Edit

While kitesurfing in the bay of Pozo Izquierdo got prohibited, kiters have moved to Salinas. Wind at Salinas Tenefé is the cleanest of all spots of the island. Spot works good in high tide, in low tide, there are just too many rocks to climb over.

Pretty much nothing at the spot, but Pozo is nearby so you can find there everything – including kite shop and repair.

Don’t pass the “bunker” after it, it’s difficult to get out of the water due to rocks. Works well in the north-east wind.

It is your responsability to check whether kitesurfing is allowed at the spot as local rules might change. Respect others - kiters or not; kite safely and enjoy the wind!

Wind

Strong and clean. Usually 3-5 knts stronger than in Vargas. 20-35+ knts in summer, 15-30 knts in winter.

Dangers

Edit

Rocks. Don’t kite here if you can’t go upwind. Especially difficult to get into the water if there are waves.
