The Perfect Set-Up
For Your Next
Kiteboarding Adventure

The Turks and Caicos is one of the best locations in the world to kiteboard. With consistent trade winds, warm climate, shallow and turquoise waters, along with some of the Caribbean’s top rated kite schools, Long Bay beach is unparalleled as a top kiting destination.

Here are the TOP 5 REASONS, with facts and stats, explaining why we have the perfect set-up for your next kiteboarding adventure.

Top 5 Reasons

1. The Wind

  • Side-on or onshore wind
  • Average kite size between 9-14 m2 year round

Tired of getting skunked for wind? NOT HERE! With 10 months of consistent winds, Long Bay Beach boasts some of the most consistent wind in the Caribbean.

2. The Climate

The Turks and Caicos Islands experiences pleasant and consistent weather. It’s always summer here! The temperate varies only a small amount (less than 20 degrees F) from summer to winter months. Even our cooler winter days are warm enough to wear a bathing suit!

The climate and conditions for activities on and in the water is typically excellent throughout the year.

3. The Bay / The Beach

Long Bay beach is a 3 mile long beach on the southeast coast of Providenciales. The water is bright turquoise and clear. At low tide, you can walk out for nearly 2 miles; making the conditions for kiteboarding as perfect as you can get. Long Bay does not get any of the larger ocean swell waves that the northern beaches do, making it ideal for freeride and learning.

About 15 minutes away from the airport and 5 minutes from most restaurants, groceries as well as the world renowned Grace Bay,
Long Bay is close to everything, but yet away from the crowds.

To get to the beach from White Villa, you simply take the beach access across the street, walk about 2 minutes… and you are on your own beach or at least, it feels that way.

If you are indeed alone on the beach, White Villa has installed a self launching post for your convenience.

If you want to see people, kiteboarders, perhaps takes lessons or rent equipment, just walk 20 minutes east, towards the ShoreClub resort.

4. The Island

The Turks and Caicos (TCI) is a small British Overseas Territory found between the Bahamas and the Dominican Republic. Providenciales (Provo) is 37.5 square miles and by far the most populated, most developed and the center of Turks and Caicos tourism. The ambience of the islands is laid back and friendly.

The island is safe (one of the safest islands in the Caribbean), clean and populated with welcoming and friendly people.

Finding direct flights from North American cities is pretty easy as several airlines offer daily and weekly flights, especially in high season.

It’s also easy to get around, either by scooter, car (even though people drive on the left side of the road), jitney or taxi.

For the off kiteboarding days or the non kiteboarders in your party, Providenciales offers tons of fun activities: jet skiing, boating, snorkelling, diving, stand up paddle board, golfing, horseback riding, etc…
