Kitesurfing Quartu Sant’Elena: Spot description

This spot is named “Le Torrette“ because of the forts of II World War on the beach.

In addition to winds described in the spot “Poetto”, here it is possible kitesurfing with Mistral that, even if off-shore and gusty, comes with a super flat water.

The spot is not “workable” in the summer season because of the many bathers and the unavailability of kitesurf launch areas.

How to reach Le Torrette

From Cagliari, get Viale Poetto till the beach.

From Quartu S. Elena, get Via Colombo, till the beach.

Arriving from S.S. 554 or Villasimius, simply get Cagliari direction.
