If Kite-Surfing is on your to-do list then Kalpitiya must be the destination to do it!

This is the ideal time for kite-surfing in Kalpitiya, as wind and surf conditions are perfect during the months of May to September. All you need is a little wind and a relatively calm sea to nudge you on your way. The two popular kite-surfing stretches are Wellai Island, and the other a sandy area on the west end of the Kalpitiya Lagoon.
Where can I hire a jet ski?
