Planning a trip to Kitesurfing Lanka and wondering what to expect? we’ve got you covered. We understand that planning a trip can be overwhelming. From the best time to visit to what to pack, we’ve got all the practical information you need to make your trip a success.

First things first, let’s talk about the best time to visit Kitesurfing Lanka. The summer season runs from May to September, which is the peak season for kitesurfing in Sri Lanka. During this time, you can expect consistent winds ranging from 18 to 30 knots. If you’re looking to avoid the crowds, you may want to consider visiting during the shoulder season from February to April or the winter season from October to December. The seas are calmer during these months, providing excellent visibility and opportunities to spot a variety of marine life so its the perfect time to go diving or whale and dolphin watching.

Now, let’s talk about what to pack. You’ll want to bring your kitesurfing gear, but of course you can always rent gear from our kiteshop. You want to avoid lugging around your kite gear across the airport. We also recommend bringing sunscreen, a rash guard, and a hat to protect yourself from the sun.

When it comes to accommodations, Kitesurfing Lanka has a variety of options to suit every budget. From shared villas to private bungalows, there is something for everyone. If you’re looking for a bit more luxury, we recommend booking one of the beachfront villas. With stunning views of the ocean and easy access to the beach, it’s the perfect place to unwind after a day on the water.

Kitesurfing Lanka is known for its flat water and consistent winds, making it the ideal spot for beginners and advanced riders alike. The main Kalpitiya lagoon is perfect for learning, while the ocean offers more challenging conditions for those looking to push themselves. There are several other kite spots around Kalpitiya, each of them offering unique features.

If you’re looking for a break from kitesurfing, there are plenty of other activities to keep you busy. Take a kayaking ride through the inlets, go whale watching, or try your hand at fishing. For those looking for a bit of relaxation, indulge in a massage or yoga class at the on-site wellness center. You can also hit the gym – The BNKR to break a sweat or work up an appetite.


Last but not least, let’s talk about the food. Kitesurfing Lanka prides itself on its fresh, healthy, and delicious cuisine. The chefs use locally sourced ingredients to create a variety of dishes to suit all dietary needs. Be sure to try the Sri Lankan curry, it’s a must-try! We usually have an amazing spread on our BBQ Saturdays, and our occasional wood fired pizzas at the beach bar will make you fall in love!

In conclusion, Kitesurfing Lanka offers a unique and unforgettable experience for kitesurfers and travelers alike.
