Sardinia, as well as being a beautiful country, rich in natural, cultural, culinary traditions and landscapes, has 1,897 km of coastline and is one of the windiest regions in Europe. Because of its location, in the center of the western Mediterranean, Sardinia is a very wind island where the most frequent winds are Mistral (NW) and Scirocco (SE). it is rich in great beaches, of which many are  away from the bustle of the crowds of swimmers. With this conditions, Sardinia can be considered a paradise for kitesurfing: Kitesurf Sardinia, one word!

In Sardinia, you can therefore find many places that have the ideal characteristics for kiteboarding.

The south of Sardinia is probably one of the windiest coast of the Mediterranean and therefore rich in many Kite Spots: Poetto of Cagliari, Petrol Beach in Capoterra near Cagliari, Quartu Sant’Elena, Chia, Villasimius, Santa Margherita di Pula, Funtanamare, Porto Botte, Punta Trettu.

The main beach of Cagliari, Poetto, is perhaps the best known by tourists. It is between the Sella del Diavolo (Devil’s Saddle) and Quartu Sant’Elena. Besides being famous for its nightlife, it is also a great spot for kitesurfing: there is a lot of space, since Poetto is long approximately 10 km where Mistral, Scirocco and Levante blow almost every day. The beach is sandy and is easily accessible both by car and by public transport. At Poetto beach every year take place some kite events, as the Kite Foil World Championships 2017. To understand in which weather conditions and which kite lessons and courses are proposed in this Kite Spot of Sardinia, you can have a look at the Sardinia Kitesurfing Lessons page.

La Maddalena Spiaggia better knows as Petrol Beach in Capoterra, blown in the summer months by Scirocco, Ostro and Thermic winds. On the hot days of summer it is an ideal spot for kite surfing, even for beginners. To understand in which weather conditions and which kite lessons and courses are proposed in this Kite Spot of Sardinia, you can have a look at the Sardinia Kitesurfing Lessons page.

Another beach for kitesurfing, always in the south-west of Sardinia, is certainly the beach of Chia: white beach and crystal clear waters exposed to the Mistral and the south winds. Chia is a Kite spot for expert and for this reason kite lessons and courses are proposed just in some cases.

Also the bay of Porto Botte is another ideal place for kitesurfing, suitable both for beginners and experts. It is a long bay about 2 km where there are 3 sensational kite spots: Il Fortino, Porto Botte, Is Solinas.

Among others, Punta Trettu, considered one of the best Kite spots in Sardinia.

As seen above, in Sardinia there are many spots for kitesurfing. Many people will wonder: but which is the best spot for kite surfing in Sardinia, the most beautiful, the one where the wind always blows?

Well, there is not!

In Sardinia the wind direction changes very often. It may be that Mistral wind (north west, the best with Mistral are spots Porto Botte and Punta Trettu) or Scirocco (south east, the best spots with Sirocco are Poetto, Petrol Beach, Chia, Punta Trettu) for a whole week. Or it may be that the Mistral blows for a day, the day after will blow the thermic wind and then scirocco, Grecale or Libeccio (the best place with Libeccio are Geremeas and Villasimius).

As example of what has been said above, you can have look at the following image: it shows the weather / wind forecast for the days of 23, 24, 25, 26, 27, 28 January 2018. As you can see, in those forecasts the wind changes direction and intensity every day.

So what to do? The suggestion is to contact a school as KiteGeneration, based in Cagliari and Punta Trettu that every day follow the wind in different Kite Spots.

In all cases, it is strongly recommended to have a car to move in the different spots when wind changes direction. However, eye that, if you are not an expert on weather conditions of Sardinia, find the wind often can not be so simple.
