South Africa has a rich variety of landscapes including deserts, wetlands, grasslands, bush, subtropical forests, mountains and escarpments and is even home to the only one of six floral kingdoms to be contained in a single country. South Africa is famous for its production of wine and is said to be home to the longest wine route in the world. South Africa can also boast having the best of the best in a variety of things - they have the largest themed resort hotel in the world, are home to the world's most luxurious train, have the highest commercial bungee jump on the planet, have discovered some of the oldest remains of modern humans and the largest brewing company in the world can be found in South Africa!

Cape Town is a kitesurfing holiday destination that ticks all the boxes. The wind conditions in and around Cape Town are very reliable with wind speeds usually between 20-30 knots with the strongest wind coming between 2 and 6 in the evenings. South Africa's best wind is present during the summer period from November through to February. The coastline in and around the Cape Town area is home to many beaches that do not only boast fantastic kitesurfing conditions, but simply breathtaking natural beauty too.

But there is more to Cape Town than just kitesurfing. Whether you are looking to unwind, explore or be entertained in your time away from the surf, Cape Town and what lies beyond has plenty of alternative activities for those rare non-windy days and for the non-surfing partners and family.

Langebaan is an idyllic little seaside town on the South African West Coast. It is located at the edge of the tranquil Langebaan lagoon, 100km north of Cape Town. Founded in 1922, this historical town was once a whaling station and it has now been transformed into a holiday destination on the West Coast. It is a mecca for nature lovers and water sports enthusiasts. The lagoon is part of a protected area, the West Coast National Park - a world-renowned birding spot with migratory birds from as far as Russia stopping here annually.

The jewel of the West Coast towns, Langebaan will leave you with memories of a startling blue sea, acres of spring flowers and the enticing smell of fish ‘braais’ (barbeques). Sunsets on the west-facing coast are legendary and you’ll experience plenty of enchanting moments. We are sure you will return again and again to this tranquil, magnificently beautiful place.

During the South African summer months, from November to April Langebaan is on the most wind sure location on the Planet. The climate at this time of year is perfect with temperatures in the high 20s. The lagoon offers a huge flat water area, with many shallow sections, making this an ideal beginner or improver destination. Most of the Lagoon is surrounded by a nature reserve making for stunning views from the water back across the surrounding area.

Other compelling reasons to consider a holiday to Langebaan is the amazing and very cheap eating out, the world-class service (and always with a genuine smile), the huge range of off-water activities, and incredible value for money we enjoy with the relatively strong Pound.

It is best to have a car in Langebaan so as part of your holiday quote we would normally include this. There are also lots of add-on options for a holiday to Langebaan to include extra nights in Cape Town, wildlife safaris or even combine your stay in South Africa with a visit to Mauritius! Please call and speak to an expert advisor so we can put together the right trip for your budget, duration and specific requirements.

This is South Africas hidden jewel for kitesurfing! The lagoon is protected by a sandbar from the sea creating butter flat water with the prevailing SE or E winds. There is a large deepwater area fro foiling, as well as a huge shallow water area for beginners; this is a truly amazing location. This is one of the easiest and best places in the world to learn to kitesurf or learn to kitefoil !

Witsand is small village in a remote location, so outside of kitesurfing, there are just a couple of restaurants and some basic amenities. If you are taking a non-kiter with you there are wind protected areas on the beautiful beach unless the wind switched westerly, in which can there is no such place to sit on the beach.

As Witesand is a based 3 hours drive East from Cape Town along the stunning Garden Route, it can work really well in combination with a Garden Route tour finished up, or starting in, the bigger kitesurf resort of Langebaan.
