The coastline from Punta Ala down to Monte Argentario is unique, apart from being beautiful it also has seasonal thermal winds that give passionate windsport people the ability to enjoy the coastline in a different way. Kitesurfing is practiced up and down the coast. Grab a board and a kite and enjoy the ride.

Location

In high season there are specific locations or “exit channels” where you can kite or take lessons. The Kite beaches are located in Puntone, Castiglione della Pescaia and Marina Di Grosseto.

It’s Important to kite only where you are allowed, this respects other beach users and also the kite beaches are located where there is the best wind!

Take a ride to the beach, but take man’s oldest form of personal transport. The Maremma has a long history with the horse, used for hundreds of years by “butteri” to herd livestock through the swamps and fields and woods. We took a ride with Cavallo Avventura to discover the beaches and woods around Punta Ala by a horse.
