Port Barcares Activities

Kitesurfing

Kitesurfing is a basically flying a kite whilst attached to a surf board - we can’t offer much more adrenaline than this – the air time looks amazing and the tricks extreme.  Recognised in 1998 with only 30 enthusiasts, kitesurfing is the quickest growing sport ever. However, it doesn’t come without its dangers hence a week learning the sport in warm water and sun, within a beautiful setting is obviously a good starting block for beginners. For those that have had the opportunity to become proficient / experienced kiters, then a week fine tuning your technique in this fantastic location is one not to be missed.

Port Barcares offers a sheltered lagoon where you can become proficient in launching your kite and learning to control your direction. The bay area is world renowned for kite surfing so needs no introduction.

Windsurfing

Port Barcares is a windsurfing paradise. With shallow water and more than 280 days of wind per year, it's no surprise that Port Barcares is one of Europe's best known areas for windsurfing, and is perfect for both beginners and experts alike.

The windsurfing spot is known as La Coudalére and is around a 10 minute walk from the UCPA centre. It's ideally located to take advantage of the prevailing winds and the shallow water and sandbars in the water allow the perfect place to rest, or to learn your first beach start!
