Alvor Kite Center offer lessons from their experienced IKO and Portuguese Sailing Federation qualified instructors. The lessons take place in the lagoon where you are surrounded by nothing but sand and water (no buildings, trees, rocks, and other hazards). By the end of the course, students are usually up and riding short distances, already bitten by the kite surf bug!
The hostel is a walking distance from kite spots and the beach with solar energy warm waters and individual lockers. It has five double suite rooms, one women only suite room with five beds, one mixed room with six beds, in-room fans, individual balcony, and a shared toilet.

These accommodations are fully equipped with kitchen (dishwasher, washing machine, etc), flat screen TV, and maid service every day. There are three or five persons rooms available. There is also a refreshing pool and gym at your disposal.
Alvor Kite Center is located in a kite surf paradise that is the fishing village of Alvor in the Algarve, south of Portugal. With beautiful views over the harbor and river at sunset, Alvor is the ultimate European kite surf getaway you have been looking for.
Alvor has everything anyone could ask for, from a large flat water lagoon to a gently curving sandy beach. The lagoon is where most of the kite surfing takes place and is part of the Alvor river (Ria de Alvor). At different states of the tide, sand bars and even a little ‘desert island’ create super flat water, perfect for learning water starts or nailing that handle pass you’ve been working on.
With enough space to accommodate everyone who wants to ride, there are no crossed lines or near misses. Just next to the lagoon is the popular Alvor beach which every now and again receives nice fun little swells; so it’s time to grab your surfboard with or without kite and carve away. The prevailing cross offshore wind holds the face of the wave nicely and allows you to ride it with ease.
Daily breakfast is included in this package.
