THE BEST KITE SURFING EXPERIENCES ALL OVER THE WORLD
The sterling Greek city of Kos is absolutely perfect for anyone hoping to learn as much about kitesurfing as possible. There’s a great kitesurfing school for anyone hoping to learn and the gentle warm waters off the coast will ensure that you will always have a good time at this sunny island.
For those initiated in kite surfing, it is a hot spot on the Greek map: Prasonisi is the meeting point for lovers of extreme sports, but also a hidden paradise for those looking for the alternate side of Rhodes. The uniqueness of Prasonisi lies in the fact that depending on the season, it is an island or peninsula.
This easy to reach destination is Europe’s top spot for kitesurfing at any level, with 10km of beach, consistently strong and more than 300 days of sun a year, coupled with a great chilled vibe and fantastic Spanish food.
Praia Do Baleal, Portugal
Praia Do Baleal in Peniche is a pretty safe wave spot but reserved for intermediate and confirmed kiters. This beach is huge and surfers tend to gather at the end of the bay which leaves a large space to navigate. When it’s not too big, it’s a good spot to progress in the waves.
This place took kitesurfing to the mainstream when it hosted the first competition back in 1996. It’s still a top location, with warm temperatures, consistent winds and a cool party atmosphere away from the water.
This little sandy village situated in a National Park famous for its moving dunes has some seriously different vibes going on. You’ll find wind every day during the season and it’s one of the spots with the strongest wind along the Northern coast.
Nabq Bay, Egypt
Get ready to pick up some speed when you take the time to go kitesurfing at Nabq Bay in Egypt. The wind is steady and strong, so you shouldn’t have any trouble pulling off some slick moves as you glide across the water.
A trip to this easy-access fishing harbour is a true Moroccan experience for any visitor, but it’s the gently sloping 4km beach, protected from the big rollers by a small island, which makes it one of North Africa’s go-to spots for kitesurfing.
Eco Kite Lodge, Sri Lanka
You’ll need to make reservations to check out this beautiful kiteboarding resort, but if you want a chance to get a crash course in kitesurfing, then this remote location in the Sri Lankan wilderness might just be your best bet.
Kite Lodge, Kenya
Want to fully immerse yourself in this challenging, but exciting water sport? Book your room at Kenya’s Kite Lodge, where visitors can stay right on the beach and mere moments from the beautiful water.
Calamianes Islands, Philippines
If you want to mingle a first-rate kiteboarding vacation with some truly remote surroundings, then head to Calamianes Islands in the Philippines, which is only reachable by a plane ride and a boat ride.
Mui Ne, Vietnam
This palm-backed sandy beach on the South China Sea is Asia’s kitesurfing capital. It averages at least 12 knots of wind for almost two thirds of the year, with gentler summer southerlies and more consistent strong winter northerlies that reach up to 40 knots.
