The South of France with its the Mediterranean Sea and the famous Mistral wind is a perfect place for wind sports. Kitesurfing and windsurfing are highly popular sports especially in the South of France where there are multiple schools and shops to learn and buy or rent equipment from. There are over 600 kilometres of coastline in Provence, which means you can find a spot that perfectly suits your interests. Like L’Almanarre, which has long been considered one of best windsurfing locations in France or the Camargue Regional Park, where you can peacefully camp and surf. Then there's Saint-Laurent-du-Var, perfect for beginners and intermediates if the weather conditions are good. And, of course, there's Saint-Laurent-du-Var, an artificial lake surrounded by mountains with some great flat water and really cons​istent wind. If you're planning a holiday, consider coming to Provence for some fun and intense kite or windsurfing.
