Incredible kitesurfing in Fuerteventura

Fuerteventura is the second largest island in the Canary Islands, however it remains as one of the least developed. The island has some incredible topography and even better kitesurfing conditions. This makes it a kitesurfer’s paradise.


Along the east coast, you will find many fantastic beaches while the west coast is a bit rockier and exposed to the Atlantic swell. In the north of the island is where you will find the main tourist resort of Corralejo and in the south-east you will find some quieter beach resorts perfect for kitesurfing holidays for families or the avid kitesurf traveler.

Here are some of the bests spots on the island for kitesurfing:


In the north of the island at Corralejo is the stunning kitesurfing beach called Flag Beach. The surrounding area and most of the beach is part of a beautiful nature reserve. The windiest time is in the summer when the big high pressure stays over the Atlantic and there is a low over the Sahara. These combine to give a reliable cross-shore wind at Flag Beach. Here you will find some small waves along the beach and some great flat water sections that are perfect for learning to kitesurf. Bring the whole family along on your kitesurf holiday as this destination has amazing hotels with great activities and stunning beaches.


The Gran Hotel Atlantis is considered to be one of the best hotels in Fuerteventura. This five-star hotel has a grand Neo-Mudejar architecture with warm Canarian interior and a pool surrounded by a tropical garden. The hotel also enjoys idyllic views towards the neighbouring islands of Los Lobos and Lanzarote. It offers incredible spa facilities and luxurious accommodation.


Costa Calma

Costa Calma is home to one of the best kitesurfing spots on the island at Matas Blanca. It is in this stunning region of the island that you will find amazing flat water blasting conditions the whole year around. This spot on Fuerteventura is best suited to either the avid kitesurfers or those travelling with their non-kitesurf partners or families. Look forward to amazingly reliable winds and epic flat-water areas for cruising and freestyle. The wind blows in a cross-offshore direction which creates the glassy flat water that is perfect for getting some great speed.


The newly opened hotel in Costa Calma is the R2 Sercotel. This hotel is one of the best on the island and offers incredible facilities. Enjoy fantastic accommodation at a hotel that is perfect for travelling families. It has a kids club and tons of fun activities to take part in. You can enjoy these activities or go kitesurfing at one of the best spots on the island. 



Sotavento is located at the very south of Fuerteventura and provides flat to choppy conditions and is the windiest spot on the island. This destination is ideal as either a dedicated kitesurf holiday or a family holiday. To the south, there is perfect beginner spot, while the area to the north is better for experienced kitesurfers. There is a lot of space on the beach, especially at low tide, so you shouldn’t be bothered by crowds, even in peak season. The best wind in Sotavento is between April and October, however it is possible to get some great conditions in winter. During the windiest days in Sotavento, the wind speeds can reach up to 40+ knots.


The Meliá Gorriones Hotel is set on a 30km long beach in a protected natural environment. This stunning hotel offers two outdoor swimming pools, a spa with Turkish baths, an onsite watersports centre, tennis and volleyball courts, a mini club for ages 5-12 with a playground, kids pool, organised activities and even stargazing in the hotel’s own observatory.
