Kitesurfing in Sri Lanka at Kappalady, Kalpitya
Kitesurfing in Kappalady at Elements Beach & Nature Hotel
Elements beach hotel is located right at the best kite spot in Kalpitiya, Sri Lanka, at Kappalady beach & lagoon and awaits you with some of the best kitesurfing in Sri Lanka. Famous for waist deep flat water and the best wind in Sri Lanka, Kappalady lagoon faces the Kappalady reef with ocean waves up to 2m on good days and nice flat areas in between. Kappalady is the most versatile kite spot in Sri Lanka, everything you are looking for right there and a respectful kite scene.
Kappalady Lagoon is THE best flatwater kite spot in Kalpitiya – Sri Lanka. Thanks to our exposed location, Kappalady has the best and most consistent wind in Sri Lanka from May-October. (During this kite season the large Kalpitiya Lagoon is very gusty because the wind is coming over the palm trees and disturbed by a 20MW wind power project.)
When staying at Elements you have direct access to the kite beach in front of the hotel and to the Kappalady kite lagoon which literally surrounds the Elements Resort. You are right at the best kite spot in Sri Lanka - No need for tedious daily driving to the kite spot and back - like all the other kite schools in Kalpitiya do!

Summer kitesurf season in Sri Lanka:
May − September: Strong and persistent SW winds at 20-30kts accompanied and 3−5ft waves on the reef 700 meters off shore. Main kite sizes: 5−10m kites! Due to drifting sand, the sea has a brownish coloring during this season.
During this kitesurf season you find the best wind in Sri Lanka at Kappalady Lagoon where KITECENTER SRI LANKA is based.
Winter kitesurf season in Sri Lanka:
December − March: light NE side offshore breeze in the mornings, giving the sea its beautiful turquoise color. Ideal for dolphin watching, snorkeling and scuba diving. Around noon the fable trade wind is accelerated by thermic effects and a nice kite-able NE wind at 14-18kts results daily in the afternoons. Main kite sizes: 9−14m2.
November and April are the 2 off-season month with unpredictable wind patterns. During that time, the wind direction changes and the wind is not steady. However, November and April are the time to just come and relax at Elements. Even during the rainy season the rainfalls are normally for just about 30-60 min whereas the rest of the day we have nice weather and beautiful, lonely beaches. It is also an ideal time for bird watching and stand up paddling in Sri Lanka.
