ABOUT Poste Lafayette

Poste Lafayette is a small seaside village located in the North-East of Mauritius. Swept by strong and regular winds during the winter, the place is a very nice spot for windsurfers and kitesurfers.

The lagoon is quite big and very safe. No worries about leaving your skin on dry reef over there, but watch out for a few coral heads when the tide is low. Adventurous riders may test out some waves breaking in a handful of passes along the reef barrier. However, the passes (chanels in the reef to the deep sea) are also very dangerous places, we encourage people to avoid sailing close to them and try to have someone watching over you on the beach when sailing as a safety measure.

Despite ideal wind conditions, Poste Lafayette is generally far from being a crowded spot. Some riders will love having the lagoon for themselves, but keep in mind that there won’t be a lot of people helping you out in case of problems. The beach is very nice but also very exposed; you may find a lot of dry seaweed along the shoreline.

Poste Lafayette hosts a lot of “campements”, which are typical seaside bungalows in Mauritius. During wintertime, most of them are empty and some can be rented. Poste Lafayette sits right next to Bras d’Eau, a beautiful national park which includes the last coastal dry forests of the island, and also some of the last endemic species of Mauritius.
