Guide to Bahamas kiteboarding holidays

Dec 18, 2013 BY AWE365 Team

A Bahamas Kitesurfing holiday is about being in some of the most tranquil blue waters in the world. Conditions here are best from October through to June when winds are normally 17mph+. The later part of the season in April and May you will find the stronger winds and with this brings some good wave conditions.

As with most tropical spots the lagoons are protected by the reefs and cays ensuring that the water is flat and perfect for all riding levels. With good year round temperatures keeping the water at a bath like 25 degrees, you will only need your board shorts or bikinis.

The main airport on the capital island of Nassau will be your arrival airport and then transfers are available from here. Nassau is the most populated of the islands but there are great quieter kite locations on the other islands.

The Bahamas are located just 160 miles off the Florida coastline, so it does have a lot of influence from its large neighbouring country. The lifestyle here is suited to a family break just as much as it is to a couple’s holiday.

If you want to get away from the mainstream locations then a 1 hour flight south of Nassau is San Salvador. Here you will find unspoilt beaches with acres of open water for you to play in. If you are not on a budget then this is a trip well worth looking at organising on your Bahamas kitesurfing holiday.

Accommodation in the Bahamas is a mixture of rented apartments and luxury villas to all inclusive resorts with fine dining. If you are looking to Kite on Nassau then look for accommodation in the area of Mount Pleasant which is nearest to the Kite spots and suitably close to the Marina for day excursions just in case of any windless days on you Bahamas Kitesurfing holiday.
