Only for experienced surfers. Dangerous and powerful and tubular left. No winds required. Can pick small swells. Works best with southern swells. An error means a travel on the coral...

Yea, not that expensive. - hostels are everywhere, I have friends there so lodge was never a problem. Plance to paris - 500- to reunion 400... round trip 900 for me, but im gonna try taking a boat next time. I plan on living there it is an amazing island, with amazing surf.

you need balls - I really like this spot. The wave is powerful and break in few water so some sections can be very dangerous. But if you wake up early you can appreciate this paradise in a very good atmosphere and take short but powerful barrels. The ambiance is really different compare to the spot of "the left" st leu where some locals are fucking bastards. If you respect people and waiting for your priority, you ll just send a very good session.

Not that much - Firt, u don't need to book a room, there is hostel everywhere... and you can ask surfers to indicate u the places, or sleep rough on the beach left to boucan, it is a public place (free), with always some local campin',Then, to answer honnestly, it is not THE place for surfers, seldom very good waves, but usually, regular and mid-hollow sweels... then the flight ticket could ruin your hopes to ever get here, but try to land in Mauritius, and to surf out there too.
