Matas Blancas kite spot in Fuerteventura

Europe kitesurf spot in Spain

Matas Blancas is one of the top kite spot in Fuerteventura because of the flat water in the bay and the pumping cross offshore wind. Advanced kitesurfers will love the flat water which is ideal for freestyle and wakestyle riding, while beginners will need to take lessons with a boat or jetski on hand. The beach boasts great white and golden sand, flat water, and soothing breezes which makes it perfect for anyone wishing to rejuvenate. Showers, toilets, changing rooms, vaults, shaded and quiet spaces, music, and anything else you need to make your vacation a little more beautiful are all available at the kite centre on the spot, so what else do you need. The rugged terrain makes Matas Blancas one of the most tranquil and relaxed kitesurf spots in Fuerteventura, but it can get crowded with kitesurfers and windsurfers wanting to make the most of the flat water.
