Destination Summary

Soma Bay

Turquoise, warm water, sunshine and more than 300 days of wind per year: insiders consider Somabay – with its fantastic flat water and the all year round 4 to 8 Bft wind yield – as one of the top 3 kite spots of the world. The side offshore wind flattens the water and creates perfect conditions for all kitesurfers. A huge playground, plenty of space and kiting for hours, barefoot and in board shorts, until sunset – endless summer vibes at its best! With great attention to detail, a wonderful team and a lot of add ons, you’ll find everything you need for your perfect time by the sea and your ultimate kitesurfing holidays. Welcome to kitesurfers paradise!
