Kiteboarding Las Terrenas – one of the best places for kiteboarding in the world. With miles of pristine coastline, there are waves, wind and flatwater for all riders. With endless sandy beaches and flatwater everywhere, kite enthusiasts get tropical, subtropical and temperate climates depending on the time of year.
The varieties of wind speeds make kitesurfing ideal. And, it’s fair to say that up until now Kiteboarding Las Terrenas has stayed off the radar of mainstream adventures and travellers who reach the Dominican Republic because places like Cabarete have been heavily promoted, making them far more well-known. That has been a good thing, right? It has meant that kiteboarding in Las Terrenas has remained one of the best kept secrets. Less tourists have meant that the area has been a hidden paradise for advanced kiteboarders and beginners alike.
That all changed by 2017 when a series of news articles about pro-kiteboarders rating Las Terrenas as their top kiteboarding destination hit the mainstream. This catapulted Las Terrenas onto the world map. Though it did not translate into an influx of tourists immediately, probably because 2020 and 2021 were non-travel years that we would all rather forget thanks to you-know-what.
This means you can experience Kiteboarding Las Terrenas without the big crowds. Kiteworld has private kiteboarding lessons for families, kids, and advanced riders across spacious coastlines where you don’t have to fight for a spot on the beach or in the water.
