Portugal's Algarve region is a kitesurfing paradise, offering something for everyone. Its warm waters, steady winds, and stunning coastal scenery make it a top pick for kitesurfers worldwide. If you're planning your next kiteboarding adventure, here are some Algarve spots you definitely should not miss.
Fuzeta Just a short trip away from Bela Glamping, our first stop is the quaint seaside village of Fuzeta. The serenity of this location is breathtaking, with azure waters touching unspoilt sandy beaches. Drive your car over to Arroteia ( Ria Formosa, Lagoon side), or adventure with a ferry ride to the island beach. Once there, the consistent winds and calm waters provide an ideal kitesurfing setting. It's a perfect balance between tranquility and adrenaline – a combination that Fuzeta uniquely offers.
Praia de Faro - Barrinha Head west to Praia de Faro, a stretch of golden sand bordering crystal clear waters. In particular, we're targeting Barrinha, a local hotspot famous for its steady winds and shallow, flat waters. Start your kite on the east side, once the road ends, kite along to the east side, usually downwind and once you arrive at the end of the Island "Barrinha" then walk along or use the estuary to move along to the lagoon. Here you can kite on the huge lagoon if the tide is up. The adventure doesn't end here, kite upwind to where you started.
Lagoa de Alvor Further along the coast, Lagoa de Alvor waits to be explored. This spot is especially great for those new to kitesurfing, thanks to its flat, waist-deep waters and reliable winds. It's a popular summer spot where the conditions are ideal for mastering the basics or experimenting with new tricks. Even for experienced riders, the setting of Lagoa de Alvor, combined with the perfect conditions, makes for an unforgettable kitesurfing experience.
Cabanas de Tavira Our journey concludes in the east of the Algarve at Cabanas de Tavira. This traditional Portuguese village offers a charming backdrop to your kitesurfing adventures with its unspoiled beauty and quaint architecture. The consistent winds and immaculate beaches make this a beloved spot among kitesurfers. Even when you're off the water, Cabanas de Tavira invites you to explore its scenic paths and sample the local cuisine.
Returning to the tranquil environment of Bela Glamping after a day of kitesurfing feels like a dream. The comfort of our accommodations, coupled with the memories of harnessing the winds and riding the waves, provides a sense of contentment that's hard to put into words. So here's to the Algarve, a kitesurfer's paradise, where every gust of wind carries a promise of a new adventure.
