Thanks to its temperate tropical climate, Mauritius is a real paradise for kitesurfing almost all year round. Accessible to riders of all levels, Mauritius and its 300 km of coastline offer incredible spots that you can discover during your stay on this magical island. A dream destination for freeride and freestyle lovers…
Le Morne, at the south-western tip of Mauritius, is recognized worldwide as one of the best watersport areas for board sports, with the One Eye spot regularly hosting international competitions.
Sheltered from the protective gaze of the Le Morne mountain, the transparent waters of the Le Morne peninsula are today probably the most popular place to surf in Mauritius. About half an hour south of Tamarin Bay, in the south-eastern tip of the island, Le Morne offers both flat lagoon conditions accessible to beginners and experienced surfers alike. For beginners, it’s best to test your luck on the west side of the peninsula, at what has become known as Kite Lagoon, due to the growing popularity of kite-surfers.
The One Eye surf spot at Le Morne is world-famous. Success due to its fast-left tube which takes the shape of an eye before crashing into the reef in shallow water. For the anecdote, one of the faces of the mountain of Le Morne, which has seven faces, has a huge hole that pierces the cliff from side to side. It looks like an eye in a Rastafari profile. Some say that the name of the One Eye spot comes from there.
The best time to practice this sport and discover the many lagoons of the island is from April to November. With trade winds present almost all year round, especially from May to November, you can explore the spot of Le Morne, world-famous for its waves, its beauty and its 300 days of wind per year.
