Faro, Portugal

Beginner friendly
About this spot:
Algarve is an European mecca for all kitesurfers. Despite the amazing rocky scenery, beautiful sandy beaches, authentic villages nearby and a diverse nightlife, this spot is not packed with tourists. You can enjoy kitesurfing here on the picturesque secluded beaches. Stable wind and flat water make this spot beginner friendly. It is also suitable for more experienced kitesurfers. This place is great for freestyle. If you just want to learn kitesurfing or improve your skills, the Rio de Alvor Lagoon will be perfect for you. This is a safe spot with excellent conditions. Other great spots are Meia Praia and Cabanas de Tavira. Do not worry if there is no wind on some days. Algarve has so many activities to offer you: golfing, kayaking, hiking… You can visit the beautiful Natural Park of Costa Vicentina or go to party in Lagos. Enjoy Portuguese South Coast - Algarve!
