Panama - Punta Chame Spot Guide

Main Kite Beach

Giant sand beach with a prevailing cross-on wind direction but worth noting there is a pretty significant tidal movement over the course of the day, when the tide is lower and dropping the conditions are flattest. Then when the tide is incoming and higher we get more waves. More advanced kiters are able to get out any time of day. Overall, an awesome spot with a wide variety of conditions and warm water.

Isla Taborcillo / The Sand Bar

Isla Taborcillo is a great adventure to kitesurf over to, taking around 10 - 20 minutes depending on the wind direction. You can kitesurf around the island as well as land your kite and check out the abandoned John Waynes themed resort. We can also arrange boat trips or you can SUP to the Island.

The kitesurfing really comes alive and Punta Chame becomes a world class flat water spot for a few hours either side of low tide. Its best around full moon when the tidal range is the greatest. The water level gets deep quickly away from the sand bar meaning you can really go for it with any new tricks in perfect butter flat conditions!

The Lagoons

The are a few lagoons in Punta Chame that are best at mid tide. There is a small one 5 minutes away from the guesthouse which is perfect to practice freestyle. If you keep heading down the beach for another 10 minutes kitesurfing you will get to the large lagoon (River mouth). There is a road downwind of this spot so its is only suitable for advanced riders.
