The crystal clear sea of the island, the shallow-watered shores, and the strong winds blowing near constantly make Paros an ideal location for kitesurfing. The northern 'meltemia' winds are especially strong during the summer, but Paros has steady winds and ideal weather conditions for kiteboarding throughout the entire year, with no rain and warm waters. Pounda beach is the most popular kiteboarding spot, with many facilities and clubs for surfers, offering storage, equipment for rent, and skilled instructors.
Pounda is frequented by experienced and Olympic category surfers, but has the perfect conditions for beginners who are just learning the sport as well. Santa Maria, Golden Beach, and New Golden Beach are also beautiful beaches with good conditions for kiteboarding.
