Above all the kite spots in Sri Lanka we find Vella island; a paradise for kitesurfing and a top kitesurfing destination around the world.

Around Kalpitiya we can find very interesting kite spots that are worthy to go, but Vella Island is THE BEST!

IS IT A KITE SPOT SUITABLE FOR BEGINNERS?

Vella island is a good spot for advanced riders but not for beginners due to its off shore winds. If you are not able to edge properly and to ride upwind, Vella island is not your spot unless you want to end up in Wilpattu NAtional park, just in front of Vella.
