About The Montes:                                                                                      

The Montebello Islands are an archipelago of around 174 small islands off the Pilbara coast of north-western Australia.

The trade winds that dominate the Pilbara Coast from May to October make this archipelago an untouched kitesurfers paradise. Known for its spectacular landscapes, pristine lagoons, beautiful white beaches and many coral reefs – the Montebello Islands have so much to explore and is a playground for kitesurfing, surfing, diving, snorkelling and fishing.

Aptly named Montebello which is Italian for “beautiful mountain”, the islands form a conservation park administered by the Western Australian Department of Environment and Conservation.

The Montebello Islands were the site of three nuclear weapons tests during the 1950s (but these days the radiation levels are safe for visitors).

The Archipelago is home to a diverse range marine animals including more than 450 species of fish!Dugongs also forage among the seagrass and seaweed beds and more than 10 different species of whales and dolphins frequent the area.


Hopefully there will be plenty of Kitesurfing however as always this is dependent on the weather. If the wind is not ideal to kitesurf there will be an abundance of other activities such as surfing, SUP’ing, snorkelling, island exploring and fishing. Karratha Kite School will also have a range Airush gear for riders to demo including foils, foil boards and kites.
