Kiteboarding / Kitesurfing in Watamu Beach, Malindi, Coast Province Kenya

Wind Factor:
16-25 Knots
Waves:
2-3m/6-9ft
Watamu Beach is located at 120 km/74 mi in the north of Mombasa and 28 km/17 mi in the south of Malindi, the nearest big town. The shoreline of this area consists of white sandy beach and offshore corals forming three bays, namely Watamu bay, Turtle bay and Blue Lagoon. The bay is protected by a coral reef almost 0.5 km/546.81 yd off the shore.

Not only is there great reliable winds most through the year, Watamu boasts uncrowded kitesurfing space making it a worthwhile experience for both the novice and the expert.

The spot offers 300 days of good wind a year with constant cross-shore winds. Best time to go kite surfing here is from January through to May and July through to September with winds howling between 16-25 knots.

June, July and August have the strongest winds giving the advanced practitioner an opportunity to explore the reef with swells between 2-3 m/6-9 ft. Warm water throughout the year allows for marvelous wave riding and no need for wet suits, just don’t forget your sunscreen cream due to the heat.
