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 and paragliding businesses on the island. A variety of resorts also offer banana boat rides and general watersports. Barbados is a small island, therefore, renting a car is advisable. In fact, you can drive from one end of the island to the other in 1 hr 30 minutes. Driving your hire car is an excellent way to see all the islands attractions, such as the monkey sanctuary in the north, and all its beautiful beaches and surf breaks.
Nightlife On Barbados
Barbados has a great nightlife with a true Caribbean feel. The fish BBQ at Oistins is exceptionally good. Here you will be treated to the freshest fish cooked to order in front of you, accompanied by local foods, such as breadfruit, plantains, and a wedge of delicious macaroni pie.
St Lawrence Gap (The Gap) has a variety of bars and restaurants hosting local live music. Just look out for the posters that spring up around town with the place and date.
