Fuerteventura International Kite Festival 2017

In 2017 the International Kite Festival in Fuerteventura will celebrate its 30th edition since it first launched in 1987.

Fuerteventura International Kite Festival 2017 - 9 to 12 November 2017

Location: the dunes inside Corralejo Natural Park

The event is aimed to attract both amateurs and professional kite pilots, so if you are passionate about kite flying this is the place to be.

Also, if you happen to be on holiday in Corralejo at that time (or anywhere else on the island for that matter) it is worth it to come and see the amazing kites flying over the sand dunes, with the Lobos Island and the turquoise water in the backdrop.

In the last years the Kite Festival in Corralejo - Fuerteventura has attracted a lot of attention from the Spanish press and international as well, which has led to the growth of this event.
