Where to kitesurf in the Maldives

There are some spectacular kitesurfing destinations around the planet. Some are renowned for their excellent wind conditions. Others for the choice of luxury accommodation or excellent kite schools. But there is one kitesurfing option that offers all of the above and more.

The Maldives boasts some incredible luxury resorts with a wide range of activities for all members of the family. And because the kitesurfing season is outside of the main tourism peak, you can find great deals even in the most high-end hotels.

The Maldives is home to some of the most beautiful islands on earth, surrounded by warm, turquoise water and white sandy beaches. And the regular winds blowing throughout the season and quiet waters all make for an idyllic kitesurfing destination.
