Exhilarating, high-speed extreme sports will jolt you out of the lazy lull of coastal life. If you’re up for the challenge, sign up for one of the courses at the best kite surf school in Kenya which is a stroll away down the beach. It welcomes beginners and experienced kite-boarders. The warm, forgiving waters and the sand-cushioned sea bed are kind to beginners while the reef with its swells, kickers and sliders is a wild water-park for confident kite-boarders. Wakeboarding and waterskiing can also be arranged - see the mangroves fly by in a blur of green and a haze of spray.
