Fuerteventura International Kite Festival 2022



It is nearly that time of year again for the kites to arrive in Fuerteventura, for the 35th year. The most colourful event of the year in Fuerteventura.

Fuerteventura International Kite Festival 2022 1

It is running for a week this year, from 7th to 13th November, although it will probably start slowly and build up to the final three days in Corralejo.

It is customary for the kites to be on Playa del la Concha in El Cotillo on the days leading up to Friday 7th when the festival moves to Corralejo.

This year the festival in Corralejo is moving from its usual home towards the southern end of the Dunes Beaches. It will take place on Playa Bajo Negro, which is basically the beach by the Riu Oliva Beach Hotel. It isn’t hard to find anyway as you just need to drive along the coast road until you see the many kites in the air.

You can find more information on the Kite Festival Website.

      Hi Frank. I have never bought a kite so I don’t know. Fuerteventura isn’t exactly a shoppers paradise so you may not be able to buy one. Perhaps if you go down to the dunes beach and speak to some of the kiters that are here for the festival then they may be able to help. Sorry I can’t be of more help.

I would not want to see it become another massive all-inclusive resort like some others as the village would be totally ruined. The three hotels in El Cotillo are all very different –…
