We (my wife and 1 year little girl) stayed in La Gaulette and kited in Le Morne in March 2014.La Gaulette
I would sincerely recommend to stay in Happy Days Guest House appartement.
These apartments are brand news and well designed. Rooms are big and balcony with an amazing view (+ Aircon).
Kitchen is shared between people but this is nice as every body there are surfers, kiters, windsurfers. Excellent atmosphere : )
Jean-Pierre, the owner is an ex-professional surfer. This guy is awesome and so nice. You can ask him for a pick-up rental at good price. Supermarket is 1 minute drive.http://happydaysguesthousemauritius.blogspot.frLe Morne spot
Intro : I am a 8 years experienced kiter. I love riding waves and free riding. I weight 74kgs and have North Rebel 6 and 9m2
When the wind is forecasted ESE - SE on wind guru, it is really more than that from 12pm to 5pm.
Example : when you have 10-11 knots SE, one day I used my 6m2 kite as the wind was 20 knots.
I did a holidays movie:https://vimeo.com/90366517Club Mistral
Those guys are experts and so nice.
Just go there to have explanations on the spot.
They can rescue you for free depending on the pass conditions.
It is always free for you and for your equipment it is in between 50 and 100 euros.
Alert them when you want to go on Manawa, OneEye etc and they will tell you OK or NOK and even find you a friend to go with !!!Lagoon
is great especially for the amazing view that you have on the mountains. A bit crowdy ...
Can be dangerous as it is a onshore wind (ESE - SE) and beginners are frightening !
Water is just too hot there ; )Little reef
Excellent wave, not as little as it should be.
I good days, can be 2 meters high.
Safe, no issue, no corals just sand and water.
The best wave to start withManawa
Amazing wave, impressive as it is big and very far from the coast (10 minutes kiting) but very smooth and not dangerous as you have 2 meters deepness on the reef. Just dangerous if your kites falls in the water as you are in the pass where the current is VERY STRONG.
I rode Manawa 3 days (never alone and alerted the Club Mistral).
1st day. Small (and sunny day): 1-1.5 meters high. Very easy and wonderful.
2nd day. Cloudy day, 2-3 meters high. Awesome conditions even if it is a bit scary as the noise of the wave is unique when it breaks on the reef: )
3rd day. I just went there as the waves where too big (5 meters ?) : (Platin rouge
Good alternative for manawa when it is too big. Be careful as it does not work at low tide.One Eye, Chameaux
Just look, take pictures and movies or as Club Mistral to go with you.
For experts / pro-riders. Deepness is in between 0.3m - 1m with sharp corals. You touch it you are burnt.
Nina from club mistral and his boy friend are riding the wave every day : incredible
Enjoy your stay. Once you go there, you want to go again for sure.
Best spot in the world for me
