Kite Beach on the island of Sal is a Mecca for kite surfers. The beach became popular for kitesurfing and was then renamed accordingly. The beach is on the east coast of the island, close to Santa Maria. It is a great place to visit if you kite surf, or wish to learn this sport. There is a surf school there and a restaurant. It is also nice to visit just to watch and enjoy the colourful kites and enjoy a drink.
