Overview

Sandy beach and shallow water. 15-25 knots and very consistent wind in the afternoons, lighter wind in the mornings. The area is separated into teaching zone and other riders. No boats (except the rescue boat) allowed as the area is under special environmental protection. Apparently, around 150 kite days a year as the wind is mostly thermal.

Wind

Light wind in the mornings, 15-25 knts in the afternoon from mid-day and light wind again in the late afternoon. Mostly thermal wind.

Dangers

No dangers. Empty beach.

It is your responsability to check whether kitesurfing is allowed at the spot; you might need a 'special permit' or membership from a local kite organization, etc. Local rules can change. Respect others - kiters or not; kite safely and enjoy the wind!
