Costa Calma (Sotavento) is a quiet coastal town/resort located about 80 kms south of the airport in Fuerteventura. The South is quieter than the north with less tourism thanks to restricted development. The pristine white sandy beaches and dunes on the Jandia peninsular rival some of the worlds finest.
All guests stay in our budget apartments or more spacious bungalows in the resort of Costa Calma. Our Intermediate Windsurf Holidays in this area offer great value for money and are ideal for couples or friends who want to improve their windsurfing, enjoy the beach and the laid back Canarian pace of life.
Sotavento located on the outskirts of Costa Calma is considered as one of Europes best and most consistent windsurfing spots and in summer it hosts the annual Professional Windsurfing World Cup. The warm climate, consistent wind and variety of conditions make it a great all year round windsurf destination. The trade winds blow from as early as March through to Sept, summer is the prime season however thanks in part to the spot being located in a wind acceleration zone there is sufficient wind to run courses all year round.
As well as the long expansive beach the spot also benefits from having a large 3km shallow lagoon which provides ideal conditions for beginners/intermediates. Our intermediate windsurf program is aimed at people who have done around 30 hours of windsurfing and now want to progress further. Our aim is to introduce you to more advanced techniques such as fast tack, gybe, harness and beachstart. Everything you need to become a self sufficent windsurfer. After you have completed the course you can use the 10h windsurf rental card to rent equipment by the hour and practice what you have just been taught in the lagoon or in open water.
