Highlights: Consistently reliable wind, multiple flat water lagoons, 14 nearby islands, and even some decent open ocean wave kiting make Kalpitiya a great kitespot for riders of all levels. Checkout Vella Island (“Magic Spot”) for an epic downwinder with camping, or Puttalam Lagoon for a smaller downwinder. There’s a decent reef break at Donkey spot that provides clears surfable waves that can at time reach 2m+, but generally not too big. Waves can also be found at Dream Spot. Aside from wind, Kalpitiya has a ton of wildlife. Nightlife… not so much!
Closest International Airport: Colombo (CMB) or Sigiriya (GIU)
Other Activities: Check out the national park with elephants, crocodiles, leopards, and more.
