Top 5 kitesurf spots in Martinique

Kitesurfing at Cap Chevalier in Anse Michel

Anse Michel, known above all for its beautiful beaches, is an essential kitesurfing spot in Martinique.

Located between the islet Chevalier and the homonymous cape, on shoals, in a turquoise water bordered by a beautiful coral reef, this rather technical spot is breathtaking! The place is also suitable for windsurfing, diving and swimming.


Kitesurfing at Pointe Faula in Vauclin

Pointe Faula is the reference for kitesurfers in Martinique. It is the most famous spot to practice the discipline.

Located in Vauclin, a town in the south-east of the island, this spot is suitable for beginners as well as for experienced kitesurfers thanks to the diversity of the water surface which is sometimes flat and shallow and sometimes deeper and more technical.

The kitesurfing spot of Anse Trabaud

At Anse Trabaud, this beautiful 2km long sandy beach between Pointe de l'enfer and Pointe Baham, kitesurfing is very sporty.

Those who like waves and jumps will be delighted. Indeed, this spot is, especially in the morning, exposed to the strong wind, hence the agitation of the sea.

You will have to be an experienced surfer to ride on this spot: the currents push towards the cliffs of the Pointe Baham!

One of the advantages of this kitesurfing spot is its difficulty of access, the place is thus little frequented, leaving the field free to kitesurfers!


The bay of Fort de France

The bay of Fort de France, thanks to its particular configuration, is an appreciable and appreciated kitesurfing spot. It is intended for beginners as well as for experts, thanks to the shallows of about 50 centimeters and much deeper waters.

Moreover, the kitesurfing spot in the bay of Fort de France benefits from a venturi effect: the winds are more often present and remain quite strong.

Grand Rivière, a spot for expert kitesurfers

The kitesurfing spot of Grand Rivière is the most northern of Martinique and probably the most difficult. It is mainly for the most experienced kitesurfers.

This spot is particularly exposed to strong winds because of a cape effect between the Martinique archipelago and Dominica.


What is the best period for kitesurfing in Martinique

The ideal period for kitesurfing in Martinique is quite wide, it runs from December to June. During this period, the wind is strong and regular.

The rest of the year, the island is not very windy except for the bay of Fort de France which benefits from the venturi effect: the wind blows enough to ride from October!
