Inside the lagoon left of the jetty of hotel Riu Le Morne. This wave breaks very nicely in a big swell, especially during high tide, but is not as dangerous, as inside the lagoon, waves and currents are rather harmless. It is suitable for beginners, but there are some corals underground and the spot works only in bigger swells safely from the beach with boat at the ready.
The small reef in front of the hotel Riu Le Morne:
One-eye. The world famous spot
Right in front of the St. Regis Mauritius Resort, One Eye is a really fast and tuby left, reserved exclusively to experts. It breaks on a really shallow coral reef with a lot of sea urchins, and sometimes serious current. Works best at high tide and with light offshore south-east to north-east winds. One eye is a symbol on the island, a wave respected by all local surfers, so if you want to surf there, you better be both good and tough at the peak. Great place for guests to take pictures of the pros facing the walls of water of One eye!
About 2 km out in front of the hotel Riu Le Morne, Manawa is another spot for more advanced and expert surfers. Compared to small swells elsewhere, this spot still picks up a lot more and offers even bigger waves. A very nice left breaking on a coral reef, but not as fast and tuby as One-eye, Manawa has a serious reputation too, and often requires a boat due to the strong currents you have to face to reach the wave itself.
Located about 20 km north of the hotel Riu Le Morne, Tamarin is a very popular left that first breaks on a reef, and then on a sandy bottom. It can become the longest ride you can conceive, but it needs quite a big swell to work properly.This break is also very good for beginners, as long as you stay close to the sandy beach (no current to pull you behind the wave).
