+ New in 2016: Foilboarding lessons!
+ Very high wind probabilty due to reliable thermal wind systems
+ Only about three flying hours away
+ Huge sandy beach with waist deep water
+ KiteWorldWide Center
+ KiteWorldWide Kite house
+ KiteWorldWide Guide on site
+ Season from May until September

In 2012 Alex, Kitesurf maniac ever since, told us about a spot with a 14km long sandy beach and super steady side-onshore thermal wind. All of that less than a two hours flight away and with incredibly friendly locals, a fresh Mediterranean cuisine and with loads of other alternative activities. The perfect place for families or a bunch of friends wanting to have an awesome time.

We proudly present the new kite-hotspot on European mainland: Ulcinj (spoken: Ooltseen) Montenegro, former Yugoslavia.

In the beginning we were a bit sceptical, due to non frequent and seldom flights but finally even the airlines realized that Montenegro is growing in tourism. Nowadays finding flights is easier than ever.

In our own kite school, the KiteWorldWide Center, we offer not only kite lessons but recently also Foilboarding lessons! Furthermore we managed to find the perfect accommodation for kiters. Our KiteWorldWide House has lots of space, a huge roof top terrace, a relaxed chill out lounge and a volleyball field in the backyard.

Just like in many other KiteWorldWide destinations, we also offer our complete “no worry” packages in Montenegro. Total Beginners as well as intermediate and advanced kitesurfers will be totally taken care of with those packages.

The team of Gleiten.tv was already at the spot and caught on camera what the beach, spot and lifestyle is all about in Ulcinj.

Kitesurfing at Ulcinj

The Spot

The main spot is ideal for beginners and intermediate kitesurfers due to its broad beach, waist deep water and the steady side-onshore wind. The sea floor consists of fine sand without any rocks or reef. Compared to other kiteschools along the beach no swimmers are allowed in our area so there are only kiters.

From May till September the Albanian Alps in the south cater for super steady thermal wind that will hit the coast in the early afternoon with 18 to 25 knots. In kite sizes this means usually 8 – 12m at high season and bigger kites beginning at 12m for off season. Perfect news for all the party animals and the not-morning-people among  you, you can relax in the morning or explore the surrounding area, knowing the wind will kick in like clock work for the early afternoon.  As tides don’t really exist in Montenegro you can start kiting whenever the wind kicks in. Due to the warm water, wetsuits are not really necessary in the summer. Some kilometers downwind there is a river mouth with perfect flat water. All the freestylers among you will find the perfect conditions over there to improve your skills.

Kitecenter

In Ulcinj there are already several kite schools. To guarantee the best quality and service, we decided to start our own kite school. The KiteWorldWide Center.

Our VDWS licensed instructors are very happy to help you to get on the board or up on the next level. 

The center is located directly on the spot. At the kite center you will find showers, toilets, sunbeds and other seating options where you can relax between the sessions and chat with other kite surfers. We took care of the latest kitesurfing gear as well as of the level of the kitesurfing courses so you will experience the same schooling standards you are used to when traveling with KiteWorldWide.

Of course, advanced kiters have the opportunity to leave their kite gear safely in the storage room.

The new KiteWorldWide Center is the prefect starting point for a relaxed kite holiday!

Even during or rather in between your kite sessions we like to take special care of you. Therefore, our kite center serves yummy snacks like sandwiches and pasta salads right on the beach, which are delivered by our KiteWorldWide restaurant.

Foilboarding Lessons

New challenge: Foilboarding

You are looking for a new challenge? In Montenegro you have the chance to try out the latest trend: foilboarding! Experience a new feeling of kitesurfing and float over the water!
As you need some hours of training to get the feeling for the 4th dimension, we offer you private foil boarding lessons. For the coaching we use Slingshot Dwarfcrafts of 2016, the lengths of the masts can be varied.

Experienced foil boards can of course rent the foil boards.

Accommodations in Ulcinj

It was truly not easy to find decent accommodation for your kitesurf holiday in Montenegro. There are numerous hotels and apartments in Ulcinj, but most of them are quite shabby and far from western European standards.

They often attract tourists with shiny and neat looking pictures but most of the time the reality is a long way from the pictures they show

This is why we decided to partner up with a brand new, high quality hotel to ensure you will have a relaxed and comfortable stay with us.

In the off-season you have the opportunity to stay in the city centre. The city beach is a 5 – 10 minute distance and the kite beach is a 20 – 30 minute car drive away. It can also be a little noisy at night during the main season.

KiteWorldWide House

We were truly amazed at the level of interest we received for this new spot ! That’s why, we decide to invest in our own house for kiters.

As a result, we are proudly presenting our KiteWorldWide House. It offers lots of space to chat and chill out with other kiters, for example on the huge roof top terrace or in the chill out lounge in the garden. For those of you, who still got some energy left, there is a volleyball field in the back yard. The house is located beside the parallel road of the beach. There is a small path (right in front of Hotel Laguna) which leads to the beach within 10 minutes walking. The distance to the kite spot is approx. 10 minutes by car (approx. 50 Minutes by foot). But please, don’t worry: There is a spot transfer several times a day included in your travel price.

Facilities

The KiteWorldWide House offers convenient and clean rooms, with free Wifi and parking spots in front of the house. All rooms are equipped with a flatscreen TV, air-condition, as well as a refrigerator and balcony or terrace. Also half board is inclusive for all Kitehouse guests.

Standard Rooms

The comfortable standard rooms have single or double beds, offering room for 2 – 4 people. In addition, all rooms have their own private bathroom with a shower as well as a balcony or terrace.

Deluxe Rooms

The Deluxe Rooms are spacious and in addition they offer a separate couch area. Of course, all rooms are equipped with a flatscreen TV, air-conditioner, as well as a refrigerator and balcony or terrace.

Catering in the Windyard

Attached to the Kitehouse you will find our KiteWorldWide restaurant Windyard and a relaxed lounge area.
Here you’ll enjoy the half board, consisting of a rich breakfast and a 2 course, daily changing dinner. The half board is inclusive for all Kitehouse guests. Also vegetarians will get their money worth. Please just let us know upfront, so we can plan accordingly.

All meals are prepared with fresh ingredients which are bought everyday from the market.

Hotel Laguna 4****

This hotel really convinced us. Shortly before our visit in May 2013 the constructions were finished and this pearl was shining brightly just waiting for us to come. With lots of style and a high-class interior you will find twin rooms and apartments with all the comfort you can ask for. The beach is only about 10 minutes walking distance away and the spot is a 20-30 minute stroll away. NO WORRIES – we will pick you up and bring you back to the hotel every day for free. If you wish you can also rent bicycles at the hotel (additional cost). Half board can be booked optional.

The Laguna offers all the amenities of a modern 4**** hotel. 24h reception, elevator, modern interior, free Wi-Fi and parking lots. All of the rooms are equipped with a big flat screen TV and air conditioning.

Twin room

The spacious twin rooms are provided with big cosy twin beds. The modern bathroom is always cleaned and towels will be changed if wanted.

Apartments

The apartments are perfect for families or two friends that want to sleep in separate rooms. One bedroom with twin beds and a living room including a sofa bed will let you sleep like a baby. Additionally you will find a kitchenette with a hob and a fridge.

Single bed rooms

The single rooms are little bit smaller than normal rooms. Of course, you will find your own modern bathroom with shower and a terrace to chill outside.

Catering: breakfast

Included in the price is a nice and comprehensive breakfast buffet. At night you can also dine in the hotel. A large variety of international and local, Mediterranean cuisine is always available.

KiteWorldwide Feeling just around the corner

Of course, all the guests of Hotel Laguna are more than welcome in our KiteWorldWide House. The beach volleyball field is just waiting for you to play and the obligatory “after kite” beer  is a real pleasure in the Windyard (in-house restaurant and bar). By the way, lounging there is another highlight of the day.

The KiteWorldWide Guest House is just a few 100 meters away from Hotel Laguna, where community-feeling and fun are guaranteed.
