There are no established surf spots on the East coast because it is constantly battered by the easterly Trade Winds especially in winter season of the best swells. The surf spots are mainly in the West and South and a few in the North. Southern spots are also very windy but can work better during the summer (Nov-April). West coast spots often have offshore winds but do not get consistent swells. Spots are mostly reef tricky for beginners.
In short, Mauritius is far from ideal as a holiday destination if surfing is the main aim. It is much better for kitesurfing and windsurfing! Good surfing can be had if you happen to be here just the right time or if you staying for long periods.
