At the very heart of the European summer kitesurf holidays scene is Tarifa – it has been the most popular destination for European wind lovers for over 50 years. And for good reason: it is the windiest place in Europe! The town is now 100% committed to kitesurfing and there are schools, shops and accommodation options throughout the town. There is also plenty going on after hours so you can kite all day and party all night and – with reasonably priced flights from across Europe – it is one of the cheapest places to get to as well.
Best spot? Valdevaqueros. This is the hub of the kite scene and the beach that most schools operate from.

Another summer and winter kitesurf holiday location with a rich history for those who love the wind, Fuerteventura has been on the radar of kitesurfers since the early 2000s.

It’s a great summer option but you can expect wall to wall sunshine and wind the whole year round…
