THE ACTIVITIES

Kalpitiya, the Kitesurfing destiny in Sri Lanka

Kalpitiya is definitely the best place for kitesurfing in Sri Lanka and one of the best destinations in the world for this sport. The village of Kalpitiya is located on the shores of the Indian Ocean and the northernmost point of the peninsula of Kalpitiya, with strong winds during the months from May to October and from December to March.

 

Kalpitiya lagoon with flat waters, is ideal for beginners and freestyle enthusiasts. On the other hand, the Indian Ocean, separated from the lake by a small strip of beach, it’s the best choice to navigate between waves with endless winds and sublime landscapes.

We offer a personalized rental service and in the event it is not windy and you can not enjoy kitesurfing, we are not going to charge you for it! Kitesurfing instruction is also available, do not hesitate to contact us if you need kitesurfing lessons.

Kalpitiya kitesurfing spots

Kalpitiya is a destination for Kitesurfers that’s growing really fast, and it’s just that this place gets everyone’s attention. Although more and more people come to do some kitsurfing every day, mass tourism has not yet arrived and the area is still to be developed in terms of tourism, making it a destination with a special beauty and with many kitesurfing spots to be discovered yet!

The main attraction for kitesurfing in Kalpitiya is the flat and shallow water of the lagoons in the surrounding areas, as the Puttalam Lagoon, the Kalpitiya Lagoon or the Kappaladi Lagoon. There are many islands on the north of Kalpitiya too, with perfect spots for kitesurfing in flat waters, as Vella Island.

 

Furthermore, the Indian Ocean is also a perfect spot for wave riders from May to October. And it’s just that there are many places for kitesurfing in Kalpitiya!

 

The small lagoon of Kappaladi is located in a very beautiful area only 20 km south of the town of Kalpitiya. Either the flat and shallow water of the lagoon and the wind conditions make this place a very good kitesurfing spot for learning and for freestyle.

The Kalpitiya Lagoon, the most known spot and much bigger than the Kappaladi lagoon, is located very near to the town of Kalpitiya. This lagoon, located also in a very unique and safe environment, it is where the main kitesurfings schools are located.

In the vast Puttalam lagoon there are no kitesurfing schools yet, but the constant wind, the subliminal landscape and the uniqueness of the place makes this spot very special and one of the best places for kitesurfing in Kalpitiya.

 

Besides the lagoons of Kalpitiya, Puttalam and Kappaladi, which all of them are flat water, the best kite spots are located on the islands north of Kalpitiya, Vella Island being the best! Vella Island is a tiny island that has sea on one side and the flat water of the lagoon on the other. When it is windy, the freestyle conditions in this place are perfect.

 

However, Vella is not the right kite spot for someone learning, specially in the season from May to October, when the wind is offshore in the lagoon. This island is about 50 minutes by boat from Kalpitiya and it is possible to do a round trip in a single day.

For those who love kitesurfing in the sea, another place worth to mention is the Donkey Point, a cape located about 10 km south of the town of Kalpitiya, and it is the spot often chosen by people looking to navigate between the waves of the Indian Ocean.

 

Diving adventures in Kalpitiya

Kalpitiya is also one of the best areas of Sri Lanka for diving during the months from November to April. The reef has great biodiversity and a lot of places yet to be discovered and where you can see a lot of beautiful marine fauna such as butterfly fish, parrot fish or blacktip sharks. The reef covers about 307 square kilometers and is ideal for novice divers. In addition, during these months, in the waters of Kalpitiya also you can sight whales and dolphins.
