Guest Review: A magical trip to Mauritius

Planet Windsurf Holidays was honoured to recently be able to send Nico Gatto to the wonderful island of Mauritius for the windsurfing getaway of a lifetime. He came back enthused, thoroughly relaxed and dreaming of his next adventure.

Here’s what he had to say about his trip:

“I had one of my best ever holidays of my life and wanted to thank Planet Windsurf Holidays for being so incredibly helpful and professional. The fact that we managed to organise this on a Saturday for the following Tuesday is amazing and the offer at the St. Regis was hard to believe!

Mauritius is a stunning place which I will almost certainly visit again. I visited very many parts of the island, trekked up two mountains (Le Pouce and Le Morne Brabant), visited the sacred lake of Grand Bassin, towns, forests, craters, waterfalls, landmarks…


And of course, I windsurfed in the most beautiful spot I have ever seen. I even managed to do some, very basic, wave windsurfing which I had never done before and the wind conditions were spectacular.


I also visited Solana Beach on the other side of the island and I liked it. But the St. Regis is on another level when it comes to luxury and location. 


Thanks to Planet for helping me make this incredible, last minute, holiday possible and say how wonderful it was. I shall for sure recommend Planet Windsurf Holidays to whoever is organising a windsurfing trip somewhere.”

Thank you for the kind words and beautiful images Nico, we look forward to sending you off on another fabulous windsurfing holiday soon!
