Vargas Beach: wind paradise in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria

The authorities of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria have proceeded to the closure of Vargas Beach, one of the best windsurfing and kiteboarding spots in the world.

Vargas Beach has been abandoned and forgotten by the governments for decades, but has been used by windsurfers for over 40 years. It is one of the most important spots in the island due to its conditions.

An ample beach, multiple wind and waves for beginners, advance or even professional windsurfers and kiteboarders. In fact, Vargas Beach and Pozo Izquierdo are the only spots available in the region for windsports enthusiasts.

Riders access these areas by already existing dirt tracks, being absolutely respectful with the rest of the surrounding areas. Their presence has actually helped in great measure to keep the place well protected from other illicit activities.

The new Coast Law will mean the stop of activity for businesses and private users of the beach. Sailors are aware that preserving this special natural environment and restrict its uses is necessary, for which we are totally in favor and available to collaborate.

But Vargas Beach is absolutely vital for these sports in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, making it very necessary to find an imminent legitimate solution that allows the use of our wonderful coastline.

Sign the petition to open Vargas Beach to windsports.

Whether you think of a kite as a wing or a sail, you want it to be lightweight, resistant, waterproof, but also stiff and flexible at the same time, so that they could respond to all flight requests.
