Taxi-shuttle to kite beach

For kitesurfers we organise daily a 5 min taxi-shuttle to the kite beach.
Kite beach benefits from constant side onshore wind from left, flats and chops. The best wave conditions are between December and April.

The kite spot in Santa Maria

The wind is side offshore from the left in Santa Maria and we offer a shore break service and have a rescue boat on duty in case of an emergency. It is the ideal place to learn transition turns.
The bay of Santa Maria is located on the southern tip of the island Sal and the long, fine-grained sandy beach extends over more than 4 kilometers.

The kite spot in Ponta Leme

Ponta Leme gets side offshore/side shore constant wind, flat water, with some ramps on the outside. Launching is from our center in Santa Maria.

Downwinders from Kite Beach to Santa Maria dependent on the numbers

Flexibility

Therefore no matter which rental option you choose, you will always have the choice of several different boards and kites to use here at the ION CLUB Santa Maria.

A word about

ION CLUB Sal – Santa Maria

In the middle of the Atlantic, 1500 km south of the Canary Islands and 450 km west of the coast of Senegal, is the small island group of Cape Verde. Appearing almost insignificant, but very valuable - and not only for us windsurfers and kitesurfers. The seamen used the favorable winds of the Cape Verdes to cross the Atlantic Ocean long before us. In the late eighties, Club Mistral recognized the potential and benefits of Cape Verde and decided to stay on the island.

The small ION CLUB Center in Santa Maria is centrally located on the beautiful beach of the fishing town of Santa Maria. Due to its location the center is a great meeting point to decide where to go and which spot to ride for the day.  All our Kitesurfing guests would meet in the morning at the center and than either get a 5 minute shuttle to the kite beach on the windward side of the island, or kite right in front of the center. 

Windsurfers will enjoy our good windsurfing conditions and bigger choice of boards and sails at our other center on the other side of Santa Maria - ION CLUB Ponta Leme - (only 15 minutes walking distance). Here at ION CLUB Santa Maria, we are only using big boards above 148 liters, and only beginners lessons are available.  

BEST PERIODS

October

The spot in front of the ION CLUB Santa Maria is due to the conditions, side offshore wind from the left, only suitable for experienced kitesurfers.  ION CLUB guests can ride upwind from the Santa Maria center to enjoy the perfect flat water on the inside or the waves at the point. For less experienced kitesurfer we recommend to kite at Kitebeach (few minutes by Taxi; can be arranged with us).

HOW TO GET THERE ?

It is virtually impossible to get lost on your way from Almilcar Cabral Airport to Santa Maria, where the ION CLUB Center is located; after all, there is only a single road on the island, running in a north/ south direction.
Transfer from the airport to the hotels takes about 15-25 minutes.

A rental car is not at all necessary.

Turn left right after the “Enacol” gas station and follow the street all the way to the end. Then turn right and follow the road down to the beach and Angulo restaurant.
