Is Solinas beach is located circa 15 minutes from the Kite House, in the municipality of Masainas, in the Gulf of Palmas, next to Porto Botte.
As a kite spot, Is Solinas is appreciated for its rather flat and shallow water characteristics that make it a suitable spot for beginners to practice kitesurfing and it’s also a great spot for hydrofoil. The beach is quite long and the spot is safe as the winds are side-on and on-shore. The dunes and the Mediterranean bushes offer natural protection from the wind, some turbulence can be created at the beach due to the vegetation nearby.
The wind blows throughout the year increasing in intensity thanks to the thermal wind (from May to October). In particular the West and North-West winds with sun or little cloudiness, blow from 5 to 10 knots stronger than expected.
During the swimming season kiteboarding on Is Solinas is reserved to a specific area of the beach.
- The North-West wind (Mistral) that predominates in Sardinia, blows strong and direct into the bay, increasing intensity due to thermal effect during the summer months.
- The West wind (Ponente) and South-West (Libeccio) blow quite well from spring to autumn if the sky is not too cloudy.
- Water: chop, little waves
- Level: all
- Wind direction: NW, W, SW
- Kitesurfing school
- Kite rental
- Assistance and supervision
- Rescue service
- Showers and 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!
