Equipment is renewed regularly so to offer the safest and most enjoyable experience for the students to learn how to harness the wind.

Negros is a place mostly known for its fabulous diving, but still remains a hidden gem when it comes to water sports. Zamboanguita is the best place in Negros to learn to kitesurf. It is very near to Dumaguete, so it is easily accessible from other big towns in the Philippines. With its orientation, the wide beach gives safety for the beginners and a well-exposed flat bay for the advanced kitesurfers.

That’s the reason why Kite in Negros is set-up in a center of Zamboanguita. Having the possibility to ride from sunrise till the wind dies, at your doorstep, the comfort of this immaculate resort will provide a unique experience to any sea lovers. The regularity of the wind and the absence of the obstruction create a perfect location for kitesurfing and other water sports.

Kite spot

You are able to ride and kitesurf in Amihan or Habagat wind orientation. The spot in front of the kite school works perfectly during Habagat. The spot at the Cockpit is working well during Amihan as the northern wind blows directly side shore to the beach. To move to the cockpit, there are two choices, either by the sea or by the road. Each way takes two minutes!

Daily delicious breakfast is included in the package. Extra meals can be arranged at additional costs.

Casaroro waterfall hikes

Casaroro is not an average waterfall. It is massive. The water drops from 40 meters down to a pool in a roaring noise echoing in the narrow cliffs of the canyon.

To be able to witness this amazing natural exception you need to drive from Dumaguete, Dauin, or from Zamboanguita. You will need 350 steps to go down to the river and some short walks to finally arrive at the perfect spot.

Diving

Diving is one of the reasons why Dauin and Zamboanguita are so well known. The awesomeness of the deep blue sea and the diversity of the species that you can see, it makes diving in the area is a must-do for any visitors.
