The Best Kiteboarding Spot for windy holidays

The strategic location of Jeneponto makes it a top destination in Asia for wind tourism & kiteboarding.

Sulawesi has always been famous in Indonesia for its strong wind, especially in the southern part, where the 2 biggest Indonesian wind farms are located: Sidrap in the mountains & Jeneponto on the coastline.

Jeneponto benefits from mountains compression and tip effect that both speed up the trade winds. This specific area experiences also a very long dry season guaranteeing winds consistency, only disturbed by moon cycles. 

Due to these tremendous wind statistics, 20 wind turbines have been set up in Jeneponto to boost green energy for the country.

The Spot

Exciting Playground

Nestled in a safe lagoon stretching over 2km of shallow & flat waters, you will enjoy this newly charted spot preserved from the crowd.

Beach is offering large space for safely taking-off & landing. At low tide, the beach widens up to 300m to practice mountain board.

The spot works at high and mid tides with the lagoon moving, but the fun remains the same. At very low tide, we have a dedicated kite zone with no hazards.

Small kickers & glassy water, you will never get bored by your kiteboarding sessions.

There is something for everyone to enjoy: beginners to learn fast & experienced riders to push their limits with new tricks & big airs.
