In fact, thanks to its location, in the center of the Mediterranean, in the beaches of Sardinia, many of which are away from the bustle of the crowds of swimmers, winds are blowing often (the most frequent winds are Mistral (NW) and Scirocco (SE)) creating the perfect conditions for kitesurfing. Winds and great beaches, conditions that make Sardinia a kitesurfing paradise!
Where to kitesurf in Sardinia: go to southern Sardinia
In Sardinia there are several kitesufing spots, both in the north and in the south of the island.
The south of Sardinia is probably one of the windiest coast of the Mediterranean Sea and therefore rich of kite-spots: Punta Trettu, Poetto of Cagliari, Petrol Beach in Capoterra near Cagliari, Quartu Sant’Elena, Chia, Villasimius, Santa Margherita di Pula, Funtanamare, Porto Botte.
Among others, Punta Trettu is considered one of the best kite-spot in Sardinia and one of the best in Europe and in the world. In fact, with shallow and flat water, Punta Trettu is a perfect kite beach especially for beginners, that can stand up and walk in case of need. In a nutshell Punta Trettu is a kitesurfing paradise. Here in Punta Trettu, we offer kite-courses and other kite services in almost all conditions. In addition, thanks to our Punta Trettu Kite Center Sardinia, here in Punta Trettu we can offer also accommodation, Kite-Cafè and Lounge bar, hot shower, camping services, etc.
The main beach of Cagliari, Poetto, between the Sella del Diavolo and the beach of Quartu Sant’Elena, besides being famous for its nightlife, it is also a great winter kitesurfing spot (in the summer is too crowded and there are no kite-zones). At Poetto beach, long approximately 10 km, in the winter season, there is a lot of space. The best winds for kitesurfing at Poetto Beach are the Scirocco and Levante. At Poetto beach every year take place some kite events, like the Kite Foil World Championships.

La Maddalena Spiaggia, better knows by kitesurfers as Petrol Beach, 20 minutes from the center of Cagliari, is the summer kite-spot of Cagliari, perfect with the thermal wind blowing in the hot and synny days of the summer.

Another beach for kitesurfing, always in the south-west of Sardinia, is certainly Chia: white beach and crystal clear waters exposed to the winds blowing from south and east. Chia is usually a winter kite-spot (in the summer is usually really crowded) and a kite-spot for expert due to the waves created often present here. For these reasons, kitesurfing lessons and kite-courses in Chia are hardly to manage, especially for beginners, and not recommended.
Kitesurf Sardinia: Which is the best kite-spot for kitesurfing in Sardinia?
As seen above, in Sardinia there are many kite-spots for kitesurfing. Now for sure many people wonder: “Ok. But which is the best spot for kite surfing in Sardinia, the most beautiful, the one where the wind always blows?”.
In Sardinia the wind direction changes very often. It may be that Mistral wind (north west, the best kite-spot with mistral is Punta Trettu) or Scirocco (south east, the best spots with Sirocco are Poetto, Chia and Punta Trettu) for a whole week. Or it may be that the Mistral blows for a day, the day after will blow the thermic wind and then scirocco, Grecale (the best kite-spot with Grecale are Villasimius and Chia) or Libeccio (the best place with Libeccio are Geremeas and Villasimius).
As example of what has been written above, you can have look at the following image: it shows the weather / wind forecast for the days of 23, 24, 25, 26, 27, 28 January 2018. As you can see, in this forecast the wind changes direction and intensity every day.
In case the wind will change direction, you should change kite-spot.
Anyway, we can say that the best Sardinia kitesurfing spot, considered among the best kite-spot in Wurope and in the world is Punta Trettu Kite Beach, the perfect kite-spot with flat and shallow water.
In any case, people that are in Sardinia in holiday and / or for kitesurfing are strongly recommended to have a car to move in the different kite-spots, if and when needed.
NB: If you are not an expert on weather forecast / conditions of Sardinia, to find the wind in Sardinia can be not easy.
