The Funzi Sandbank is known as one of the best kite surfing locations in Kenya. The flat, shallow waters between and around the two separate sandbanks are ideal for kite surfers of all levels.

From around mid December till mid March the consistent Kaskazi winds from N/NE average between 15-20 knots. Between mid June to mid September the Kuzi winds from the south average between 15-25 knots.

For breaks in between the action, a sun shelter is provided with comfortable cushions and chairs for a bit of relaxation. Cold drinks and snacks are available as well.
