The second largest, and one of the most beautiful islands in the Mediterranean, Sardinia is something of a hidden gem. Its crystal clear waters and white sandy beaches rival the world’s best yet it’s just a short flight from most European destinations. And, with excellent wind conditions found across the island, a Sardinia kitesurfing holiday in Porto Pino with Kitesurf Sardinia comes highly recommended.
Sardinia has long been famous as a sailing destination, and is home to some of the Med’s biggest and most prestigious sailing schools. It’s these reliable wind patterns that have also brought windsurfers, and most recently kitesurfers, flocking to the island to see what all the fuss is about. Trust us when we say that you won’t be disappointed.
The Med’s best kiting conditions
The south west coast is fast becoming the perfect spot to enjoy a Sardinia kitesurfing holiday. It’s the windiest region of the island, with the strait between Sant’Antioco and the main island channelling some pretty big gusts. It’s no surprise to see a huge wind farm high up on the hills behind you while you ride.
According to statistics, you can expect around 197 days a year with winds of four or more on the Beaufort scale. That means around two in every three days throughout the year will be more than suitable for riding – that’s pretty consistent by any standards.
The beauty of Porto Pino
The white sands and clear water bay make Porto Pino one of the best destinations for riding on the island. This is no tourist trap, with a natural and unspoiled coastal environment providing the perfect backdrop for a day on the water.
Visit Porto Pino with Kitesurf Sardinia and you can combine this incredible destination with one of the island’s oldest and best kiting schools.
