kite spots in sri lanka

Kitesurfing in Sri Lanka is for most part in the North West of the country approximately 150 km north of Colombo Airport. The peninsula with its main town called Kalpitiya stretches for about 50 kilometers from top to bottom and encloses the big Puttalam Lagoon. Apart from these popular kite spots in Kalpitiya peninsula and Puttalam, there are some other kite spots in Sri Lanka. Chillaw, and Negombo located south of Puttalam are also two main kite spots in Sri Lanka. Mannar Island is also gaining its reputation as an excellent kite spots in Sri Lanka recently.

Most kitesurfing resorts in the North West region are located either on the bigger Kalpitiya Lagoon or on the smaller Kappalady Lagoon (see below). Puttalam Lagoon is also another popular kite spot in Sri Lanka and popular for kite trips and kite safaris.

Kappalady Lagoon, although smaller compared to other kite locations is one of  the best kite spots in Sri Lanka where the wind blows consistently throughout the year.
