We heart a lot about surfing Hyères but also mixed information on where to surf and to kite.
There are suppost to be 250 wind days in this part of France but we have bad luck. Almost no wind for kitesurfing. This is why we decided to learn to surf a foil.
So there are two kitespots.
Plage de l’ Almanarre
This beach on the westside of the peninsula locates a kite beach where you can safely launch your kite. Plenty of space reserved for kitesurfing.
The wind seems most of the time to come from the west. So onshore on this beach.
The sandy beach is getting deep within 20 meters. So no shallow kneedeep kitesurfing here. But the water is crystal clear. After you launch the kite you need to get out of the by buoyens demarcated 300 meter area. From there you are free to go.
Parking is done next to the road but officially motorhomes are not allowed. We parked everyday without a problem.
There are no facilities at this strip so bring your own food and drinks.
Le Gapeau on the east side
On the east side, north of the airport is a kitespot also. Same system as on the westside.
Plenty of parking space, but only for vehicles not higher then 1.9 meters. On the roadside are a couple of large places to park next to the road behind a busstop.
This area has trees and shadow and a nearby tourist village to buy beverages.
