Kitesurfing in Sri Lanka is -without a doubt- amazing!
But the incredible nature, culture and wildlife is worth to discover too!
Go on a day trip to a wildpark. Go out for a couple of days/ nights to check out the tempels and structures in Anuradhapura.
And the scenic trainride from Ella to Kandy (yes take this route, not the other way around ;)). Fan of hikes? Go to Nuwara Eliya and check out the tea-plants. Also have diner at the Grand Indian (go on time, you’ll be standing in a line outside and they only let a few visitors in – but trust us; it’s worth it!).
Kitesurfing Lanka is owned by the same people that run Kitesurfing Mannar. These guys, Léo & Dil, are busy with several projects in order to raise awareness for sustainability and to make their hotels footprint as small as possible! For example: you can help planting mangroves or do beach cleanups on the kitespots.
Reduce your own footprint by taking a re-usable bag (like our kitesurfer tote-bag) so you can turn down the plastic bag offered in EVERY shop. And/ Or use a bamboo toothbrush instead of a plastic one (like our brushes especially for kitesurfers!) and of course: take a re-usable water bottle wich you can refill at the hotel any time; for free! Check out the bags, brushes and bottles here.
