Discover the International Kite Festival of Fuerteventura
Since 1987, hundreds of kite professionals and enthusiasts gather in November at the Natural Park of the Corralejo Dunes in Fuerteventura, where white sand dunes meet the infinite shades of the blue sea.
For a week, the sky is filled with colorful and imaginative sails that dance with the wind, creating breathtaking scenes.
During the International Kite Festival of Fuerteventura, you can admire a lively multitude of kites in various shapes: fish, bears, dolphins, and animals of all kinds.
You’ll also find kites depicting cartoon characters or sails representing all sorts of objects: hearts, stars, rainbows, as well as witches, Minions, and superheroes.

Rediscover your inner child through kites
Flying a kite is a fun and educational way to spend time, especially when the alternative is lying on the couch with a device in hand.
And this applies to both young and old: running outdoors, playing with a simple kite, engaging with the wind, it’s an antidote to boredom, laziness, and indolence.
Above all, it’s a source of joyful images and sensations, laughter, and smiles that help us not take ourselves too seriously and bring out our inner child!
