Tucked in the far western part of the Caribbean, Roatan – one of the Bay Islands of Honduras – boasts authentic charm and unspoiled nature. Our hotel Camp Bay Lodge is ideally located in front of the main kitespot – a beautiful white sand beach surrounded by crystal clear waters and lush green hills. The reef system enclosing the island attracts scuba divers from all around the world. The Caribbean Trade Winds spoil us with consistent winds from December till September. However, the most reliable period is from February till the end of August. Ideal for foiling, cruising, bump and jump. You’ll find flat waters and waves. Kitesurf Roatan  provides beach & rescue service, storage boxes, beginner to advanced lessons, rental gear from Core Kiteboarding and a small shop and repair service. Take it easy and launch right here, or join unforgettable boat excursions and downwinders to the best spots around.

The modern history of Roatan has resulted in a blend of Caribbean & Latin culture & cuisine. Our onsite restaurant provides fresh & healthy locally inspired food. Daily yoga sessions & massage treatments combined with the slow pace make this a perfect get away for nature lovers, soul seekers and explorers.


You’d be forgiven for never having heard of Roatán… nestled away in the far western part of the Caribbean, among the islands of Honduras. However for the secret spot seeker, this gem boasts eight months of perfect conditions thanks to the Caribbean trade winds, along with authentic charm and pure un-spoilt nature. Lush green island hills reach down to white sand beaches and crystal clear warm waters surrounded by the world’s second largest reef system.


The spot offers a huge kitezone, ideal for all levels and riding preferences – cruising, kickers, foil, wave and flat water. Sheltered from the open ocean by the reef, there’s shallow areas for beginners, and nice flat water for freestylers. Great for foiling too as the water drops off quickly to 2m depth with no rocky hazards. Join the boat excursions to explore the best spots and downwinders around.

Everything is on site here. Accommodation is right on the beach at Camp Bay Lodge, and the kite school provides a beach and boat rescue service, offers beginner to advanced lessons and rents out top-quality gear (including CORE boards and kites, ProLimit harnesses, NSP SUP boards, Slingshot foilboards).


From February to August the trade winds offer the most reliable conditions – usually 15-20 knots ESE in the morning, moving to ENE in afternoon and picking up in strength until sunset (20-30 knots).

January till March the conditions can be variable and favorable for wave riding, with trade winds but also seasonal north storms mixing up. April and May is dry season and brings the strongest winds. From June till the end of August it’s warm with very consistent winds just like Cabarete.


The magnificent Mesoamerican Barrier Reef encloses the entire island making Roatán a top scuba diving location with a spectacular underwater world. You can also enjoy the water by SUP or kayak, visit nearby islands and the mangrove canals, hike the hills or fly-fish. Camp Bay Lodge has a calm and mindful vibe, here you can take advantage of daily yoga, restorative massage, hang in the hammocks and wander barefoot along the pristine beach.

Getting There

One of the most convenient aspects to Roatán is that the island has amazing air connectivity, with non-stop flights available from Miami and Dallas via American Airlines, Atlanta via Delta, Houston via United Airlines, and El Salvador via Avianca year round.

There are also seasonal flights and charters from Montreal and Toronto (AirTransat/Sun Wings), Newark, and Milan or Madrid.

Kite Options

We suggest medium size (8-10m) and larger size (11-14m) kites. Check the forecast before you leave and you can always put in a bigger or smaller kite if required.

Which Wetsuit?

No need, the water is a balmy 24-28 degrees, so boardies/bikini plus sun protection.


Expect 2 to 3 USD for a local beer

Typical Dinner

Rice and beans with chicken or fish and plantains.

Late Night

Local nights are chilled. Take a trip across the island to West Bay for a bigger night out and a great choice of restaurants and bars.

We recommend visiting the West End on Saturday nights…
