Location

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.
