Cartella Lagoon (Acquatina)
Water: Dark - Muddy
Description of Cartella Lagoon (Acquatina) (Italy)
This artificial lagoon is an amazing flat water spot when the Northwind (tramontana) blows. The lagoon is facing directly the sea and you can also have a wave session just by crossing a tiny stripe of beach sand.
The spot is quite safe even though some good wind days can get a bit crowded. But the lagoon is big enough to offer space to several riders.
No People on the Spot
Dark - Muddy
Shorty or lycra in summertime, normal wetsuit the rest of the year.
The occasional crowd and the lagoon bottom it is not very clean so better bring shoes
There are no special amenities right on the spot, but all the coast is a well-known touristic destination, so plenty of choice for food and accommodation. For great nightlife, the close city of Lecce is a must.
