Kitesurfing Holidays In Sicily

The largest island in the Mediterranean Sea, Sicily offers warm weather and a kitesurfing season that extends virtually all year but peaks between November and March when most other destinations worldwide don't have reliable wind. This relatively undiscovered kitesurfing destination offers flat, shallow waters - perfect for beginners and one of the safest places to learn to kitesurf!

The nature reserve of Stagnone is the largest lagoon in Sicily, extending between the areas of Marsala and Trapani. The picturesque lagoon is home to a number of small islands and is famous for its salt pans and windmills.

While a number of great bakeries, supermarkets and bars can be found close to the kitesurfing spot at Lo Stagnone, we will also arrange a private car rental for your holiday so that you can really explore the beauty of Sicily. Planet Kitesurf is the exclusive UK agents for a professional the kitesurf centre with an onsite hotel located on the western tip of Sicily, surrounded by kilometres of beautiful coastline and ancient cities, rich in historical and archaeological sites. The area of Marsala is linked to marsala wine and a few days spent in this stunning city will complete your Sicilian getaway.

Kitesurfing In Sicily

Lo Stagnone, Sicily, offers a great kitesurfing area for beginners just starting out or improvers looking to progress. The large flat water area is shallow enough all around that you can stand up no matter how deep you get or far you go and with a great warm water temperature, and a daytime temperature that never drops below 20°C in summer, the area is perfect for those learning new tricks or that are still learning to surf upwind. With conditions like these, it takes considerably less time to master new skills and is easier to spend hours practising by yourself.

The wind is consistent and reliable with winds coming from the north and a thermic wind which picks up usually after 2pm and lasts until the sun goes down. It is possible to kitesurf safely in all wind conditions and Lo Stagnone has about 300 windy days per year but the most reliable wind is between the months of November and March, making Sicily the perfect destination during these months when many other destinations are a no go.

Other Activities In Sicily

There are plenty of other activities to enjoy in Sicily on the slim chance you have a day with no wind or simply want some time to relax.

The endless flat water of Lo Stagnone is perfect for stand up paddling and there are several islands in the lagoon waiting to be explored. Boat and ferry trips to these little islands and those further out are also on offer. San Vito Lo Capo, located with an hours drive from the kitesurfing spot is a climber's paradise with routes for all skill levels. A number of beautiful beaches also beckon, providing white sands and turquoise waters where you can while away your days in paradise.

A number of small eateries and even a Michelin Star restaurant can be found within easy distance of Lo Stagnone and provide the perfect places to enjoy summer cocktails and fresh seafood. Also nearby you will find one of the first olive factories in Sicily, and a number of ancient temples, castles and ruins that are just waiting to be explored.
