Favored with shallow waters and steady winds, between 15 knots/27.78 kph and 25 knots/46.30 kph throughout the year, the location provides great conditions for this exciting sport. The ideal wind direction is from the southeast and the optimum period to visit the beach is winter. In addition, the water temperature varies between 24 °C/75.2 °F and 30 °C/86 °F.
Long Bay is an excellent spot to learn how ride waves or just improve your technique, due to flat waters and lack of currents.

Finally, there are many kiteboarding schools operating close to the site, where you can arrange lessons and gear rentals.
