Being part of the coastal province of Manabi in Ecuador, Santa Marianita can be found 13 Kilometers South west of Manta. Santa Marianita is famous for being a world class spot for Kite Boarding. 


Santa Marianita is a stunning 3km long beach with constant trade winds, starting from 16 to 22 Knots coming from the southwest and hitting side on shore. Our best conditions season starts on May to December.


 It offers the best wind conditions in Ecuador, and like any other community along the coastline, it is also a fishing village.


As Mother Nature is so amazing, the humpback whales move directly past Ocean Freaks Kiteboarding School, as they migrate south, which is a very common sight between May and August.
