These white sand beaches are surrounded by a beautiful Mediterranean scrub and have a sand backdrop. Their waters are crystal clear.

For Kitesurfing in the long but narrow beach of Campulongu (it is is not easy launching and landing the kite), winds from West or South West are needed. These winds create almost always waves. In the middle of Campulongu bay there are some rocks, which can disappear under the waves: pay attention! For the above mentioned reasons, Campulongu is a kite-beach for medium / advanced riders only.

For Kitesurfing in the long and wide beach of Porto Giunco, winds from East or North East are needed. Winds from West are off-shore. Winds from North-Est usually create waves. Anyway, in this beach, the beginners can improve their skills on the beach. it is absolutely forbidden to kitesurf in the Notteri’s Pond (Stagno di Notteri), just behind the beach. The Notteri’s Pond is a protected area, being a natural habitat for flamingos and other birds. In the bay of Porto Giunco, there are not dangerous rocks: kitesurfing here is completely safe.

In Villasimius, the winds are often light so big kites are recommended.

Ultimately, for kitesurfing in Villasimius, when the wind changes direction, you can change the kite-beach. This possibility gives you a high chance to kitesurf.
