Anse la Raie, Mauritius » spot info

The spot in anse la raie

Almost around the entire north-east of Mauritius runs a reefbelt, which is up to almost 2.5 kilometers off the coast. This creates a vast lagoon that is indeed not shallow, but it creates a huge and safe flat water play area. In addition the constant wind is blowing at an ideal angle almost always side shore from the left to the coast. Since the beach sections are rather small and rarely in the north of the island, we train the Kitesurfers from either the 300-meter-wide , mostly knee-deep and sandy bay of Anse la Raie or from a boat in the lagoon.

The bay is hardly more than 5 minutes walk from the Sensimar Lagoon Hotel, where our center is located, and from the Paradise Cove Hotel. Guests staying in the Hotel Zilwa Attitude can be taken by shuttle to the ION CLUB Center.

Kitesurfers, who borrow or store material, also start from the bay of Anse la Raie. For takeoff and landing aid we have staff present in the bay. A highlight for ION CLUB guests who can kitesurf already will be the regularly organized Downwinder with support boat. These are offered on windless days with our SUP boards.

Wind and waves

Together with the spot in front of the Hotel Sensimar Lagoon, the bay of „Anse la Raie“ offers perfect conditions for beginners – no currents, no waves and the cross-onshore wind won’t let you drift. There is always a number of beginner equipment available for you.

In the lagoon the wind blows side-on to cross-onshore and between 3 and 6 Bft. At the outer reef small waves are building up. They are 0.5 to 2 meters high and smaller than in the south of the island. We offer excursions with guide and supervision. In case the waves in the north are too small for advanced waveriders we will also offer a transfer to the south.

The ION CLUB Center Anse la Raie is located on the grounds of the Sensimar Lagoon Hotel just a few minutes from the beach.
