One of the first Caribbean islands to catch the kitesurfing bug, Barbados’s position on the fringes of the Atlantic made it a fairly logical conclusion to ride there. The wind blows constantly and the miles of stunning tropical beaches make Barbados kitesurfing holidays almost perfect in every way.
Many people regard the beaches in Barbados as some of the best for kitesurfing anywhere in the world. Travel from the end of November to the end of June to experience the best conditions on the island.
The real peak period is considered to be between December and February, as this is when the winds are at their strongest. These few months are the period of the year when the cooling trade winds give the most consistent conditions for kitesurfing but you can usually find somewhere to ride at any time of year.
Expect to find warm and sunny conditions whatever time of year you visit. Daytime temperatures are usually between 25 and 29 degrees and with trade winds pushing 25 knots, it’s no surprise that Barbados kitesurfing holidays are considered some of the most desirable in the world.
The three main kitesurfing beaches that you really need to check out are Silver Sands, Silver Rock and Oistins Bay, although there are plenty of other spots to discover too. For more advanced riders, Silver Sands is widely regarded as one of the best spots in the whole Caribbean.
Long stretches of white and pink sand, and a traditional Bajan warm welcome add to the experience on Barbados kitesurfing holidays, creating an unforgettable experience that you’ll definitely want to repeat. Barbados is an extraordinary island where you can ride to the sounds of Calypso and Soca music, enjoy incredible conditions and marvel at the spectacular beauty of the Caribbean.
