You can rent: scooters, cars, bicycles or take advantage of the scooter-sharing service.
What can I do in the evening?
There are tons of possibilities to spend the evening after a nice day of kiting.
Aperitifs or dinners directly on the lagoon or in the nearby cities of Trapani, Marsala, or in the suggestive Erice.
And once your stomach is full, enjoy the music in one of the many parties that brighten up the evenings.
Here you can meet and get to know kiters from all over the world.
Are there places to visit When there is no wind?
Of course, you will be spoiled for choice.
The cities of Trapani, Marsala, the Mozia or Trapani salt pans, the beautiful Erice, a trip to Mazara del Vallo.
And still many archaeological sites nearby for day trips.
A touch and escape in Favignana or a 2-3 day mini-cruise to see the other islands as well.
Many beaches with turquoise waters and white sand for swimming.
Itineraries for tasting local wines or a trip to the spa … in short, the only difficulty will be choosing.
