Kite Club Corfu (KCC) is on the south-west coast of Corfu, on the beach in the Chalikunas conservation area
The beach boasts daily North Westerly winds, perfect for kiting. It’s mile long stretch and shallow gradient makes it safe, giving virtually unlimited freedom for speed and tricks, and also makes it much easier for beginners exercises such as water starts and body tracking. The beach is very wide and flat, and free of sunbathers making launching, landing and flying exercises a piece of cake.
Our beach, Chalikounas, was named one of the best post-pandemic in Europe in this recent Forbes.com article.
The newly built station provides ample storage for equipment, an onsite shop, all necessary training equipment and shade if required. We have areas to chill-out and relax, and if you fancy a Mojito or an ice cold beer after a hard day of kiting, next to us we have a ‘Caribbean style’ beach bar open through the night.

It is approximately a mile long, with a 50 m shallow sandy gradient making it exceptionally safe, and ideal for kitesurfing. It is long and exposed, with a regular Northwesterly wind.
