Think stunning caribbean, chilled out vibe, awesome wind, white beaches, and crystal water, that's basically what you get with St Lucia. The beauty of the island makes it a typical honeymoon destination, whilst the beautiful clear waters, and reliable winds make it an awesome windsurf and kitesurf destination. Many of the hotels are great for families, with pools and kids clubs. Kids will also enjoy looking out for humpback whales and turtles, as well as the ruins at Pigeon Island National Park. For people looking for an adventurous holiday, they can hire an all-terrain vehicle and head through St Lucia's lush countryside for the ride of a lifetime! From St Lucia, you can sail down through the Grenadines, visiting all the best kite spots with Watersports Training. The next departure is in February 2012
Our Kitesurf centre is located at the Coconut Bay Resort, on the south side of the Island, Vieux Fort, where you will find Anse De Sables (Sandy Beach) the main kiting area in St Lucia. The area is really safe for all levels, as the wind blows cross-on, and is clear of rocks. If you have a car in St Lucia, you can travel to the north side of the island, where you will find other great kitesurfing spots, such as, Cas en Bas is on the Atlantic side of the island, which benefits from the constant trade winds. The bay is protected from an outer reef, meaning the water is always flat inside the bay, but with the swell breaking upwind outside the bay.
