One of the worlds best places for gentle Kiteboarding.
Gentle winds – shallow sea – warm waters – safe and secure – long wide beach – low density of kiters. Great for the whole family – kiters and non-kiters alike. Safe for kids.
We are especially set up for kiters – loaner boards (from small to Doors), compressed air on the beach, self-launch and landing posts, kite storage.
And on those low wind days we have stand-up-paddle boards, ocean kayaks, snorkel gear

Serene – Natural – Vital

The environment is lush and natural yet in a high-end environment. We are a low-density resort with only 11 rental units. Our suites are all first class with full amenities, from studio’s to 3 bedrooms. Long Bay is the quiet side of the island, yet just 5 minutes away is Grace Bay with shopping, restaurants. 


The Turks & Caicos Islands (TCIs) should definitely be high on your bucket list – this is a high-end destination for kiters and non-kiters alike. The island of Providenciales has become one of the most desired kiting destinations on the planet, with two world-renowned beaches,  Grace Bay and Long Bay, offering cross onshore winds, almost no crowds, and plenty of perfect, shallow, crystal clear waters. All this is just over a one-hour flight from Miami and easily accessible from all over the US.


Long Bay is the big go-to spot, a three-mile white sand beach on the south side of Providenciales. Onshore or side onshore winds, warm shallow waters, and fairly flat water with little chop, no rocks or rip currents means this beach is made for kiteboarding and is ideal for gentle, mellow kiting and foiling. At the center of Long Bay you’ll find Villa Ensenica, along with the main kite schools that have set up here so it’s ideal for the learners amongst you.

For those more advanced riders, head to Grace Bay to catch waves on the reef and sandbars but expect deep water launches and strong northerlies here.

Two more nearby spots to check out depending on conditions are Leeward and Five Kays. The northern end of the beach is the shallowest, just a foot or two deep and only waist deep up to two miles out. This spot even in the busiest seasons provides a low density kiting environment, giving you plenty of space to learn, play or practice tricks.


The TCI’s are considered one of the world’s best-kept secrets. Pristine beaches and spectacular coral reefs make it perfect for snorkeling and diving, and there’s always the option to SUP, kayak, sail or go fishing too. Jump on a horse, take a guided nature tour or simply relax in the natural environment. Alternatively, indulge in a little luxury and rejuvenate your mind and body in one of the world class spas on offer.


If you fancy exploring you can visit the Aeolian Islands by boat, check out the Sila Mountain, or visit Pizzo and Tropea towns. Staying on the water, SUPing, canoeing, sailing, snorkeling and fishing are all possible. Or stay put and practice basketball, skateboarding or beach volleyball at Hang Loose.

Getting There

Fly to Providenciales (PLS) – super easy from anywhere in the US, and most of the major European airports too. Take a shuttle or taxi to your resort of choice, or book ahead for a rental car from the airport.

Kite Options

Windguru is fairly accurate for wind prediction so check before you come what winds to expect. Towards the end of the day the winds are usually slightly stronger than predicted due to local thermals. The most common kite size used is a 10 or 12m, but it is suggested to bring your largest kite for there are often light wind days. But don’t be fooled, for kiters wanting more adrenaline, there are many strong wind days in which an 8m or even a 6m is appropriate.

Which Wetsuit?

The sun here is no shrinking violet, so do dress for it – long sleeve rashies, sun hat and plenty of sunscreen. In winter, a thin wetsuit top or maybe a shortie.

Typical Dinner

Keep it local… fish, lobster, conch, jerk chicken, rice and peas. There are many restaurants with great chefs here if you’re after fine dining.

Late Night

For a busier party scene, head over to the Grace Bay area to Banny Buoy’s and Ricky’s on the beach. Chill out and kick back with the locals, listening to live music, bbq’s and bonfires at Da Conch Shack, Bugaloo’s restaurant and Sharkbite.
