#1 Lake Garda, Italy

The biggest lake in Italy, Lake Garda is perfectly placed in the Northern part of the country, being surrounded by mountains on all sides.

#2 Flag Beach, Fuerteventura, Canary Islands

The most popular kite spot destination in July is Flag Beach at Canary Islands, located in the northern area of the island Fuerteventura. Enticing white sands, marvelous turquoise water, big kite hub and proximity to the city center are all traits that recommend this location as a kitesurfing destination for summer.

Beach has reef at both ends, so be careful. Anyhow, in July the wind here is strong, blowing constantly and the spot is offering interesting waves.

#3 El Gouna, Egypt

A more exquisite kite spot is El Gouna in Egypt. The resort of El Gouna offers diverse waterways, accommodation, hotels, bars, fitness areas and even a golf course. It is considered to be a top-notch kiting spot due to all the facilities available. A downside of this might be the fact that the area is flooded with tourists that look for a luxurious holiday.

Various kite stations spread along the beach and offer kite lesson, equipment for rent or insights in regards to the weather or upcoming winds. Keep in mind that this is not as windy as other kitesurfing destinations in Egypt, but it is still perfect for kite surf due to the beautiful flatwater accompanied by cozy temperature.



#4 Ulcinj, Montenegro

Ulcinj in Montenegro is a relatively new kite spot destination in Europe that offers you the chance to kitesurf on the Adriatic. During summer, the wind blows constantly every day from midday until sunset, while in July it reaches its highest peak. The destination is more than perfect for both beginners and intermediate kitesurfers because of the vast beach, waist-deep waters and steady winds.

The main city of Ulcinj is at 5 km distance from the spot, which will allow you to find perfect accommodation such as hotels, cottages, wooden bungalows or even camping sites closer to the kite spot. Moreover, you can find a restaurant on the beach that has an amazing view over the sea and that serves everything starting from local dishes and ending with a variety of fresh fruits.

#5 Costa da Caparica, Portugal

One of the top kitesurfing destinations worldwide is Costa de Caparica in Portugal. And if you want to obtain the best kite surfing experience in July, we guarantee this is the perfect spot for you.

Located in the municipality of Almada south of Lisbon, Costa da Caparica spread along the western coast of Setubal.

Most of the restaurants sever local dishes, that are al tasty and locally produced, while a couple of bars or cafes await to serve you with a tasty drink (Sagres beer 🙂 ).

#6 Paje, Zanzibar, Tanzania

The most appreciated kitesurfing location for July is, as you might guess, Paje in Zanzibar, Tanzania. A slightly remote destination, Paje is usually visited by kite sports fans, which makes it perfect for exchanging tips and ideas on the topic. The south-easterly wind blows consistently during summer, reaching its peak during July. White sandy beaches, blue waters, and diminished tourism activities – are all major advantages of kitesurfing in Zanzibar.

A disadvantage of this place is the fact that accommodation is hard to find and it even offers only basic amenities. Is an area inhabited by locals, but if you are not looking for a luxurious place to stay, everything will turn out to be ok. The food consists more of local dishes made with different varieties of fish, which will offer you a deeper understanding of local cuisine and culture. Anyway, Paje in Zanzibar is the perfect place for kitesurfing in June because it offers something you won’t find in any other kite surf destination: fewer tourists and crowds.
