Anse La Raie Kite Spot 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.
