Well-known for the wave of "Tamarin", Mauritius is another indian ocean surf paradise. The main surf spots in Mauritius are concentrated on the south and south west side of the island.

The swell size on Mauritius is generally about 1 m smaller than that on Reunion, this being attributed to the less steep coral reef drop-offs, and the fact that Reunion blocks off the swells moving in a north easterly direction from the Southern Oceans. The best months for surfing are between April and September.
