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 non-kiting partners or families.

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 within the lagoon, so for beginners we recommend 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 supposed 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 the surface. Behind this reef is the open ocean with wave conditions for advanced kiters.

See What Our Clients Say

Service rating : I have spoken with Matt and Stuart, both are extremely knowledgable about the resorts on offer. They have visited the areas they specialise in, and, are sports enthusiasts. They can tell you in detail about the hotels, areas and sports conditions in detail. They listen to what you want and can suggest or recommend. They are my preferred travel sevice, i have used them twice now and will continue to do so.
Product : Belle Ombre resort is a picturesque resort area with nice hotels.
The beach has white sand has black rocks and lots of coral. The sea has a current so care must be taken when bathing or snorkelling.
Its not the best place for kiting due to the wind with rip, and you can experience difficulty saying up wind in light winds, however an experienced kiter will cope.
The rescue cover is expensive, therefore do not kite alone if you don't have cover. Unfortunately we did not experience a professional kite school here. The shop/school was served by a local person who only knew the prices and could not inform us of local conditions etc. The beach boy caddy's handled the kites roughly (with coral everywhere you will need to be careful) and they were not friendly. We were not impressed by the set-up.
