Mauritius

Postby Pin Head » Tue Jul 05, 2011 11:08 am

Any good this time of year.

I am a learner who can waterstart left and right just need more practice. Any good places for me?

I have heard that the west of the island is the best place.

Accomodation.

Any other tips!

Thank you

Was there this time last year for two weeks.
Stayed and kited at Le Morne at the south west corner of the island. Lagoon of approx 1km x 1km with max waist deep warm flat water. Most days approx 15-18 knots. Absolutely perfect for beginners or those practicing new moves etc. Also around the corner there are three large reef breaks with the famous 'one eye' wave. Lots of serious kiters out there. So the best of both worlds.

Stayed at the Indian Resort because my sons were getting lessons at Club Mistral which operated from the hotel beach (that may have changed). There are approx 4 schools operating in the lagoon.

Let me know if you need any further info.

2 years ago I've stayed in a villa (2 rooms + a huge balcony) in La Gaulette for 60 Euros, 4x4 included). There were cheaper single rooms as well. La Gaulette is ~4 km from the kite spot at Le Morne (Club Mistral).

I've found a car to be very useful. The island is well worth exploring.

I have bungalows in La Gaulette with swimming pool, fast wifi, and a lot of other extras too. For photos check out my site at www.marisa4sss.co.uk and they are going for €35.00 a day.
