Mauritius has always been one of those destinations to just take the family and lie on the beach or next to the pool with a cocktail in hand. However, True Blue has now changed that perception and we can now offer you all of that plus waves!
No long flights, no missions, Mauritius is the perfect holiday choice for everyone. With a variety of waves on offer, you can pick and choose the area you want to stay in.
There are generally only a few surfers/locals on it in the early morning and late afternoons in the week, but most of the day it will go unsurfed, or surfed by just one or two fellow travellers. Weekends can be busier with up to 10 guys in the water at times. One Eyes Right will normally have half that number and probably no locals, so it can be a great option.
The locals are not the friendliest, so show respect, but they are not there most of the time during the week.
SOUTH WEST MAURITIUS – In the south western region, is the world class left hand reef ONE EYE. This hollow left hander cooks year round with recommended travel between April to October. The wave is best known for the left, but the right hander opposite can also be a fun and a hollow alternative. Both are super consistent and very rarely crowded. They work well in the south winds that blow cross offshore 80% of the time.
