"Simply the best family windsruf holiday I hev ever had.. Faultless! Thank you Planet. "
A dream spot: a white sandy beach, a turquoise lagoon and shallow water. The whole lagoon is surrounded by a reef, which is 600 metres 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 speed racing or practicing gybes and water starts. Outside you can find two wave spots: “Little Reef” with modest waves and “Manawa” for experienced windsurfers, who can participate in one of the regular surfing excursions to this spot. The famous “One Eye” is only suitable for experts.
In case there is not enough wind for wind- or kitesurfing, our center also offers 12 SUP boards. Moreover Mauritius has several excellent surfing spots, which can be reached directly from the centre. Surf rental is only available together with supervision and is only bookable on site. 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 our top priority!
Mauritius can be a challenging windsurfing spot. For the kids we have a big lagoon with shallow water. In the morning there are light winds which are perfect for the kids lesson.
The wind usually blows from east or southeast (sideshore from the left) and reaches a strength of 3-5 beaufort on average during summer in the southern hemisphere and about 4-6 beaufort during winter. In winter (April to October), the trade wind shows its best side. Between December and April there can be heavy rainfall.
Other than the board sports offered, diving can be arranged, trekking is available and sampling the local Creole/French cuisine is a must. There are also some really good Chinese restaurants on the island (as quite a large proportion of the population are Chinese).
Many of the evening activities revolve around sipping on a well deserved "sundowner" before indulging in some of the great local food cooked on an open barbeque underneath the stars. Needles to say, Mauritius is not a destination for those seeking a lively club scene! Prices on the island are not the cheapest, but the quality more than makes up for this.
