Kitespot Description

Wind Direction:NW, SE

Best Months:
All year round

Conditions:
Fantastic place to learn to kite with large open areas. The water is warm in summer and always very clear. This massive flat water bay offers great kiting for flat water riders.

Pros & Cons:

There are lots of areas on the grass next to the lagoon. There is not much beach along the banks of the lagoon. The reserve area has been closed off to kitesurfers parking, but park further down the dirt road and carry your kit down to the waters edge.Don't be fooled by the sign that says road closed, you are allowed to walk on the road down to the lagoon area.
