Location

Margarita Village is located at the Setthawadiya neighborhood, between Kalpitiya town and the main spot for kitesurfing. It is just five minutes away from the beach and from the main town. From Margarita Villa, you will also be very close to many interesting places, such as the fish markets, the Dutch fort, or the historical church.

Kalpitiya is definitely the best place for kitesurfing in Sri Lanka and one of the best destinations in the world for this sport. The village of Kalpitiya is located on the shores of the Indian Ocean and the northernmost point of the Peninsula of Kalpitiya with strong winds during the wind seasons, from May to October and from December to March.

Kalpitiya Lagoon, with flat waters, is ideal for beginners and freestyle enthusiasts. Also, the Indian Ocean, which is separated from the lake by a small strip of the beach, makes this lagoon the best choice to navigate between the waves with endless winds and sublime landscapes.

Actually, Kalpitiya is a paradise for lovers of kitesurfing. In addition, the natural, unspoiled environment makes this a unique place in the world for kitesurfing. If you are also passionate about adventure, if you want to know about the culture of Sri Lanka and its people and want new experiences, you cannot miss this idyllic place.

Kalpitiya is a destination for kitesurfers that is growing very fast since this is the place you can find the best kitesurfing spots in Sri Lanka. Although more and more people come for kitesurfing on a daily basis, mass tourism has not yet arrived and the area is still to be developed in terms of tourism; making it a destination with a special beauty and with many kitesurfing spots yet to be discovered!

The main attraction of Kalpitiya is the flat and shallow waters of the lagoons in the surrounding areas of Kalpitiya, such as the Puttalam Lagoon, the Kalpitiya Lagoon, or the Kappaladi Lagoon. There are many islands on the north of Kalpitiya too, with perfect spots for kitesurfing in flat waters, such as Vella Island and the Dream Spot. Furthermore, the Indian Ocean is also a perfect spot for wave riders from May to October.

KItesurfing spots

  • Kalpitiya Lagoon

Kalpitiya Lagoon is the main spot where Margarita Village teaches kitesurfing in Kalpitiiya. Margarita Village provides transports upon request to Kalpitiya Lagoon and it is just a five-minute drive from the place.

  • Dream Spot

Located in the Dutch Bay, the Dream spot is just 20-minutes by boat from Margarita Village and it is a super cool spot for kitesurfing! It is a kite spot with steady wind and flat waters.

  • Ilimpattivu Island

This unspoiled and tiny island is the best place to go for a kite trip, as there are not many schools there yet, so most of the time Margarita Villa's students are alone. Very often, they downwind from the Dream Spot to Ilimpattivu Island; all the sceneries in this island are spectacular!

  • Puttalam Lagoon Island

Margarita Village knows many secret islands located in the very big Puttalam Lagoon that can be reached by boat or just by riding from the Kalpitiya main town.

  • Mannar

Mannar is the next peninsula north of Kalpitiya and a perfect place for kitesurfing too. From Margarita Villa, there are organized kitesurfing trips to Mannar Island.

  • Vella Island

Margarita Village provides a beach hut in Vella Island (Portugal Bay), which is also considered one of the top places for kitesurfing in the world. Just 45 minutes by boat north of Kalpitiya. It is a very tiny island inhabited only by fishermen. This island is still very natural and authentic. Also, the steady wind of this area plus the flat and shallow water make it very unique for kitesurfing. Margarita Village provides accommodation in Vella Island to spend two or three kitesurfing days.
