WHEN IS THE BEST PERIOD TO PLAN YOUR KITESURF HOLIDAYS IN MAURITIUS?
The ideal period to practice this sliding sport would be during the southern winter because the wind is stronger, but still accessible the rest of the year if you are equipped with a foil. Indeed, in Mauritius, the weaker wind conditions in summer are a treat for seasoned foilers.
The kitesurfing season in Mauritius starts in April and ends around mid-November. This period is famous for its favorable wind blowing between 15 and 25 knots. An amazing time for a kitesurfing experience in the turquoise lagoon of Mauritius!
