Bahía Salinas – Costa Rica

Bahía Salinas is one of the windiest spot in the world. The windy season starts at the end of November when the rainy season is over and finishes by the end of April.

This season 2017-2018 from November we have only had 4 no wind days, yes you are reading right, 4 days in 6 months!!! It’s virtually windy everyday!!

Here you have the Windguru stats to prove it!! STATS WINDiest SPOT IN THE WORLD STATS

As you can see on this graph, the wind is represented on Beaufort where:

2 BFT= 1 – 3 Knt.

3 BFT= 7-10 Knt.

4BFT= 11-16 Knt.

5 BFT= 17-21Knt.

6 BFT= 22-27Knt.

7 BFT= 28-33Knt.

8 BFT=34-40Knt.

As you can see since November we have only had 5 days with 3BFT, which means we could easily kite on a 15m (which we are not used to tho..)!! That’s why Bahia Salinas is one of the windiest spot in the world, the wind is virtually guaranteed every single day!!! All they long!!

And there is more!! It is always warm, so don’t bring your wetsuit!!


Bahia Salinas is located north east Costa Rica, in Guanacaste province, on the pacific ocean side of the country, cantón de La Cruz. The closest airport is just 65km drive (Liberia).

The wind on the windiest spot in the world is SIDE-ON, ideal for all kind of levels form beginners to experts. The most popular beach for kitesurfing on the bay is Playa Copal (AKA kite beach), although all other beaches in the bay are perfectly suitable for kiting as well. The water temperature is 22º Celsius (72ºF), so no wetsuit is needed!! Just a rash guard to protect your skin from the sun. Since it is a bay, there is no waves, having a nice flat water.


Do not think any longer, if you want to kite everyday, with wind 100% guaranteed visit us in our Costa Rican wind and nature paradise!! Costa Kite also provide the best accommodation in our kite villa and airport transfers.
