Kite surfing at Santa Marianita beach

Kite surfing at Santa Marianita beach

Also known as Bonita Beach, this beach is the best place to go kite surfing in Ecuador. This is because of the great width of the beach, which allows an excellent mobility for the kite, and also because of the perfect winds and the ideal height of its waves. If you have never tried this sport, don't worry! There are lots of schools where you can learn and you have plenty of space to practise.
