Kitesurfing in Italy / Sicily, that’s a huge flatwater lagoon spot with very good wind conditions, accommodation right on the spot and a great team of KiteWorldWide instructors teaching with brand new kitesurfing gear.

A truly huge lagoon with flat and shallow water throughout offers the perfect conditions to learn kitesurfing.

The short distance to the African continent is responsible for the warm and pleasant temperatures from March until Ocotber.

Apart from an excellent climate there are two different wind systems that create near constant wind. That’s how we like it!

For the kite lessons, we are working in partnership with the local kite school. We bring our own instructors and equipment while our partner on site offers the spot, storage and other infrastructure.

Like allways we have one of the best accommodations on the spot for you: the Santa Maria Hotel welcomes you with freshly renovated rooms, continental breakfast and the only pool you will find around the lagoon.

Buongiorno Sicilia!

General Information

Currency

In Sicily, the Euro € is the official currency.

Entry documents and visa

All EU citizen you do not need a Visa.

People from other countries should consult there embassy, or contact us for assistance.

Flights

There are many direct flights from Germany, Austria and Switzerland, as well as flights with a stopover.

The destination airports are Palermo or Trapani.

Since Palermo is quite crowded, it takes at least 1.5 hours to check in.

Some low-cost airlines fly to Trapani, which we usually do not offer, because the low-cost airlines do not cooperate with tour operators. Therefore we recommend that you search for these flights independently.

Transfer / rental car

The airport Palermo is approximately 1h away from the spot and the accommodation.
The transfer from Palermo will be charged additionally with 200€ per car, so 100€ each way.

The transfer from/to Trapani airport is 30€ per car, so 15€ per way.

A cheaper alternative to the airport transfer from Palermo is a rental car. We are happy to assist you in this matter.

Food and Beverage

In the Hotel Santa Maria a rich breakfast is included.
The Santa Maria Residence does not include breakfast, but therefore kitchenettes are available.

In the vicinity of the spot and the accommodations you will find lots of great restaurants and bars for all tastes and budgets.

Kiteschool / KItespot

The popular spot is a huge lagoon with a continuous standing depth. Here beginners as well as freestylers can ride with constant wind.
The lagoon works in all wind directions, is independent of tides and offers a high wind yield.
On the area in front of the lagoon you have enough space to set up and dismantle.

Occasionally nettles/anemones appear in the lagoon, which is why we recommend, also men, wear long tights and socks/shoes for kiting. Some skin reacts a bit sensitively to the nettles/anemones and there it is better to prevent.
For autumn we also recommend wearing a Neo because it starts to cool down.

On site we work together with KiteboardingEvent. You will find new material from Core and Duotone, which you can rent and test.
KiteboardingEvents also provides the VDWS licensed team on site which offers a super all-round service.
