Kitesurfing Cagliari

Cagliari and Poetto beach are among the best spots, at the European level, for sailing. To realize the sail potential of Cagliari, we can simply recall that, in the recent past, Cagliari has been home of the 2012 Kiteboard Race World Championship , home of the 2013 Hobie Cat16 European Championship, home of the 2014 Kiteboard Race World Championship for Masters and Young. In addition, Cagliari has been chosen by Luna Rossa Challenge for training the next America ‘s Cup 2017.

So, Cagliari and Poetto beach are perfect for any sailing sport including kitesurfing.

Kitesurfing Villasimius

Kitesurfing Vilasmius, Sardinia
Kitesurfing Vilasmius, Sardinia

Villasimius is one of the most beautiful Sardinia tourist destinations of Sardinia because of crystal waters, sandy beaches and the windy spots.

The main kite spots of Villasimius are Campulongu, Porto Giunco and Simius Playa. You can move from one to another spot (all spots all have a sandy bottom) depending on the wind direction.

During the summer season (from June to mid-September), due to the lack of kitesurf lanes and big number of bathers, for kitesurfing, it is required a boat support (Kitesurfing lift service).

Kitesurfing in Chia

Kite Chia Sardinia

The beach of Chia has a large wind exposure. Usually, north-east, south-west, east and south winds bring nice waves.

During the summer season (May to August), during the hot and sunny days, a thermal wind is blowing (often it can reach an intensity of 20 knots).

Like in Villasimius, also in Chia, during the summer season (from June to mid-September), due to the lack of kitesurf lanes and big number of bathers, for kitesurfing, it is required a boat support (Kitesurfing lift service).

Kitesurfing in Porto Botte

Kitesurfing in Punta Trettu

Punta Trettu, located in the municipality of San Giovanni Suergiu, lies to the north of the island of Sant ‘Antioco.

Among the most charming places of whole Sardinia, the south of the Island holds a position of respect: Villasimius, Costa Rei, Geremeas, Cagliari, Pula, Chia, Teulata and Carloforte have nothing to envy to the most famous Costa Smeralda in the north of the Island.

A must for any Holidays in Southern Sardinia is Cagliari, the capital of Sardinia. Cagliari, in fact, is one of the centers of Sardinia with more services and it is the basis of several low cost airlines, including Ryanair and Easyjet: for those reasons Cagliari is easily reacheble in by flying from many European cities (eg London , Edinburgh , Paris, Brussels, Barcelona, Madrid, Valencia, Geneva, Basel, Zurich, Berlin, Basen, Dussendorf, Frankfurt, Nuremberg, Kaunas, Oslo, Krakow, Moscow , Milan, Rome).

In Sardinia and Cagliari, two are the prevailing winds: Mistral (blowing from the North-West) and Sirocco (blowing from South-East).
