Why should you choose Punta Trettu?
As lovers of this sport, we have been lucky enough to visit some of the best kitesurfing destinations in the world.
We are very often used to thinking that we have to make very long and expensive trips in order to reach the spots of our dreams but in this instance, this is not the case.
Punta Trettu is strategically located in the middle of the Mediterranean Sea, easily accessible from all major European airports, and very inexpensive. With one or two hours by plane, you will reach Sardinia and have the opportunity to kitesurf at Punta Trettu, now considered by many to be Italy’s kitesurfing paradise.
The beauty of this place lies not only in the fabulous wind, climate, and sea conditions it offers but also in its wild spirit that still retains its peculiarities.
Unlike many places where mass tourism has distorted the connotations of the destinations, Punta Trettu has kept intact its soul of a spot that is still little frequented even in the high season, where one can feel free, breathe in the pure Sardinian air and find a true outlet in which to regenerate.

- The total absence of obstacles (which can pose a safety risk to kiters and students), makes Punta Trettu a true kitesurfing paradise in Europe and a must for those who want to take the best kitesurfing course in Sardinia.
