Holbox Kiteboarding

Holbox island mexico

You can only reach Holbox by ferry from the mainland. To catch it, you need to head to a small village called Chiquilá. This is the only location operating a ferry service to Holbox and it is a 2-3 hour drive from Cancún.

Holbox kiteboarding spots as an island in the Mexico. It extends over 12kms long and 1.5 km wide. It’s a small paradise, the premises are usually fishermen and the pace of life is very quiet.

To navigate, the main beach (1.5 km long) is perfect : The water is turquoise and there is all the space necessary to kite. We have foot on 100m, so it’s ideal for beginners. Beware however, sometimes the wind blows offshore. But as we walk on a good part of the spot, the place remains very accessible.

Kiteboarding spots

Holbox offers the safest beaches for learning how to kiteboard​

Holbox offers two very nice spots where is allowed to kite, our beautiful island is part of a natural reserve that protects the environment such as birds and mangroves and that’s why we can only kite at this two but amazing spots, Punta mosquito and Holbox kite beach.


Holbox Kite Beach SPOT

7 min from down town on a transport (golf cart taxi) to the north east side of the island passing the last hotel of Holbox called “Las nubes” we find one of our two spots that works with wind from the NW, N, NE, and E some times, the great sand bar of shallow water that we have over there let us make the lessons not only as safe as it can be but also creates a nice flat on one side of the sand bar and a slightly choppy water on the outside of the bank.

Punta mosquito SPOT (Boat ride):

When the wind blows offshore from Holbox town the place to kite is punta mosquito, located at the east side of Holbox where the arrival has to be on a 10min boat ride that departs directly from our school. 

The beach at this spot very nice and spacious for launching and landing kites, the water is still shallow but in this case we find a choppy/wave water, this spots works very good with East and slightly SE wind.
