Destination Overview: Mindoro is excellent for beginner and advanced kitesurfers as well as for families or people traveling in groups.
Kitespot(s) Overview: In front of Kitesurf-Mindoro there is a private shallow bay with side-onshore wind from the left protected by an outside reef. Outside there are 10 islands nearby and all easily reachable by kite. It's possible to kite every day at a different spot!
Other activities & things to do: There are plenty of other activities besides kitesurfing: massage, yoga, trail running, standup paddle, cooking classes, diving, snorkeling, waterfalls, caving, etc. You can explore mountains nearby: discover the Mt. Iglit National Park with the wild buffalo herds, or cross the mountains guided by the tribal Mangyan people.
There's also full-on mountain expeditions like the Mt Iglit climb or Mindoro crossing from the East to the West on the Mangyan trails.
