In the months of May, June, July, August and September, there are few beaches where is allowed to kitesurf starting from the beach (anyway, 200 m far from the beach is always allowed to kitesurf in all seasons): Porto Pollo in the North, Giorgino, Petrol Beach, Porto Botte and Punta Trettu in the south of Sardinia.
During the low season (months of October, November, December, January, February, March and April), kitesurfing can be done in freedom everywhere, even in spots like Villasimius and Chia.
During the summer season, among the best kite spots there are the area of Cagliari (Giorgino and Petrol Beach) and Punta Trettu (in the west coast of Sardinia).
