Description of Alaçati South Wind Spot (Turkey)

Alaçati is one of the most glamorous vacation places in Turkey and historically used to be a windsufring hotspot. With the rise of kitesurfing of course it became popular for kite too. This spot is very close to the village and wirks very well with south wind. Not very often the winds blow here in summer season since the seasonal winds come from north west. But if the conditions are good, the lagoon is whide, with shallow water and great conditions.
