These are the most common spots. Not all names are ‘officially’ so but this is how they are called by the people here.

With offshore wind the Sea Angels are active, 9 months a year. You can buy a card at the house (if we have in stock) or at one of the kite shops or beach bars. Not having a rescue card aan need to be rescued? They leave your stuff behind in the sea or you pay 150 euro). Check 



Los Lances, between Rio Jara and Dos Mares, good for kiting and windsurfing with Poniente and Levante when there is a rescue boat.

Balneario, Atlantic side of the Island in town, best for surfing. Kiting out of season with Poniente (but better go up to the football stadium) kiting with Levante only for (‘local’)’pro’s’. In summer no kiting is allowed from the city beach up to Rio Jara. Surfing at Balneario only permitted next to the island.

Valdevaqueros, just before the dune, 8 km from town in direction Cadiz, for kiting with Levante (you’ll end up at the dune if something happens) and best chance of thermal wind, generally +5 knots compared to Los Lances. In summer crowded with sunbathers and swimmers so be sure you have kite-control.

Arte Vida, one exit further (coming from town) than Los Lances. Good for surfing when the waves are to high or steep at Balneario. Good to wind surf and perfect to kite surf with Poniente and waves.
