About Kessingland

Kesingland is the jewel in the crown. 3 miles south of Lowestoft. It is our premier kite zone on the east coast. It’s also KiteboardingUK’s/WDCouncils approved teaching/ kite zone. This is a scrub, barren beach of huge proportion and can accommodate many kiteboarders, comfortably.

In the summer, sea breezes galore. If the wind is forecast south westerly or any other southerly direction, on the hot summer you will be guaranteed a 12mph to 14mph sea breeze of a southerly direction. 

Anything with westerly is generally gusty and poor, blowing offshore.

 

Good points:

No wooden groyne sea defences, its all kite zone with a large shallow pool which forms at low tide its about 3 x the size of Lowestoft’s low tide pool and is perfect for beginner to intermediates, great for flat water riding. Kessingland also has a well documented surf spot with some great sandbars its slightly further down from the kite training zone, producing classic wave conditions. When the swells are up and the wind is right we are on it.

Very few tourists, dog walkers, just kiters, friends and family.

Its patrolled by a beach warden, keeping the law! And is watched closely by a coastguard watch tower just north of the beach.

KiteboardingUK.com has its club day here on Sunday’s weather permitting, with free Jet Ski assistance for beginners.

There are strict rules and regulations for kiteboarding at this location. Check out KiteboardingUK.com for more info.

 

Kessingland has “buggy beach” a grassland section for kitebuggying and landboarding its ¼ mile south of the kite zone.

 

 

Bad points:

Its quite a trek, from the car to the kite zone. You take everything you need in one go.

There are strict rules and regulations for kiteboarding at this location. Check out KiteboardingUK.com for more info.

 

 

Facilities: None you simply walk down the cliffs make your way across the beach and stay there for the whole day. A short walk from this location, there are shops, restaurants and a pub but it’s pretty much a 10 minute hike.

 

Accommodation:

There are nearby numerous holiday camps with mobile homes as well a chalet style accommodation. The Haven holiday camp actually backs onto the “buggy beach” location which has a large grassland area for kitebuggying and land boarding.
