Seco Island Kitesurfing Holiday and Travel Guide

Seco Island

Philippines

Why Visit?

Seco Island is a paradise for kitesurfing. It is only a tiny island (400 m x 100 m) in the Sulu Sea, 50 km west of Panay. But despite its size, it has great kiting conditions, delicious food, fantastic sunsets and star-filled night skies. Sunsets are amazing too making this the perfect dream spot.

Wind and Weather

The wind is blowing almost all year. The best time to go there is from November to April when the conditions are exceptional as the wind is stronger than in Boracay, about 5 knots more. The wins are consistent; therefore the conditions are perfect for progression.

Getting Around

The island is tiny, so it's just a matter of getting there! There are two ways:

Food and Drink

On the Camping trip, you will enjoy BBQ food on a traditional bonfire. It's delicious, and you'll be full up by the end. All drinks are included such as soft drinks and beers and local rum.

On the Catamaran you will enjoy really good food too which is usually fresh fish on the BBQ, Sashimi, and all drinks are included as well.

Nightlife

On the island, there is no electricity. You will enjoy your night around a bonfire under millions of stars.

If you stay on the Catamaran, you can then enjoy a very good sound system and disco lights to have a pretty good party next to your dream spot.

No Wind?

Diving, paddleboarding, and movies on the big screen are possible on the Catamaran.

Internet

No Internet connection on Seco Island.

Accommodation

Under the stars in tents or on the catamaran in private cabins.
