The Spots: Anse Vata bay: the paradise for foilers in a beautiful lagoon with islets Meridien Spot: THE Spot for the advanced rider: beautiful and ideally positioned for high jumps and tricks! A must see if you don't ride it! Aquareve, just beside, great for intermediate, foilers and wave riders! Still shallow blue water Ilot Maitre, accessible by taxi boat, this is a great spot for beginners, but also for all type of kitesurfer, inside the islet lagoon, you can navigate all day long without being bored of the landscape! Goeland Islet: crazy small lagoon with pure and pristine blue water, by taxi-boat on a half day or day trip! The wind is here 10 months per year, just avoid March (rainy) and June (no wind) The water is from 22deg from July to Sept, to 24 or more from october to May ! I recommend a 9sqm kite for 80% of the season, and a 12sqm for 20% (July/August). A 2mm short wetsuit is recommended in July and August
