+ Huge flatwater lagoon
+ Hotel Santa Maria: the ONLY accommodation directly at the spot with swimming pool
+ More than 300 days of wind a year
+ Season from March till November
+ Newly renovated apartments located on the front row to the spot
+ only 3 hours away

Since the beginning of 2014 we have our KiteWorldWide sales office in Italy. Huge flatwater lagoon spots as well as up to 300 days of wind per year is what we love about this country! With Sicily we found one of the best Italian spots.

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 November.

On top the two different wind systems create 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.

And of course 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!
