INTRODUCTION
Warm turquoise blue crystal waters, tropical climate, abundant sealife and the thrill of kitesurfing the uncrowded epic sites of Vilanculos and Bazaruto Archipelago Marine National Park. This is what we can find in this destination in Mozambique.
Vilanculos offers a wide variety of kiting experiences from shallow sheltered bays, for the novice, to amazing down-winders for the more experienced. The fluctuating tides, calm glassy un-crowded waters and occasional 20 knot winds allows for great kiting.
The winds in the winter months (June to September) tend to be south to south easterlies and anything from 12 to 30 knots. In the summer months north easterlies predominate.
