Anse La Raie kite spot in

Africa kitesurf spot in Mauritius

Anse La Raie is getting more popular as Mauritius gets explored further and people venture away from the well known spots in Le Morne. Offering a huge lagoon thanks to the barrier reef 2.5km offshore, this is a great spot for anyone not comfortable kitesurfing in the waves, or who wants flat water to practice their latest and greatest freestyle tricks. There are a couple of wave spots breaking over the reef here, which are nice to ride but the reef is shallow so better left to those with more kitesurfing experience!

Mauritius has been a popular kitesurfing and honeymoon destination for years now, so there are various options for all your kitesurfing needs, just be prepared that the prices can be a little on the higher side when compared to some other island destinations. It’s also less of a solo traveller destination, and tends to attract more families, groups and honeymooners, so bear that in mind.

Kitesurfing wind conditions in Calodyne

Kitesurfing is possible year round in Mauritius, but if you really want to make sure you give yourself the best chance for wind, then June to September is the most reliable time for over 20 knots. Other than that it’s a 50/50 gamble at other times of year (which is still pretty good compared to some other kite spots!). The water on the inside of the reef is pretty flat to a little choppy depending on where exactly you kitesurf, and you’ll have some waves breaking over the reef. Just watch out for the occasional rocky shallow patch, but since the water is crystal clear they are easy enough to avoid. Beginners can learn here, and the local schools generally teach from a boat as the water is too deep to stand in a lot of the lagoon area.

The wind generally picks up around 10am and blows until sunset, but can be difficult to predict on Mauritius, so checking with the local kite schools is a good idea if you are unsure. It’s the kind of place you just have to wake up and look out the window to see if it’s good, but generally if the sky is clear then the wind is going to pick up! Temperature ...
