Why You'll Love Kitesurfing In Pointe Desny!

  • A wide flat water lagoon perfect for foiling
  • Untouched paradise with a long white sandy beach
  • Set away from the mass tourism of other parts of the island

Kitesurfing Holidays At Pointe D'esny, Mauritius

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.

The Spot At Pointe D'esny

The kite spot at Pointe d'Esny has yet to be discovered by the masses and as a result offers a tranquil, quiet playground where you can really enjoy your time on the water. There is just a small school operated here by the Mauritian kitesurfer that developed the click-bar. Just off a sparkling white beach, a deep flat water lagoon stretches out for a long distance before the reef, providing a blue playground that is just perfect for foiling. The wind here is generally South or South-East which is cross-shore. There is generally a line of small boats at anchor close to the shore so basic skills are needed to get out beyond these to really enjoy the freedom this spot offers. The wind is consistent and clean but is lighter than some of the more popular kitesurf spots on the island so big kites are needed while foiling is the real highlight of this destination. The best months to kitesurf at Pointe d'Esny is between June and September, but you can find wind here all year round.

Other Activities

The embarkation pointe at Pointe Jerome is the ideal place to board a speedboat or catamaran cruise to discover some of Mauritius' most picturesque points. A day spent out on a catamaran, snorkelling, enjoying an onboard barbeque and relaxing on the white sandbank of  Ile aux Cerfs is an absolute must do! The uninhabited island of Ile Aux Aigrettes is also located just off the shoreline at Pointe d'Esny. This nature reserve is well worth a visit to discover the natural trees and birdlife of the island - look out for the indigenous ebony and the pink pigeon! The marine reserve of Blue Bay is also located nearby where a variety of boating and snorkelling opportunities await.
