Kitesurfing Ile Maurice

Kitesurfing enthusiasts will love the beach at La Palmeraie. Set on a beautiful lagoon bordered by a white sandy beach, its unique location on Palmar Beach lends itself to excellent kiteboarding conditions offered by the trade winds that blow from the southeast and create a safe enclave.

For those of you that don’t know much about this fast growing extreme sport take the opportunity and learn. The Kite Surf Paradise Mauritius, arguably Mauritius’ best kite boarding school, is just a stone’s throw away from La Palmeraie. Their qualified professionals offer kiting lessons for all skill levels and the prices include all equipment. Hone your skills or take up something completely new – lessons cost about 210€ and last for 6 hours.


The best time for kitesurfing in Mauritius is from April until early December. Other activities on offer at La Palmeraie include diving and snorkeling, water skiing, kayaking, pedal boats, glass bottom boat trips and hobie cat adventures.

Golf on the Island

Avid golfers can explore different golf courses near La Palmeraie. The hotel has privileged access to three world class golf courses: the Links Golf Belle Mare and 18 hole Championship courses at Le Touessrok and the Four Seasons.

Alternative Mauritius Attractions

Looking for something different to do in Mauritius? Try these different Mauritius Attractions:

Zip Lining

Zip Lining – It’s as fast as it sounds when you say it out loud and you can do it in Mauritius. Nature aficionados will love it and it’s very similar to the canopy tours we have here in South Africa. Shop around for zip lining adventures in Mauritius when you get to the island.

Underwater Sea Walk

A long standing Mauritius attraction, the underwater sea walk is just that. Take a stroll on the sea floor (about 3-4m depth), and see the magnificent marine life of Mauritius in their natural habitat. It’s completely safe and highly recommended.

Underwater Scooter

Speed freaks fear not. If you’d prefer to ride a scooter on the seabed then look no further than an underwater scooter adventure in Mauritius. This is great for couples and you don’t need any diving experience to participate. As with other Mauritius attractions, shop around for the best deal.

SUP – Stand Up Paddling

Slightly more relaxed but still a great workout, Stand Up Paddling (or simply SUP) is fast becoming a favourite pastime among watermen the world over. Lessons are offered by the Kite Surf Paradise Mauritius school at the La Palmeraie Hotel.
