    On the far left side of the lagoon, there is a unique area that particularly appeals to kiters, especially beginners. Referred to as the “puddle” by locals, this small lake is separated from the sea by a stretch of land. It stands out for its absence of corals, shallow depth, strong wind, and isolation from hotels and vegetation, making it an ideal spot for learning kiting.

     

     

    The calm waters and strong, consistent winds provide optimal conditions for practicing various types of bodydragging. (kite surfing).

    The kite puddle is occasionally affected by low tide, although experience has demonstrated that interruptions in kiting due to insufficient water typically last no more than a day.
