BARBADOS KITESURFING HOLIDAYS
Kitesurf Holidays To Barbados
A kitesurf holiday to the island of Barbados is a great location for intermediate to advanced kitesurfers travelling with their partner or family. The Silver Sands beach area, on the easern coast, is the main kitesurfing zone in Barbados. This spot has stunning beaches and waves, but due to the large waves and shore break it is not recommended for beginners.
Planet Kitesurf offers a kitesurfing holiday right on the main beach in a luxury resort, or in a very large and beautifully appointed apartment nearby.
It is a good idea to take your own kitesurf equipment to this location as what is available can be very limited.

The Wind And Weather On Barbados
The wind varies between a constant cross-offshore or cross-onshore trade wind, which usually levels off between 12 and 20 knots. The best wind period is between December and March. Silversands is one of the best wave spots.
There are an abundance of jet ski companies, dive schools, paragliding businesses, bannana boat rides, and general watersports madness to get involved with. Away from the watersports, hiring a car is a must do, as you can get from one end of the island to the other in 1 hr 30 min. So there is no reason not to travel around the beautiful country, and visit the various attractions like the monkey sanctuary in the north, or visit the various surf breaks.
Nightlife On Barbados
Barbados has a great night life with a true Caribbean feel. The fish BBQ at Oistins is one to never miss, where you will find the freshest fish cooked to order infront of you, accompanied by local foods such as bread fruit, plantains, and a wedge of amazing macaroni pie.
St Lawrence Gap, or most commonly known as ‘The Gap’ has bars and restaurants of various description, and regularly hosts local live music. Just look out for the posters that spring up around town with the place and date.
