Vama Veche is a small village located on the lower Romanian coat on the Black Sea, close to the border with Bulgaria. Widely known as non mainstream destination, the village attracts visitors that are into free camping, nude swimming and non stop partying with many music festivals and events throughout summer.

Vama Veche has a moderate subtropical climate. Summers are dry and warm with an average temperature at 23 °C /73 °F and many sunny days from late May until mid September. On July and August the beach is covered with tents and bathers enjoying the loud music and the hot sun. Kitesurfing there during that time, is difficult because there is not enough space to launch a kite and the wind is not very good as it only has 5 to 8 windy days per month.

However if you visit in early spring or late fall, the winds are stronger and provide better conditions for kitesurfing.  The beautiful sandy beach is not yet crowded, so there is more than enough free space for kiters. The water is shallow and flat and it sometimes has small to medium waves when the wind is coming from North. Ideal for free ride kite surfing, Vama Veche is suitable for all skill levels. There are no schools operating on the spot, so it is best to go prepared in regards of gear. The beach provides facilities such as showers, beach bars, rest rooms and parking.
