Description of Nin (Croatia)

One of the top kite spots of Croatia, here you literally kitesurf in front of the village of Nin on a super flat water lagoon, formed by a long sandbank just between the medieval town and the sea.

The spot is perfect to travel with the family since it is a vast beach area where kids can have fun in complete safety, while parents can be on the water.

It is possible to kite on the flat water of the internal lagoon or jump on the chop of the open sea, by just walking through the sand bank.

The launching and landing area is really big and offers great space for beginners to learn to kitesurf safely.
