Kiteboarders Paradise

Perfect ocean conditions, no breaking waves, no hazards and constant on-shore breeze.​ Villa Esencia has an especially easy and safe environment to learn kiting.

learn to kite with the pros

Shallow Sea

You can stand up and walk a long ways out. If you get tired or lose your board you can simply stand up and walk to it. Trying to learn kiting in deep water adds a whole level of unnecessary difficulty. Also here there are no strong currents.

Warm Waters

It’s great to be able to spend hours in the water without getting cold - and that’s without a wetsuit. The Caribbean sea is generally warm anyway and the Caicos Bank that we are on, being shallow, heats up even more.

Gentle & Safe

The sandy beach has no rocks or large projecting sharp objects. The side/on shore winds will always bring you back to the beach. The shallow waters mean you can always stand up if you get tired or lose your board. The beach is 3+ miles of white sand and buildings are set back about 100 ft or so, so even if you crash your kite on the beach, there are no dangerous objects to entangle with (cars, buildings, etc.)
