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.

SEASON OPENING PARTY WEEKEND

From May 25th – May 28th 2017 in Ulcinj

Celebrate with us the start of a new season in Montenegro. Join us for insane sessions on the water and legendary beach parties at night for a whole weekend.  During the day we go kiting (of course!). One of the kitesurf hot spots in Europe is waiting for you. With no reefs or sharp rocks underwater and stable side onshore winds Montenegro is perfect for beginners and advanced kite surfers as well.

Since the the wind is not kicking in until the afternoon, you can live it up at the beach party!At first, we will make sure you’ll get a good foundation of food with our beach BBQ and after that, our DJ will turn the beach into a dance floor! Or you can go on a pub crawl through the old town of Ulcinj with us.

For all of you guys, who wish to improve their style in riding or always wanted to nail that one trick our team rider Anne Valvatne will assist you throughout the weekend.

We can’t wait!!!

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.

Comfort Rooms

The Comfort 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.

A night at Ulcinj historic center

In the summer, the historic center of Ulcinj becomes a party town. At least once you should risk a look and check out the city at night. We will take you to a nice cocktail bar in the town and maybe we will end up in one of many clubs on offer.

Canyoning

Canyoning means that you move around the canyons of the canyon Nevido for an entire day. Provided with adequate gear (Wetsuit and climbing gear) you will swim, jump, climb and slide through the canyons. You will see numerous waterfalls, a professional tour guide will help you with the abseiling and shows you the way. A whole day of action and adrenalin awaits you in this beautiful peace of nature.

Tara River Rafting

The Tara is one of the most beautiful and most attractive rivers in Europe. In its 145 kilometer long flow it formed a canyon, almost 100 km long and 1,3 km deep. The Tara Canyon is the second deepest canyon in the world. It is often referred to as the Grand Canyon of Europe. This is one of the reasons why it is under the protection of UNESCO.

A whole day you will be rafting around in this unique river experiencing the whole beauty of this astonishing peace of nature.

Diving

The ocean in front of the coast of Montenegro is ideal for diving. Wonderful underwater landscapes, warm water, 20 meter visibility and several ship wrecks are waiting for you to explore. Roman Galleys and World War Two destroyers are waiting to be discovered. Even a ‘daytime-night-dive’ in an underground submarine is possible.

https://www.kiteworldwide.com/wp-admin/post.php?post=10247&action=edit&lang=en#saveFor beginners there is a special diving course where you can try out this exciting sport for one day.

There is whole lot more to do at sight. For further information just ask the team at the kite center.
