Description of El Bluff Beach - Bluefields (Nicaragua)

This stretch of sand divides the Caribbean Sea from the Bluefields lagoon. The spot offers both wave conditions in the lagoon and nice wave conditions in the open sea. The consistent North East wind blows for all the winter months from October to March and can offer good days also from April to July, but with less frequency. On the beach, there is pretty good space to set and launch the kite. Access to the flat water lagoon can be a bit tricky, so better check the entry point before launching the kite.
