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!

Kitesurfing in Italy – Marsala / Lo Stagnone on Sicily

One of the biggest flat water lagoons in Europe. The lagoon offers flat water, knee to waist deep throughout, this is Lo Stagnone from Marsala! There are two different wind systems, both suitable for kiting –  and one of them is always on!
At the north eastern end of the lagoon you’ll find the town of Santa Maria and the kite area. At this point, both wind directions are kiteable. A complete kitesurf infrastructure, consisting of a wide area for setting up the equipment, launch and landing area, showers, storage and a restaurant. Everything is covered with the Kitepass, which is included in all KiteWorldWide packages.

Due to the shallow lagoon, you’ll always have perfect flat water. Only in the very middle of the lagoon, the conditions might get slightly choppy.

The popular lagoon is HUGE, so you can be sure to always find enough space for practicing your first meters on the board or new freestyle moves.

There’s a special case about Sicily. Wearing a helmet & impact vest is compulsory at the lagoon of Lo Stagnone since 2019. In addition, children are only allowed to take part in kite courses from the age of 14, which was also enforced by the Italian Coast Guard in 2019.

Accommodation in Sicily

Hotel Santa Maria

The fancy hotel Santa Maria Beach was opened in April 2015. It is located right behind the kite apartments, only 80m from the spot. Some rooms have a view of the lagoon, so you will be the first to know if there is wind.

The hotel and the rooms offer a modern design and a high standard.

The extensive breakfast is always included. In addition, the friendly staff at the reception will be happy to help you with advice and assistance throughout the day. The Santa Maria Hotel can proudly claim to be one of the hotels on the spot, which stands out from the crowd with its high quality standards.

Due to the proximity to the spot, the kite lunch break can be spent relaxed on your own balcony or in the pool (the Santa Maria Hotel is the only hotel with a pool at the lagoon).

The rooms

All rooms are equipped with king size double beds or up to three single beds. Of course you have your own bathroom with a modern hot water shower, a flat screen TV, a small balcony and a partial view over the beautiful lagoon. Especially at sunset the view is a very special highlight.

Santa Maria Residence

The Santa Maria Residence Apartments impress with their unbeatable location, directly in the first row at the lagoon. The apartments have been renovated in 2017, are clean, newly furnished and offer a good European standard. They are a great accommodation especially for families and groups who want to stay directly at the spot.
All apartments have their own modern bathroom with hot water shower, a living room with two single beds and fully equipped kitchen, and a bedroom. They are designed for up to four people.
The rich breakfast (in the hotel next door) can be booked optionally.

KiteWorldWide Villa Lo Stagnone

The KiteWorldWide Villa Lo Stagnone is also a kite community house, exclusively for KiteWorldWide guests. A cosy get-together and the physical well-being is of course also well taken care of. The extensive breakfast buffet is included for all our guests. And the evenings can end wonderfully with a delicious barbecue in the barbecue corner.

Additionally, there is a fast and stable internet connection in case someone wants to check their news or stream a movie. For all those who want to explore the area on their own there are bicycles for rent directly on site. The kite house is not located directly at the spot, but is very quiet.
