If you like to surf, then you will enjoy the famous "Santosha Wave". The area was known as Santosha Bay (you'll still find the word 'Santosha' scribbled on a few buildings in faded paint) and offers wave hunters some of the best surfing on the planet. Before the bay earned the name Santosha, locals refused to give the beach a moniker because they didn't want outsiders to discover their cache of surfable seas!
Santosha Bay now called Tamarin Bay was discovered by a wider audience and immortalised after the release of the classic surf documentary "Forgotten Island of Santosha" by Larry and Roger Yates in 1974. Tamarin has two world-renowned surfing spots: ‘Dal’ on its left (south) and ‘Black Stone’ on the right (north) of the bay.
Dolphins are often found close to Tamarin Bay. Both Spinners and Bottlenose dolphins are usually seen playing early in the morning in the bay before going back to the open sea. Various boat companies offer trips to watch and swim with dolphins in the mornings.
You can play golf on the championship 18-hole, par 72 course designed by Rodney Wright which combines technical challenges with sweeping views over the stunning Rempart Mountain and Tamarin Bay.
To guarantee your enjoyment, the golf offers only the highest quality infrastructure and services. These include a practice area, changing rooms with lockers and showers, a bar and restaurant, a pro shop, an academy offering the services of a PGA pro and much more.

Tamarin and Black River
Tamarin and Black River were once simple villages inhabited by locals and fishermen, but today they are quite different. Although it has been transformed by many luxury villas, shopping centres and restaurants, Tamarin Bay remains a popular surfing spot, with a long left-hand reef break and 10-foot swells.
Part of the cultural landscape, the salt pans of Tamarin are a unique place to visit. Due to the dry conditions of the area, Tamarin is the ideal place for salt making. Simply stop your car on the side of the road and take a look!
The bay of Black River is teaming with deep-sea fishing boats, skippered by professional fishermen who have given their lives to the sea. Try your hand at fishing and see if you’re lucky enough to catch some marlin or tuna.
Martello Tower at La Preneuse
The Martello Tower at La Preneuse was built by the British between 1810 and 1846 to protect them against their sworn enemy, the French navy. Since being restored in 1999, the tower is now accessible for guided tours.
If you have some time to spare, take a dip in the sea at La Preneuse. The scenery is dominated by the beautiful Black River mountain range and the unmistakable shape of the Le Morne mountain that towers over the transparent lagoon below. Be careful of the strong current!
Black River Gorges National Park
One of the main “green” attractions is the Black River Gorges National Park which extends over 16,680 acres and provides a haven to highly endangered native plants and animals. It plays home to around 311 species of native and endemic flowering plants and nine species of birds that can only be found in Mauritius.
You can walk along with several dedicated trails inside the gorges itself and can even hike up to the plateau. Make sure you wear the right shoes and clothing if you want to attempt a hike, and take your food and drinks and other supplies along with you, as there are no shops or medical support within the park.
Case Noyale and La Gaulette
In these small fishing villages, you can find cheap rooms, apartments and guesthouses to stay in, which is great for kitesurfers on a budget. What better way to discover and appreciate how the locals live, work and play! From there you can drive up to the plateau and see the exquisite views from Chamarel and other tourist sites. You can also take a boat ride to Ile aux Bénitiers or, for the more adventurous, go kitesurfing at Le Morne.
Ile aux Bénitiers
Surrounded by turquoise sea, this island is set in a lagoon near Le Morne, where it is safe to go swimming and snorkelling. You can reach the island of Bénitiers using the local fishermen’s boats at Case Noyale and La Gaulette, or by catamarans and speedboats from Le Morne, Black River, or even further from Flic en Flac and the North. This small island is completely flat and measures just 2 kilometres by 500 metres, so you can easily explore it! The boat trip usually includes a barbeque and drinks on the island.
Le Morne Brabant
Some of the most beautiful hotels and golf courses are found at Le Morne. The oldest ones were established with the arrival of the first tourists on the island and have an authentic hostelry culture. There is something for everyone; whether you prefer to walk along the kilometres of white sandy beaches, actively take part in sea sports, or simply want to lounge around and rest. The southern part of Le Morne is ‘The Place’ to try kitesurfing, windsurfing and surfing in the strong and steady south-east trade winds that gain momentum after crossing the high mountains of the Black River Gorges.
