Fuerteventura is the second largest island of the Canary Islands and is located about 120 kilometers west of the Moroccan coast in the Atlantic Ocean. After about 4 hours flight-time from mainland Europe, you arrive at the airport Fuerteventura near the island's capital Puerto del Rosario.
Approximately 50 kilometers south of the airport are the René Egli Center at the northern end of the miles of beautiful white sand-beach of Sotavento, a landmark of Fuerteventura.
This part of coastline is one of the most beautiful beaches in Europe and guarantees for a relaxing holiday. The extensive sandy beach provides ideal conditions to launch and land the kite, which contributes not only to comfort but also for safety. The 4 star Hotel Melia Gorriones is only 200m away from our centers.
Due to the unique wind- and waterconditions, the annual World Cup Fuerteventura Grand Slam for windsurfing and kiteboarding is held here for more than 28 years.
