The beach is about 20-25m wide. Then there are trees and a small road. It's a stone beach. The beach is a bit small and not the best place for kitesurfing. The area to enter the water is limited by buoys to distinguish the kite area from the swimming area. It is therefore important to be able to stay upwind. It is possible to launch further up the beach, then you will have a long downwinder back to the kitecenter.
