Mangalia is a historical city and a port, located in the southeast side of Constanta County and is bordered by the Black Sea. Widely known as a summer resort, Mangalia hosts beautiful beaches with fine white sand and clean waters as well as many cultural events and interesting historical sites, attracting both local and foreign visitors.

Mangalia offers a moderate maritime climate that features warm but not hot summers with an average temperature of 21 °C /70 °F and cool but not cold winters with an average temperature of 1 °C /34 °F. As the sea breeze gets stronger during the summer months and the sea warmer, kite-surfing has became a favorite activity for the locals.

The sandy beach is very wide and has designated areas for swimmers and water sports, so finding the perfect spot to launch your kite is easy. The sea is shallow and clean and has small to medium choppy waves.  The best season to kite-surf is from April to October, where the thermal winds provide with  ideal conditions for free ride and speed kite-surfing.

Mangalia Beach and the other beach resorts that are located on the north side of the city, such as Neptun, Jupiter, Venus and more, are part of the upcoming hot spots in Romania for kite-surfing, sharing the same weather and sea conditions with Mangalia Beach. So make your pick or visit them all and enjoy a long day riding the waves and the wind in the amazing sandy coast of Mangalia.
