The islands of Mauritius and Rodriquez (also part of Mauritius) are set in the warm waters of the Indian Ocean, just off the coast of south-east Africa. Planet Windsurf 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 windsurfer where is the best windsurf destination in the world, then Mauritius would be their answer! Mauritius offers impeccable windsurfing conditions largely due to the combination of incredibly reliable wind, perfect flat water, windsurf lagoons with world class waves at the same spot and stunning luxury hotels at affordable prices. A windsurf holiday to Mauritius is one of the best value luxury windsurf 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 windsurfers we get the best of both worlds; amazing wind and the cheapest prices!

At Planet Windsurf we know exactly when and where to travel in Mauritius to find the best windsurfing. 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 Mauritian windsurf schools and resorts.

Our website is to be used as a point of reference but there is no substitute for speaking directly to an expert windsurf travel advisor. However, as a rough guide we would summarise as follows:

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

The southwest have the best conditions. If you want an exquisite luxury hotel with access to the premier kitesurf and windsurf location with flat water and waves then the St Regis in Le Morne is outstanding. Alternative to the St Regis is either LUX Le Morne or Dinarobin which are both a 15-20 minute walk to the windsurf centre. If you don't mind a short drive it opens up a large amount of other properties, including apartments, in the surrounding area. Two properties that are worth a special mention are the Chamarel Retreat (a stunning eco lodge with incredible views over Le Morne) and the Outrigger Hotel in Bel Ombre (a luxury hotel at affordable prices which is only 15 minutes drive away).
