Where to kitesurf in Spain

From the azure waters of Ibiza to the expansive bays of the Costa Brava, Spain offers some of the best kiting on the Planet during summer. Located only a short flight from the UK, the sunny beaches, flower drenched sidewalks, quaint old towns, decadent cafes and delicious wines of Spain are only a short flight away. With some stunning beachside spots, a kitesurf holiday to Spain is not just about the kitesurfing – it’s about soaking up the sun with loved ones by your side as you indulge in everything that makes lazy summer days simply sublime.

Here are just some of our top spots and experiences in Spain for your next kitesurfing holiday:

Ibiza

What makes Ibiza unique as a kitesurfing destination is that it’s actually forbidden to kite off most of the beaches on the island. What that means is that if you want to kitesurf here you have to do it by boat. Lucky for us, Ibiza Cruise Experience has launched a brand new boat this year that allows visitors to do just that. But it’s so much more than just a boat – their 24-meter wooden gulet is a luxury affair, equipped with spacious cabins with an onboard chef who serves up delicious, organic cuisine and your very own captain to sail you around the island. It is quite unique in that there aren’t set departure dates so you can book for as long/short as you want when you want. Travelling by boat also means you can explore the many hidden beaches that lie away from the typical Ibiza tourist experience. The wind fills in at two main spots in the island, typically towards the afternoons, and a smaller speedboat is available to take you there when conditions are good. However, the wind in this part of the world can be somewhat unreliable so SUPs and snorkel equipment are available on board for when you can’t kite. Days here are really spent relaxing, eating, suntanning, enjoying the boat and taking to the water every now and again to enjoy one of the activities on offer.

Golf de Roses

Set in Spain’s Costa Brava area, the Golf de Roses area is truly stunning. Large farms are dotted with old stone buildings and along the coastline, long stretches of sandy beaches are punctuated by seaside villages, castles and old forts. In a big bay that stretches for as far as the eye can see you will find the ION Club Golf de Roses. It’s set on a quiet stretch of coastline with not much else around, meaning you have an entire playground just to yourself. The consistent thermal winds pick up in the afternoon, blowing at a cross-shore direction and never really gaining too much force, its a fantastic spot for beginners and foilers. The deep water here is a foiling dream come true and the centre is well-equipped to provide rentals and lessons should you need them. About a 15-minute drive from the centre you will find some fantastic farm style accommodation that really gives you the authentic feeling of the area. Can Pico, a particular favourite, is set within a small village of about 4 or 5 other farmhouses and surrounded by cobbled streets, green fields and the wild Costa Brava countryside. It has a large pool and cosy lounge for when you’re not out on the water or exploring the area.

Fuerteventura

The Spanish owned Canary Islands are one of the more popular kitesurfing destinations with Fuerteventura offering a good number of spots for all skill levels. Costa Calma in southern Fuerteventura is Planet’s go to spot on the island with reliable wind year-round with the windiest season being the summer between April and September. The centre here is located at one of the best spots on the island where the cross offshore wind creates glassy flat water – perfect for practising new tricks. A range of small quiet hotels are situated within a 5-minute drive of the spot, or the R2 Sercotel – a 4-star beach resort with stunning sea views is located within walking distance. Sotavento and Corralejo are two other popular spots on the island that also offer fantastic kitesurfing conditions and great hotels for a fun and vibrant summer kitesurfing holiday.

Tour Add-Ons:

barcelona

Looking to extend your summer in Spain? Why not tag a few days onto your kitesurfing holiday with a city stay in Barcelona? This fascinating city combines wonderful cultural sites with a rich array of art and architecture and some of the best food options that Spain has to offer. Plan to stay at the Serras – a luxury boutique hotel located between the old town Gothic quarter and the waterfront. Set away from the mass tourism of La Rambla but still in easy reach of everything, the Serras offers a personal touch with great adjoining options for families and a really nice rooftop restaurant and pool area. Another great, more affordable option is Hotel Silver. This stunning apartment-style hotel is located in a quieter more residential side of Barcelona but just a few steps away from the luxury shopping street where Gaudi’s apartment buildings are located. Located about 20 min walking from virtually anywhere you want to be in Barcelona, these really central and apartments have their own kitchen and really nice terraces overlooking the city. Offering good value for money, they are great for spending a few days discovering this fantastic city!
