Located at Monolithos Beach, on the south-east coastline of Santorini island, this is an amazing hub for kitesurfing. In summer, the blowing Meltemi winds makes kitesurfing incredibly safe for beginners and on the other hand, just after 20 knots, advanced riders can also join in on the fun as the small reef creates fantastic waves. This explains why it has become the premier spot for kitesurfing in Santorini. The spot also attracts windsurfers and even surfer and SUP lovers. The spot is advantageous for kitesurfing, primarily due to good wind conditions. Situated at the airport area, next to Kamari beach, at a distance of just 9kms from Fira, SantoriniKite is extremely easy to access.
