Windsurfing and Kitesurfing Beaches

<Back to Lanzarote homepage

The major area for windsurfers is in Costa Teguise, where most of the windsurfing schools are located. The wind here blows along the beach, and there are piers extending into the sea which provide perfect entry points for beginners. Las Cucharas beach is the most popular amongst windsurfers for the waters of the bay are calm and smooth, but if the swell is running there is a good break offshore giving more experienced windsurfers the chance to practice their jumping skills.

Matagorda and Playa Honda both have sandy beaches and are suitable for beginners. On the north western coast at Famara, where waves have run unimpeded for thousands of kilometres across the Atlantic the break can be magnificent, with the swell reaching up to five metres. Here, rip currents and wind shifts in some weather condition can create challenging situations and so the beach should be used by more experienced windsurfers. For the absolute beginners the sports complex and resort at Club La Santa has a small beach in a lagoon with expert tuition available.
