1. KITING IN KENYA: CHE SHALE
Beginners & Advanced This beautiful beach is about two hours north of Mombasa and is a more high end kite destination. It is said here: the further north you go, the better the wind! There are a number of kite schools located right on the beautiful beach, and with few people on the beach, this stretch of Kenyan coast is all yours to kite! You can rent equipment here as well as take lessons: perfect for beginners but certainly also for advanced students. Join the kite community!
2. KITING IN KENYA: WATAMU
Advanced My personal favorite when it comes to the coast of Kenya: beautiful Watamu. Watamu is known as one of the best diving and snorkeling places in East Africa! With clear green-blue water and beautiful coral, this is not difficult to imagine. But in addition to floating under water and enjoying yourself, you can also float perfectly over the water in Watamu. The beautiful flat water makes a perfect surface for kiting. Hungry after a sporty day at the sea? Find one of the many Italian restaurants on the coast and treat yourself with a large plate of pasta and a delicious glass of wine.
3. KITING IN KENYA: DIANI
Beginners & Advanced The most popular beach in Kenya! Just an hour’s drive from Mombasa, this white sandy beach with clear blue water offers a great place to kite. There are plenty of kite surfing schools here where you can take a lesson as a beginner, or where you can rent equipment as a kite-pro and go on an adventure yourself. Diani is known for the good steady wind and plenty of sun – which are of course the perfect kite conditions. At the end of the day you can open a nice cold beer and in the evening you can throw your hips loose in one of the many great clubs or cozy bars in Diani.

4. KITING IN KENYA: NYALI-MOMBASA
Beginners & advanced This spot just outside Mombasa is very popular among the locals. Compared to the other places, Nyali may not be the most beautiful spot, but it is very chill! It is also very nice to meet Kenyan kiters and exchange experiences. The flat water makes this a good place for beginners. So if you are looking for some relaxation while visiting hectic yet charming Mombasa, rent a kite and take to the water!
5. KITING IN KENYA: MWAZARO
Advanced If you go further south from Diani, you will arrive in Mwazaro. This spot is practically on the Tanzanian border. Mwazaro is the perfect place for freestylers due to the presence of a lagoon. You will find small waves, there are no coral or stones, and the water is not too deep. Ideal! From there, travel further into Tanzania, to make the coast there unsafe with your kite. Because with a good jump you land on the beach of Zanzibar!
