The only place that is crazy about kiting. We are located at a very special spot at the entrance of the MIDA CREEK national park.
A combination of consistent winds and five kilometers long stretch of white sandy beach makes Watamu an ideal kitesurfing spot either for beginners or for experienced kiters.
There are two wind seasons in Watamu: the Kaskazi season from December to May, when the winds blow from north east at about 20-25 knots, starting early in the morning.
And the Kuzi season (June – September), the windiest time of the year. During the Kuzi season, the wind blows from south-east at least 25 knots and sometimes reaches and exceeds 30 knots. With Kenya being at the level of the Equator, these winds tend to be extremely consistent. The fact that the wind blows across onshore makes the place almost an example kitesurfing destination.
We offer beautiful nature, comfort, and a direct link to all the special kite spots around Watamu. And if the wind doesn’t blow (that doesn’t happen often) then you can go diving, party or relax on a Dhow-trip, go on a safari and soon also go wakeboarding.
