The Windsurfing In Bel Ombre

The wind in Bel Ombre generally blows side to side-onshore from the left. The entire area is surrounded by a reef belt, very typical for Mauritius, providing super wave conditions outside the reef and perfectly flat water conditions inside. There are some coral patches within the lagoon, so for beginners, we recommend boots. There are some tides and currents that do affect the windsurfing conditions within the lagoon but these are nothing to worry about. The more Eastern the wind, the gustier the launching conditions.

Bel Ombre is divided into two areas: the wave spot and a huge standing range with shallow water. The standing range is ideal for beginners and encompasses about 700 m x 300m. Closer to the beach is a shallower area and beyond that deeper turquoise water that continues to the reef. Beyond the reef, you will be facing the open sea with waves for beginners and advanced windsurfers. Waves between 1 and 4 meters can be found here. As the centre here holds the exclusive right to use this spot, it is never crowded.

Other Activities In Bel Ombre

As the watersports centre is located right at the luxury hotels in Bel Ombre, there is a range of activities available to guests. These include a range of hotel inclusive activities such as SUPing, kayaking, pedal boats, snorkelling and tennis while the renowned Heritage Golf Club here boasts a 27-hole tropical golf complex with 18-hole championship course, a 9-hole Par 3 course, exceptional practice facilities, golf academy, clubhouse, restaurant, and a golf shop.

The watersports centre here can also arrange a number of other fantastic activities such as boat trips, swims with the dolphins, surfing and wakeboarding.
