Mauritius - Le Morne, Indian Ocean & SE Asia

Mauritius offers windsurfing, kitesurfing and diving holidays in Le Morne, an exotic, island paradise of volcanic pinnacles and verdant valleys set amidst the Indian Ocean. All over the island the plantations, with gentle waves of swaying sugar cane, dominate the landscape. The multi-cultural capital, Port Louis, is a trading point for exotic fruit, vegetables and spices as well as a duty free shopping & commercial centre. Pure tradewinds blow year round across magnificent turquoise, flatwater lagoons. Awesome waves on the coral reefs, that protect the perfect, idyllic beaches of Le Morne in the south east, make this a mecca for sailors and kiters alike.
 

Sailing Spot & Conditions
Le Morne, in the south west corner of Mauritius has superb conditions with warm water and reliable, consistent winds, flat water lagoons and waves. It is the accessibility for every conceivable discipline in one spot that makes it unique. The predominant wind is the south east trade wind, strongest from May to November and blowing for over 300 days a year above Force 4. At Le Morne the direction is cross, cross onshore in the more expert areas and almost onshore in the beginners and training areas. Directly in front of the launch is a glorious flatwater lagoon, extending out for about 800m to the reef break.There are also surfing and SUP available with excursions available from the centre. A second lagoon, to the east, runs for over a mile for safe, kitesurfing training in a sheltered, flat water environment. The wind is softer in this area due to the protection of the coast line upwind and the buffer action of the rock faces of Le Morne. Famous for its variety of wave spots with World Class Wave sailors competing from Le Morne. Caution must be taken when sailing on the outside the offshore reef as the current is extremely strong taking anybody with problems away from Le Morne. Safety cover is provided for clients renting or taking instruction at the centre.


Culture & Activities
Most guests head to Le Morne to enjoy the stunning beaches, watersports and all the facilities of their hotel in this spectacular location. However, it is worth venturing out to see the beautiful countryside or take an excursion. The Port capital of St Louis, with it's duty free shops and local markets, is only an hour away by car. On the way you will see the mix of sugar cane plantations. Set on the low lying hills they lead down to traditional villages built along the coast line. An island sightseeing tour will show you the best sights in a day including the Black River national park or trekking on the mountain of Le Morne Brabant. Locally you can enjoy boat trips, with a picnic and swimming with dolphins if you are lucky. Other activities include beach BBQs, snorkelling, diving, fishing, surfing, SUP and welcome cocktail party at the windsurf and kitesurf centre. Close by you can play at the 18 hole 72 par international golf course, just a short 5 minute taxi ride from your hotel.
