Going to Vella Island for kitesurfing is just an amazing kitesurfing experience. Vella Island is the best spot for kitesurfing in Sri Lanka and it is located only 45 min by boat from Kalpitiya.
In summer time we go there almost every week as there we can find the best conditions for kitesurfing (flat and shallow water, with very steady wind)
Yet, this isand is very natural and unique. Here we only find local fishermen. There is no electricity nor water supply yet
We normally leave Margarita Village kitesurfing center at around 9 AM. Then, we get a boat and we head north, passing by all the beautiful mangroves area and the unspoiled islands from the Puttalam lagoon. In Vella island we have a beach hut where we keep all our stuff and where we can get some shade. At around 4 pm we come back again to Kalpitiya. The experience is unique!
