+ Breath-taking pousada
+ 7 mi long sandy beach – enough space on the water
+ Largest Cabrinha kite school of North and South America
+ Most secure wind in all of Brazil
+ Only 15 min. from Jericoacoara

Préa, the original fishing village, is considered one of the windiest, and therefore one of the best places to kite. The wind constantly blows side-onshore here, just like in Tatajuba and Jericoacoara. On top of that, the water is 28 degrees warm so that you can jump into the water without using a wetsuit. Here in Préa, you can relax at the large pool, the Chill Out Area or by visiting our own organic vegetable garden. Of course, there will be refreshments, as the hotel not only has its own restaurant but also a snack bar on the beach. If you want to have an adventure, a trip to the nightlife of Jericoacoara is worth a try.

Jericoacoara, often lovingly called Jeri, is the surfer village on the coast of Brazil. If you are looking for a variety of activities and kitesurfing opportunities, you will find them here. The place is almost entirely made up of sand and is not that spacious, but that’s what makes it so charming. Kilometers of sandy beaches with constant side-onshore wind are waiting for you. For even more fun you will find about two and a half mile downwind glassy shallow water. Here you can just kite, kite and kite! Afterward, the accommodation’s own spa area or the nearby destinations Tatajuba and Préa invite you to a visit. It’s worth a trip, not only for kitesurfing.

+ From bed to board: 20 meters distance from your room to the spot

The Seahorse Bay is the perfect spot for beginners, where everyone has the opportunity to quickly achieve success. This is mainly due to the fact that the shallow water area is very large and the wind blows very reliable. There are also two ways to get into the water so that the kiters do not get in each other’s way. The Red Sea is also known for its fascinating diving areas. But if you prefer to relax after kitesurfing, the cozy garden offers enough space for a campfire or barbecue.
