Kite Fiesta is back!

The Reef will once again play host to the St Lucia Kitesurfing Fiesta on 12th-13th March 2011. Sandy Beach, Vieux Fort is the place to be if you don't want to miss out on all the fun and action!
As the name implies, the Kite Fiesta is more than just a competition. It is two days of amazing stunts carried out by leaders of one of the fastest-growing adrenaline sports, and a celebration of the laid-back freedom that Vieux Fort offers visitors from near and far.
Along with kiddies events, local food stalls, equipment demos and a variety of other beach activities, you can also dance the night away to the sounds of live reggae and rock bands.

Best of all, the Kite Fiesta is free to spectators, and there's only a modest US$50 entry fee for participants in the kite competition. For more information about the event and to reserve accommodation (available at reduced rates to spectators/competitors attending the event), visit the event website at:
