If it looks like the wind is not quite there yet, you can sign up at the ION CLUB for the half-day surf trip to Small Reef. You will be back around 11:30 to start the next part of your day.
The wind has most likely picked up in the last few hours and is now getting up to at least 20 knots of wind speed. As the water rises, it usually picks up more and more, which gives you a good idea of your choice of equipment for windsurfing or kitesurfing.
After a few tacks you’ll be cruising up to the sandbar and enjoying freedom and remoteness, combined with a buttery soft water surface. On the way back you can practice a few caved jibes and with a little luck observe rays and sea turtles in their natural habitat.
Boosted by a tasty and healthy snack at one of the numerous food trucks that provide for your physical well-being at the spot, you start into the next adventure.

Finally, the sun sets on the beach, you grab a cool drink and watch the whales jump around off One Eye. The blazing red ball sinks into the sea and you head back to Le Morne, where you end your day with live music over pizza at Ocean Vagabond.
Following the motto “Eat, Sleep, Repeat”, this day will not be the only perfect day you experience on the sunny island.
