Algarve

Kitesurf Vacations in the Algarve is split into two sections, the 'Barlovento Algarve (windward Algarve) which is influenced by the Atlantic and Sotavento Algarve (leeward Algarve) which is dominated by the warm Mediterranean sea.

In Barlovento Algarve you will find the excellent beaches of Sagres and Lagos, which are a haven for freestylers and the entire coast from Faro west is littered with beaches perfect for kitesurfing vacations in the Algarve.

As you move from the western tip near Sagres, it stays relatively quiet until you get to Lagos, where the high rises and apartments take over providing a very different feel. This is the main area for holiday packages and short haul travellers seeking the sun, sea and wind!

Further East, towards the Spanish border, the warmer seas of the Mediterranean mean that you can kitesurf in boardshorts with quality afternoon thermal sessions, however, you will find you need a bigger kite in the summer months. When the low-pressure systems sweep through from Autumn to Spring, then the entire coast is bathed in strong south-westerlies.

Being the Algarve, there is, of course, an amazing amount of things to do for the family. From water parks and banana boat rides to mountain biking, horse riding, fishing, walking and more. The Algarve is a complete family destination.

Being a classic package holiday area, there is a multitude of things to do. But the Algarve isn't all high rises and apartments, there are some lovely quiet countryside and beaches just waiting to be discovered.
Flight to and From Faro are the simplest way to arrive in the Algarve. The airport is serviced by 100's of flight daily from all over Europe, and it is often one of the cheapest areas to fly to.
The dominant wind direction is W/SW. Although there are also a large number of days with consistent E too.
