Belize is a paradise for water sports enthusiasts. Windsurfing and kitesurfing are especially popular here due to stable winds and year-round warm ocean waters. With about 200 miles of coastline, it's easy to find a good spot with a steady breeze. The winds blow the strongest and are most consistent during the dry season from February through July. The calmest months are August and September.
The most popular windsurfing and kitesurfing destinations are Ambergris Caye and Caye Caulker in North Belize. Both locations have rentals and are easily accessible from Belize City. Caye Caulker attracts a younger and hip crowd and enjoys steady winds (12 to 20 knots) from February through July. Kitesurfing shops and instructors can be found in San Pedro on Ambergris Caye as well as on Caye Caulker.
In South Belize, Long Caye, Hopkins and Punta Gorda, the best known windsurfing and kitesurfing spots exist. Silk Rock Adventures operates on Long Caye, far out in the sea, surrounded by Glover's Reef Marine Preserve. Windsurfing at Glover’s Reef will satisfy both beginners and experts, as there is a sheltered lagoon as well as open sea waters. The winds are usually 10-20 knots during the high-wind season from January through March. On the other hand, in Hopkins, down the coast, April and May are the best months for wind sports. Rentals, private lessons, and guides are available in Hopkins village.
