     Located in the north of Madagascar a few kilometers from Diego Suarez, Sakalava Bay has became since several years one of the most popular kite spot in the world.

 

statistique-vent-nord-madagascar

With its unique trade wind regime, the statistics are just unbelievable!  

Almost 9 months of steady winds from March to November between 20 and 30 knots.  

But what makes this kite spot one of the best on the planet is not only its wind, it is also its configuration and the idyllic setting in which it is located...

                                                                                                         

 

 

 

Do you know why Sakalava Bay is in the TOP 5 of Kite destinations?


                The answer can be summed up in a few points:

Its crystalline lagoon, practically closed and protected by a coral reef prevents the waves from entering the bay.

  • The water is perfectly smooth at low tide. 
  • The progression is much faster than on another more "wavy" spot.
  • You ride in optimal wind conditions.
  • 98 % wind guaranteed from May to October.
  • Reef waves allow advanced riders to surf every day.
  • A sandy bottom and water at pool level (about 6h/day) make it a reassuring and a perfect place for beginners.
  • The warm sea of the Indian Ocean linked to the tropical climate is a delight to ride.
  • A wide open white sandy beach provides safe and stress-free kite take-off and landing areas.

A jewel still preserved


 A mixture of beauty and authenticity all implanted on the coast of the Indian Ocean... In a huge, lush and protected natural park that encompasses the famous "three bays". One of the very famous tourist excursions of the north of Madagascar.

MADAKITECAMP: an eco-lodge designed for riders.


Ideally located in front of the kite spot and probably on the most beautiful spot of the bay, the view from home will give you directly on the "action", the waves and the beautiful islets of Sakalava.
