Our favourite summer windsurf destinations for 2018

We know how important it is to plan the perfect windsurfing summer holiday. We have tried and tested the below destinations to make sure that you get super consistent wind, amazing flat-water lagoons, fun wave spots and great weather. All this and the destination, of course needs to have a superb accommodation on offer.

These are our top summer windsurf destinations for your 2018 holiday:

Limnos, Greece

Summer is a great time to discover the stunning island of Limnos with its beautiful beaches and fascinating traditional villages. Perfectly located away from the mass tourism of other Greek islands, Keros Bay offers sun, consistent wind and three different kinds of conditions at the same beach.


Here you can enjoy super flat water perfect for freestyle windsurfing, small chop just in front of the centre perfect for beginners and gentle waves that are just a short downwind ride from the centre. The island has very good wind statistics during the summer months between June and September. This northeast wind is reliable all day from morning until late afternoon. The centre is located right on the beach at Keros Bay and offers rentals and courses for all levels of windsurfers.


While in Limnos there is no better place to stay than the Keros Blue hotel. This brand new seaside complex has just opened and is perfectly located within five minutes walking distance of Keros Beach which is one of the best windsurf spots you will find in Greece. The hotel complex offers eight separate houses with 17 double deluxe rooms and a family house. The views from the houses are incredible while the restaurant offers delicious local cuisine. 


Fuerteventura, Canary Islands

Fuerteventura is a summer windsurf destination that offers reliable wind and some of the cleanest flat water for freestyling on the island.


Fuerteventura has always been regarded as an excellent windsurf holiday destination with the extremely reliable wind. The best wind for windsurfing can be found between April and October. Over the windiest days, the wind speed can reach as high as 40 knots. 


The Meliá Gorriones Hotel which is located in the south of Fuerteventura is a stunning hotel perfectly located along a 30km long stretch of beach. There are plenty of rooms that can accommodate families, couples and singles. This great hotel allows you to enjoy a fantastic sun-drenched holiday with two outdoor swimming pools, a tropical seawater pool with hydromassage, water sports centre that provides equipment and training for all levels. 


Le Morne, Mauritius

The island paradise of Mauritius boasts one of the best windsurfing spots in the world with Le Morne. With its stunning white sandy beach, turquoise lagoon and shallow water, it is a perfect place to learn to windsurf.


Within the lagoon, there is plenty room for speed racing or practicing gybes and water starts. Outside of the lagoon, the reef offers great wave spots such as Little Reef with its modest waves, Manawa for experienced windsurfers and the famous One Eye which is only suitable for experts.


If you are looking for that perfect mix of luxury and Creole charm with a perfect location right by the lagoon, then look no further than the St Regis Resort. This luxurious hotel is situated on an idyllic beach, surrounded by a tranquil lagoon of turquoise waters. The hotel also boasts one of the best kids clubs in the world which gives children the opportunity to experience many different activities. This resort has reduced hotel prices that offer unmatched luxury at unbeatable rates allowing you to get out of crowded Europe this summer!


West Portugal

Just a few hours from the UK is the perfect windsurf spot in West Portugal.  This great destination has perfect windsurfing conditions for a range of abilities.


Experienced windsurfers can take advantage of the various spots and conditions along the coastline and for anyone looking to learn to windsurf, there are quieter waters where the Lima river meets the ocean. This incredible area of Portugal provides the most consistent wind in the whole country. The wind is prevalent throughout the summer months and will build throughout the day.


We have found a windsurfer’s dream hotel with Hotel FeelViana. The modern and luxurious bungalows are spacious and comfortable with excellent views of the sea. This hotel is focused on active tourism which means its sports centre has loads of fun sports equipment to rent for both land sports and most water sports.
