The Sakalava bay: a paradise for kitesurfing and windsurfing.

Sakalava Bay is a paradise for kitesurfers and windsurfers of all levels. Beginners or experts will be delighted by this magical place.

Its natural and privileged location and its warm transparent water (between 25°C and 30°C) are a pure delight.

It is not only the beauty of the landscape that has made it successful but also its sheltered position due to its magnificent coral reefs which enclose the bay and protect it against the swell.

This guarantees a high level of safety. Its sandy bed avoids unpleasant surprises. All these features make it an ideal spot to start practicing board sports or to improve your skills. There are also reef waves easily accessible for the most experienced ones.

The steady and regular wind (between 20 and 40 knots) during the Varatraza season, from March to November, makes it a place where sailing is possible at all times. The Varatraza is a trade wind that is strengthened by the topography and the placement of the cape of Sakalava Bay. The wind is at its peak from June to September.

98% of the time, the wind is 4 or higher on the Beaufort Force, so there is very little risk of having to stay on the beach and not being able to sail.

All available services.

Leisure activities

For non-kitesurfing companions, we offer free activities while waiting for the return of the athletes. We put freely at your disposal; flippers, masks and snorkels to observe the marine life. You can also play beach tennis. For quieter activities, you are welcome to our library, with many board games and also darts.

      First kitesurfing holiday as honeymooners, but not our first stay in Sakalava Bay. On the other hand, it was our first stay at Ocean Lodge, and we would already like to be there next summer to return! On our arrival, we were greeted by Alex, who showed us the lodge…

    review rating 5  New location which is the top of the top. The staff, the instructors, the new gear, the bar, the chalets, the bedding, faultless!! Ps: lessons given with walkie-talkie, a device which is essential when the wind blows hard to understand the instructions.
