Bahia Salinas

Short summary

During dry season Bahia Salinas is a very windy spot with the most quiet beaches. Surrounded by nature it creates an easy going atmosphere. There is no need to hurry when you are staying near the beach, and there are many relative cheap villas to stay during your kitetrip. Start your day with a strong breakfast, kite to the small island in the centre of the bay, and end your day with a dive in the pool and some beef from the barbecue. Many reasons to start your kitesurfing Bahia Salinas trip!
