Atlantis kite beach in the south of Bonaire is one of the best kiteboarding spots in the world, and the wind has an average speed of 17-22 knots 300+ days a year. The best wind season is between January ’til July. An average day at this spot is side-offshore wind the whole day which makes it quite gusty most of the time, but enoyable for freeride, freestyle and big jumps. Daily around 5pm, the wind turns completely offshore and gets more stable, and usually during the sunset the conditions become the best to enjoy kitesurfing here.
The weather temperature is above 30C degrees, with a sea temperature of about 28C. That in combination with the blue-green flat water, makes this a beautiful kitespot in the Caribbean. After a 15-minute drive from Kralendijk you will find this spot. There is a large parking spot around the Kiteboarding Bonaire kitebus. Here you can relax in bean bags with music, Wi-Fi and cold drinks between your kite sessions.
Besides Atlantis kitebeach, Bonaire offers a couple of other spots for advanced kitesurfers. Little Bonaire for example, is a small beautiful island in front of Bonaire where you have some great kitespots. If you would like to kite there make sure you have a boat with you for safety reasons as the wind is offshore. The island is beautiful to enjoy a beer or a BBQ after your kite session as there is nobody around. That’s why it is also better to bring a boat with you to make sure you will come back safely to Bonaire. Furthermore, Bonaire has a few wave spots as well. Most of these spots are surrounded with rocks, so a lot of experience is necessary to ride here. The spots are Lac Bay, Baby Beach and Playa Grandi.
Besides kitesurfing, there are many other things to do on this beautiful paradise in the Caribbean. There are many activities on Bonaire where you will be able to enjoy yourself on the land, in the air and of course in the sea. Because of the warm temperatures of the air and the sea, many activities will be related to the sea. Bonaire is famous for its coral reefs and numerous of rare fish species. That’s why diving on Bonaire is a really great activity to do and a highlight in the activity program for a lot of people.
But if you prefer to do an activity out of the water, because all the kite crashes gave you enough water in the ears and nose already, there are the unique mangrove woods at Lac Bay which provide you the opportunity to go on a kayaking tour.
