PORTO BOTTE

Porto Botte, Fortino - S. Giovanni Suergiu 09010 (SU) / Porto Botte - Giba 09010 (SU)

Porto Botte is located 10 minutes by car from the Kite House, between the municipalities of San Giovanni Sergiu and Giba. In Porto Botte there are two kite spots: once you reach the sea you can continue on the right and reach “il Fortino” where the water is flat and deep. There is a local kite school that manages the place with a kite center and an efficient rescue service in case of need. Continuing on the left, you reach the other side of Porto Botte, where the water is a bit more choppy and shallow, with a launching corridor and rescue service run by another kite school.

The kite spot of Porto Botte is very appreciated for its characteristics of flat water and strong wind that make a good place to learn kitesurf and to improve freestyle. The two kite spots inside the bay can guest a large number of kiters in 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 wind, with sun or little cloudiness, blows from 5 to 10 knots stronger than expected.

Main winds

  • The North-West wind (Mistral) that predominates in Sardinia, blows strong and direct into the Gulf of Palmas increasing in intensity due to thermal wind and “Venturi effect”.
  • The South-East wind (Scirocco) coming from the opposite direction, is a bit gusty and side-off.
  • The West wind (Ponente) and South-West (Libeccio) blow well from spring to autumn if the sky is not too cloudy.
  • The North wind (Tramontana) often blows strong and cold in the bay during the entire winter season (even more than 50 knots).
