Kitesurfing holidays in Philippines will lead you to discover scenic beaches, magnificent lakes, breathtaking caves, world-class marine reserves and alluring kitesurf sites. The Philippines is the third largest English speaking country in the world. It has a rich history combining Asian, European, and American influences. Its 36,289 kilometers of coastline makes it the country with the 5th longest coastline in the world. The steady 12-30 knot winds and warm weather create ideal sailing conditions. The tropical seas and consistent winds of the Philippines make the country a paradise for kitesurfing. In Boracay the water is always warm and the lagoon is shallow enough to stand in most places. Itís perfect for beginner to extreme kitesurfers looking for perfect mixture of sun, sea and surf. An offshore coral reef protects it from the onshore waves and swells, so beginners can start inside and experts can go out.
Do ask your travel health expert (e.g. GP, practice nurse or travel clinic) to provide you with up to date information and vaccines to ensure your travels are safe and enjoyable.
Bring light and casual clothing like cotton or linen - but remember that you must cover up in public places. It is also advised to cover up in the evenings to avoid mosquito bites. Sun protection is absolutely essential. It is recommended that you drink bottled water.
It is vital to ensure that all members of your party have adequate health and travel insurance cover, which not only includes cover for holiday cancelation and loss of baggage but also provides adequate medical cover including cover for any ‘higher risk’ activities you are likely to take part in.
You will need to ensure you have correct documentation for your holiday including a full passport valid for the minimum period beyond your planned return date. You may also require a visa.
Citizens of most countries who are travelling to the Philippines for business and tourism purposes are allowed to enter the Philippines without visas for a stay not exceeding twenty-one days, provided they hold valid tickets for their return journey to port of origin or next port of destination and their passports valid for a period of at least six months beyond the contemplated period of stay.
