Note! about the dream vacation…

The water is more of blue-green-grey colors of the rainbow. It is not as clear and turquoise dream blue that people are expecting from tropical destinations with palm trees on the beach.

Still, the beach is beautiful and the exotic spirit is everywhere.

What dangers to expect? Be aware of the falling coconuts. 

The hazards of the lagoon in Kalpitiya are those spiky seashells that can seriously hurt if you step on one (said out of experience).

Also, somewhere in the center of the lagoon, a gusty corridor of wind can surprise a less skilled kite-surfer while free-riding or preparing a trick.
