Costa Rei, part of the Municipality of Muravera, is famous for its crystal water and beautiful beaches. In the area of Costa Rei area, that covers about 10 km of coast from Cala Sinzias to Porto Pirastu, there are several spots for kitesurfing all with different characteristics. Anyway all the kite spots are “wave” spots, so not good for beginners.

Costa Rei and the whole east coast of Sardinia is not a very windy place. But when the wind blows well, the kitesurfing sessions here are often fantastic. The best winds for kitesurfing Costa Rei are the Grecale (NE) and the Tramontana (N), that blow side-onshore left side.  Sometimes, during the sunny and warm days of the Summer season. a thermal wind (breeze) can blow up tp 14-18 knots. Please be aware that the thermal wind in Costa Rei is not easily predictable.

During the summer season, the beaches are very crowded and there are not kitesurf zones. Therefore, in the summer, kitesurf in Costa Rei is not easy and we can say that this kite spot is a winter kite spot (from October to April).
