Day 200 of 365 Things to Do, See & Eat in Jamaica – Ride High with Kiteboarding

Kiteboarding Jamaica
Written by Staff Writer

Jamaica is becoming popular as a kiteboarding venue. The island was included in the 2010 World Cup of kiteboarding, and since then, kiteboard enthusiasts from around the world have been congregating at Burwood Beach in Bounty Bay. This expanse of sand beach is home to some of the island’s strongest breezes, making it perfect for the sport. There are several kiteboarding schools in the area that rent out boards and provide instruction to ensure your safety. Jamaica has the perfect weather and wave conditions for the sport, and the views of its northern coast can’t be matched. You can be sure of the trade winds from the middle of November through late April, as well as some windy weather in July and August. Bounty Bay is best for beginners with its shallow waters, while Doctor’s Cave Beach and Cornwall Beach offer challenges for more experienced kiteboarders.
