Our location on Long Caye is one of the best kiteboarding locations in Belize for the experienced kitesurfing. We have focused on great improvements on the island with more kitesurfing opportunities with the addition of a kitesurf school featuring professional instruction and all new equipment. The island is situated on the reef separating the open sea from the calm water lagoon of the atoll, allowing kiters opportunities to enjoy both easy and rough water conditions. We have a nice beach launch site into the lagoon with plenty of space free from obstacles. In addition, our surf break is very kite friendly and immediately accessible off the front point of the island, and it normally sees a cross break wind that is perfect for setting up jumps. The open sea will provide unlimited reaches in large swells, while the lagoon is perfect for high speed, smooth water runs. Although the lagoon has many patch reef obstacles, there is plenty of room to avoid them and we commonly run out on 3 mile reaches.
Picture yourself on a private island, lost in the Caribbean. No modern conveniences. No schedules. No problems. Sound like a fantasy? Experience it yourself at our new adventure retreat in Belize! With a maximum of 22 guests on the island during any week, there are no problems with crowds in the sailing area. Ever.
Perched on the edge of the continental shelf, the island base lies on the slender ring of Glover’s Atoll, 35 miles off the mainland. In all, there are over 700 patch reefs brimming with the richest variety of marine life in the Caribbean. In recognition of the outstanding quality of the ecosystem, the atoll has been designated a National Marine Reserve and UNESCO World Heritage Site to protect it for future generations.
Perfect for beginners and intermediates, with varied conditions to challenge any experienced sailor. The average wind speed is 10-20 mph nearly every day, so although some days will be spent on the light wind gear skimming across the flats of the lagoon, others will find you on a 4.5 sail or smaller blasting on the swells or trying your luck in the surf.
