Last year we launched a NEW spot in the Canaries – Matas Bay, Costa Calma. Our prediction is it’s going to be one of our top short-haul destinations for 2017 and for good reason. To find out more about this FANTASTIC destination give our team a call on 01273 921 001. 

About Matas Bay

It’s situated in Southern Fuerteventura, a short walk from the also new Sercotel Beach Resort. The new centre is located at what is widely recognised as the very best windsurf spot on the island, with the cleanest wind. The cross off shore direction, with no obstruction behind, creates glassy flat water and is one for the best blasting / speed sailing spots in Europe.

Around a 1 hour drive from the airport based in the North of the island. Costa Calma is home to one of the best windsurf spot in the island at Matas Blanca, here you will find amazing flat water blasting conditions the whole year around. The resort has quite a few good amenities in the terms of eating out and nightlife, but if you are looking for big nightlife then the Northern windsurf resort of Corralejo is better.

A windsurf holiday to Costa Calma is best suited to either dedicated windsurfers (of water start and above level), or those travelling with non-windsurf partner or familes. The wind on this part of the island is very reliable and the windsurf spot here offers some of the cleanest flat water blasting on the whole island.

In the windsurf resort of Costa Calma Planet offer either a small quiet hotel around a 5 minute drive to the windsurf centre, or the option of a 4 star beach resort a short walk to the centre.
