BONIFACIO : La Mecque des sports de glisse en France ( Sud )

The Bonifacio area is widely known for its exceptional wind conditions, the beauty of its landscapes and its crystal clear lagoons where the wind blows in. Like all of southern Corsica, it benefits from a significant exposure to the prevailing winds. They make Bonifacio a magical area for wingfoil.
Indeed, the Bonifacio area is ideal for Wingfoil. We can count more than 190 days of wind, of force 4 or more, per year. It is one of the windiest places in Europe. The prevailing winds are from the West / South-West and East / North-East.

La Tonnara, located west of Bonifiacio, is a very famous kitesurfing spot. It is a real pleasure to sail there in Wingfoil. Indeed, the spot offers incredible wind conditions. Depending on the conditions, it can be perfect for beginners in wingfoil, or it can be a great place for the more experienced to have fun. Considered as one of the best Wing Foil spots in Corsica, La Tonnara gives access to the Gulf of Venegna. A great spot in deep water which benefits from regular winds.

15 minutes north-east of Bonifacio is the beach of Balistra, a magnificent wild spot. The water is flat but the west wind can sometimes be strong and offshore. In these conditions, this wingfoil spot is recommended for experienced wingfoilers. However, there is a very shallow pond just behind the beach, which allows beginners to wingfoil safely.

The spot in the Gulf of Figari is a large, safe and easily accessible bay. It is a perfect spot for beginners and intermediates in wing foil. It is also suitable for advanced riders who can leave the bay to benefit from a stronger wind and more space.

Finally, in the vicinity of Bonifacio, there is the famous lagoon of Piantarella. With its white sandy beach and shallow waters it is a very famous wingfoil spot. The westerly wind that blows into the mouths of Bonifacio creates superb sailing conditions for Wing Foil. Be careful though, in the summer season the lagoon quickly becomes overcrowded.

Located in the east of Corsica, a little higher than Bonifacio, the beach of Santa Giulia, which borders Porto-Vecchio, is one of the best spots for Wing Foil and SUP in Corsica. The beach is characterised by its translucent, flat and very shallow water. With a north-east wind most of the time, this beach will be a paradise for wingfoil beginners.

There is something for all tastes and all ages! Their team of enthusiasts and professionals are there to help you make the most of these water sports.
