare which is another flat water paradise, and offers some amazing downwinders. Planet can easily combine these destinations to make you an amazing kitesurf holiday in the Indian Ocean.

Planet Kitesurf introduced Northern Mauritius following an increased demand for an alternative to the most famous spot of Le Morne, in the south of the island, and Belle Mare in the West. Although we regard Le Morne as one of the best kitesurf locations in the world, it can get quite busy, especially in high season. So if you want to enjoy the amazing wind conditions and atmosphere of Mauritius, but with far fewer kiters on the water, Anse Le Raie in Northern Mauritius is worth a look. Another strong selling point for this part of Mauritius is the big range of amenities, shopping, and nightlife that can be found a short drive away in Grand Baie.

As always, here at Planet Kitesurf we are very particular about the accommodation that we offer, and we will only recommend properties that we have personally checked and know to be good. We also make a conscious effort to avoid the package holiday type of hotels as, although they can be cheap, they come at a price! In Northern Mauritius we have some superb high quality boutique style beachfront properties that are perfect for couples, while others have some fantastic family facilities.

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 non-kiting partners or families.

Pointe d'Esny is situated on the South East coast of Mauritius. Boasting the island’s whitest stretch of beach, and located a mere 15-minutes drive from the airport, Pointe d'Esny offers a secluded, peaceful, location in one of Mauritius' untouched areas. Offering a tropical paradise setting, fit for any postcard, this part of Mauritius boasts the largest lagoon on the island. Not far away is the charming historical village of Mahebourg, however, the real charm of Pointe d'Esny is that it is located away from the crowds and commercial resorts found elsewhere in Mauritius.

The large flat water lagoon, with its light to moderate winds, provides a haven for foilers and those who want to learn how to kite foil.
