Funtanamare Beach is located circa 25 minutes from the Kite House, in the municipality of Gonnesa, in the Gulf of Lion. Together with Porto Paglia (excellent surf spot with kiosk), Plage Mesu (suitable for families), and Punta S’Arena (frequented especially by families) is part of the long beach of Gonnesa.
As a kite spot Funtanamare is appreciated for its waves particularly from autumn to spring. In summer kitesurfing is tolerated by swimmers and authorities (usually the beach is not very crowded) and can give great satisfaction.
The wide and long beach inside the gulf makes it a rather safe spot but pay attention to the sea currents that especially with rough seas can be insidious. The wind blows throughout the year in on-shore / side-on direction.
- The North-West wind (Mistral) that predominates in Sardinia, blows rather strong and directly into the whole gulf and in particular to Funtanamare.
- The West wind (Ponente) blows quite well from spring to autumn if the sky is not too cloudy.
- Water: chop, waves
- Level: intermediate, advanced
- Wind direction: NW, W
- Assistance and supervision (on reservation)
- Bar, restaurant, area relax
- Showers, bathrooms
So if you want your kid to be at ease, have a fun time BUT also seriously learn how to kite: Mattia is the guy to get as instructor. Combined with the shallow waters around Punta Trettu (and nice weather) it is the perfect lace to get your kid acquainted, interested and motivated. Highly recommended!
💬 The Kite House Sardinia is a nice, quiet and welcoming place in an oase of olive trees and flowers, only a few minutes by car to the kite spots Punta Trettu, Porto Botte and Is Solinas. We had a fantastic time there, met very nice people and intend to go again, sooner or later. 🙂
We had an amazing time at the Kitehouse Sardinia. Before we went there, we had few questions and Daniele has always responded very quickly. Basically, the accommodation is a very nice place to stay. We were a group of 7 and rented 2 Apartments. We really enjoyed everything. It was super clean and the kitespot as well as the supermarket and restaurants were not far away. Sarah was super nice as well. Always very nice, funny as well as helpful. We will come back one day.
Amazing experience, cool place to stay with friends. Very close to punta Trettu. Sara was very nice.
Sarah and Daniel run the Kite House and are top hosts. The Location is very nice, the pool perfect and our kids loved it. If the wind at Punta Trettu is not convincing for kiting Daniel knows where to find the spot for thermal winds! The prices for rental are fair and the equipment is very good Ozone stuff. I can fully recommend the Kite House and I am sure we will see us again!
