The Grenadines offer the some of the best kite conditions in the Caribbean for beginner to advanced riders. Reliable trade winds that blow 15-24 knots from November to July, turquoise warm water, multiple islands to choose from, downwinders, uncrowded beaches and a large variety of kite conditions all accessible right from your base on Salt Whistle Bay. Kiters typically are using 9-12M kites with mostly twin tips and surf boards. No wetsuit is required, water temperature is 27°C (80°F). There are four kite spots in the area. Our home spot at Salt Whistle Bay has shallow, pristine and mostly flat warm water. The small waves or kickers are super fun to ride or use as a ramp for higher jumps. You can also kite at Tobago Cays, 20 minutes away by boat, or two spots on Union Island, also 20 minutes away.

SVG Air flys into Union Island from many nearby islands, you can go to their website and explore options. You can also come in via Carriacou (part of Grenada) and get picked up there. Typically guests come via Saint Vincent, Barbados, Grenada. Saint Vincent's new international airport opened in March 2017 and should have low-cost international flights by end of 2017. Once on the island, we can recommend boat excursion operators to nearby islands such as Tobago Cays (must see!) and Union Island.
