Spain is considered Europe’s windsurfing Mecca. There are many reasons for this: thousands of kilometres of coastline, all kinds of wind conditions and a warm climate are just a few of them. It is no coincidence that Spanish beaches are a point of reference for windsurfing enthusiasts, as well as being the stage for regular international competitions. Any time of year is good for windsurfing in Spain.

Every year, thousands of windsurfing enthusiasts from all over the world come to Spain’s beaches to practise their favourite sport. Spain is one of the best places for windsurfing in Europe. For this reason it is no surprise that Spain is the country to host the most world championship competitions. Its privileged natural conditions make it a real paradise for the sport. You will also find that the Spanish coast has many other advantages, including excellent hotel and services infrastructure and the chance to enjoy a broad range of leisure facilities and cultural attractions. If the surfboard is a vital part of your holiday, then make sure Spain figures in your travel plans.

Legendary locations

You can go windsurfing all year round in Spain. The pleasant year-round temperatures in the Canary Islands mean that you can sail whenever you want, while the beaches of mainland Spain are ideal from the beginning of April to the end of November, at the least. Spring and autumn are best, however, on account of the favourable winds and less crowded beaches. You will find a host of ideal places for windsurfing all along the Spanish coast. Nevertheless, there are certain locations with international renown, either for their windsurfing tradition or good access. This is the case of the Canary Islands, known as the Hawaii of Europe in windsurfing circles. Here you will find spots with perfect waves and almost year-round trade winds: in Gran Canaria, a destination that has produced many windsurfing champions, you will find the mythical Pozo Izquierdo, in the municipal district of Santa Lucía de Tirajana, 37 kilometres from the capital Las Palmas de Gran Canaria. Also outstanding are the beaches of Jandía in the south of the island of Fuerteventura, especially Sotavento in Pájara; while in Lanzarote the star is Las Cucharas on the Costa Teguise coast, just 7 kilometres from Arrecife. In Tenerife, a safe place for windsurfing is El Médano, in the south of the island.

Have fun learning too

Special mention should be made of Tarifa, on the southern coast of mainland Spain, known as the “European wind capital”. This area of the province of Cadiz has all but untouched beaches, an amazing atmosphere, and lives for windsurfing. The thermal winds of the Mediterranean coast make for more peaceful, leisurely sailing conditions, ideal to enjoy as a family. On the Costa Brava, the infrastructure of the Gulf of Roses area, in Girona, offers close to 12 kilometres of recreational beaches, although the prevailing north winds in autumn and winter also make it an ideal spot for windsurfing. On the Costa Cálida in Murcia, the Mar Menor area has ideal conditions to start learning how to windsurf. It has a complete Maritime Resort, with fifteen or so schools to perfect your style. These are just some of the most famous places to have fun with your board, but the list of spots apt for windsurfing in Spain is huge. El Ejido in Almería, la Lanzada in Pontevedra and Pollensa, on the island of Majorca are a few of them. Furthermore, in nearby towns and villages you will find numerous companies offering equipment hire and windsurfing schools. Don’t get left behind: whether you are a beginner or a pro, Spain is an unbeatable destination for windsurfing. We will be waiting for you.
