Guide to Guadeloupe kiteboarding holidays

Jul 22, 2013 BY AWE365 Team

Like many other kitesurfing destinations in the Caribbean, Guadeloupe is simply stunning. However, with ideal wind and water conditions Guadeloupe kitesurfing holidays still stand out, even in this incredible region.


The island is home to some incredible lagoons and characterised by the brilliant and bright colours of plants and animal life. It’s hard to imagine a more incredible backdrop for some serious Caribbean kitesurfing action.

One of the larger Caribbean islands, there are two very distinct sides to Guadeloupe, respectively called Grande Terre and Basse Terre. The former has more reliable winds but on their day, both are exceptional spots. And, in the event of no wind, there are some much worse places to spend the day exploring.

Most Guadeloupe kitesurfing holidays start from Gosier or St Francois and take in La Desirade, Les Saintes and Marie Galante along the way. The sheer variety of kitesurfing spots is what most people notice, with glassy lagoons, big swells and everything in between.

There’s wave riding here for all levels and for those of you that also love a spot of surfing, you won’t be disappointed on Guadeloupe.

The French heritage of the island and Creole language make this a unique island, even in the culturally rich Caribbean. Breath taking landscapes and incredible conditions make it an ideal place to get the adrenaline racing and your camera snapping away.

With local guides giving you the best insider information and taking you to the best spots around the island, a guided kitesurfing tour of Guadeloupe is strongly recommended. It’s such a magnificent spot that even the local surfers are friendly to visitors, something which doesn’t always happen in other destinations.

So, for a Caribbean adventure with a unique French flavour, check out Guadeloupe kitesurfing holidays for your next trip.
