IS MELONIS – Home Spot

Località Is Melonis, S. Giovanni Suergiu 09010 (SU)

Is Melonis Kite Spot” is an insider tip for kitesurfers. The Kite House Sardinia, now here a spot with sandy beach, surrounded by fields 500 m from the accommodation. A huge shallow water area free of obstacles and always reliable wind, a paradise for kitesurfing. The bottom is sandy, sporadically there are strips of algae, which are also visible on the surface depending on the water level. Punta Trettu can be reached with wonderful “down/up winder”. The Kite House Sardinia also offers downwind trips from Punta Saliga (above Punta Trettu), which are accompanied by guides in boats and the participants are equipped with helmet radios.

The kite spot is very appreciated for its characteristics of shallow and flat water which makes it the ideal place for kitesurfing. The large space of the Sant’Antioco lagoon can guest many kiters in total safety.

The wind blows throughout the year increasing in intensity with the thermal wind (from May to October) and the “Venturi effect” produced by the peculiar morphology of this stretch of coast. In particular the North-West and South-East winds, with sun or little cloudiness, blows from 5 to 10 knots stronger than expected. The South-West also work even better than in Punta Trettu.

Main winds

  • The North-West wind (Mistral) that predominates in Sardinia, blows strong and direct into the lagoon increasing in intensity due to “Venturi effect” and thermal wind. You can easily reach Kite House Sardinia from Punta Trettu in downwind.
  • The South-East wind (Scirocco) blows perfectly from the opposite direction, benefiting from the “Venturi effect” and the thermal wind. You can easily reach Punta Trettu from Kite House Sardinia in downwind.
  • The East wind (Levante) enters the lagoon and it is perhaps the only spot of the South-West coast of Sardinia where you can kite even with this wind direction.
  • You can easily reach Punta Trettu from Kite House Sardinia in downwind.
  • The West wind (Ponente) and South-West (Libeccio) blow quite well from spring to autumn if the sky is not too cloudy. They works even better than in Punta Trettu.
  • The North wind (Tramontana) often blows strong and cold in the lagoon during the entire winter season (even over 50 knots). Next step will be land-boarding!
