Le Morne Peninsula is one of the most captivating and seductive addresses for the world's elite kite surf aficionado. The spot has an endless and shallow turquoise lagoon and wind all year round. Considered a paradise for kitesurfers and windsurfers, the spots have perfect conditions allowing all levels of kitesurfers to experience a great time.

Expert wave riders may adventure to the One Eye world-famous waves whereas independent kitesurfers will enjoy the small reef Manawa and Chameaux spots of Le Morne. The wind blows mostly side to (slightly) side offshore and can have strong currents which make this lagoon suitable for intermediate to advanced level kitesurfers.

A huge flat water kite lagoon can be found at the foot of the Brabant Mountain. With its waist-deep water and onshore winds, this lagoon is perfect for learning, improving, gaining confidence, independence and freestyle maneuvers.

In general, the trade winds are blowing all year round from the South East which blesses Le Morne with around 300 windy days a year. During the Mauritian summer (November to April), the wind is likely to be a bit lighter. In the winter (May to October), the trade wind speed is between 18 and 35 knots. The wind usually blows all day long although some mornings it may be somewhat lighter. The tide cycles of approximately six hours can have a great effect on the water levels which make the spot sometimes temporarily too shallow to go out for kitesurfing.

The St. Regis Mauritius Resort is located at the windless side of the peninsula which makes it the ideal location for non-wind-seeking guests and at the same time is footsteps away from the world-class kite surf spot known as ‘One Eye’. With the common wind direction at Le Morne, kitesurfing and windsurfing are best at the corner of the resort, around 5 – 10 minutes away from the Manor House and the Watersports Centre. Advanced and intermediate kite surfers staying at the resort with their own equipment should not hesitate to request the rooms that are closest to the spot upon reservation (subject to availability).

The resort features the world's first ION CLUB Prestige kitesurf club where the transition from guest’s room to the kitesurf spot is made seamless. ION CLUB Prestige offers a tailor-made service to the resort's kite surfers from the rental of first class equipment, a personalised tuition program, storage of equipment or local insider’s advice.

Located at the Watersports Centre, the ION CLUB Prestige is open 7 days a week from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM. For any further information or for reservations please contact the ION CLUB Prestige by email at

The ION CLUB Prestige also offers high-level kitesurfers with their own equipment, private lessons and supervision in the more extreme parts of the spot (like One Eye) after a warm-up session and level check at Manawa. Safety is a top priority, and guests are therefore requested to kindly acknowledge on-site team's instructions at any time, as the current, tides and waves may be dangerous depending on the everyday changing conditions.

Kitesurfers having reached the minimum level of consistently upwind riding can rent equipment and enjoy the luxury of the Prestige rental service. Kitesurf aficionados should not miss the opportunity to ride on one of the world’s best sites for kitesurfing on the waves of One Eye. One Eye is fast, hollow and unforgiving and therefore only suitable for the most advanced wave riders.

Private lessons for beginners or intermediate kite surfers are done by IKO instructors.
