Best family kitesurf destinations for summer holidays 2018

With the summer holidays approaching it’s about time to start planning your amazing family kitesurf holiday before everything is booked up! Here are some of our favourite destinations that all have great weather, perfect beaches, loads of activities for the whole family and absolutely fantastic kitesurfing conditions. 


West Portugal

West Portugal is one of our newly discovered destinations that is a fantastic option for families as it is just a few hours from the UK and most major European cities. This great destination has perfect kitesurfing conditions for any level of kitesurfer, from beginner to advanced. It also offers beautiful landscapes, rich historical sites and a range of other activities for the whole family to enjoy. The more experienced kitesurfers can take advantage of the great waves and for beginners looking to learn to kitesurf, they will enjoy the quieter waters off the protected bay area.


This incredible destination has a perfect family hotel, Hotel FeelViana. This modern and luxurious hotel is focused on active tourism which means its sports centre has loads of fun sports equipment to rent for both land sports and most water sports. The family bungalows are perfect for families with excellent views of the sea. Look forward to great kitesurfing, epic mountain biking or just relaxing at the pool. 


Le Morne, Mauritius

Le Morne is a dream spot for a kitesurfing family. For those in the family who love to kitesurf the area offers a flat-water lagoon within the reef and awesome waves just beyond and for the non-kiters there is an idyllic white sandy beach with plenty of activities to take part in. For those looking to learn to kitesurf the big lagoon with shallow water is perfect and in the morning there are light winds which are perfect for the kids’ lessons.


Quite possibly the best resort for families is the St Regis in Le Morne. This luxurious hotel is situated on a beautiful beach, surrounded by a tranquil lagoon of turquoise waters. There are plenty accommodation options to suit any family and the hotel boasts one of the best kids clubs in the world. 


The Children’s Club offers an exciting schedule of energetic, creative and highly satisfying activities. This hotel also provides amazing value for money that is unmatched at this time of the year. The UK’s summer months mean windy winter in the southern hemisphere where you can look forward to temperate days and consistent winds with reduced hotel prices that offer unmatched luxury at unbeatable rates allowing you to get out of crowded Europe this summer!


Fuerteventura, Canary Islands

Fuerteventura has always been regarded as an excellent family kitesurf holiday destination with extremely reliable wind and plenty of fun activities on offer. This destination is only a short flight from the UK and is perfect for a family windsurfing holiday with many hotels offering good family facilities.


Experience this great spot at the Meliá Gorriones Hotel which is located in the south of Fuerteventura. The hotel is perfectly located along a 30km long stretch of beach and boasts a great mini club for kids between 5 and 12 years old. The hotel has a water sports centre and there is also a gym, volleyball court, tennis courts and even a chance to check out the stars in the hotel’s own observatory! There are also plenty of room choices that can accommodate families of all sizes. 


Limnos, Greece

Another new discovery is the stunning island of Limnos in Greece, with its beautiful beaches and fascinating traditional villages. Perfectly located away from the mass tourism of other Greek islands, Keros Bay offers sun, consistent wind and perfect flat waters and waves for windsurfing. You can expect ideal Mediterranean weather especially during the summer months from June to September.


We found the perfect hotel for your family holiday at the Keros Blue hotel. This brand new seaside complex opened in 2016 and is located within five minutes walking distance of Keros Beach which is one of the biggest kitesurf spots in Greece. The hotel offers a family house which can accommodate families of all sizes. With perfect views over the beach and with tons of activities the whole family can enjoy, this hotel is a great choice for your kitesurf family holiday.

For more experienced kitesurfers and enthusiastic wave novices, Ponte Leme in Sal is perfect. At this spot you will find clean, unbreaking waves up to two metres.


When staying in Sal there is no better place to stay than the Hotel Morebeza. This great hotel is located on the beautiful Santa Maria Beach on the southernmost part of the island.
