The resort of Châtelaillon-Plage kicks off the summer season with its Kite and Wind Festival: 3 days of shows in the wind for the whole family, on the main beach. The unmissable events that have made this festival famous include free flying, Rokkaku fighting, night flying and kite-making contests.
Demonstrations are given by kiting enthusiasts: kites of all kinds, buggy kites, kite surfing, land sailing and mountain boarding. For some, this is also a chance to learn the basics of kite-flying at the kiting school. There are introductory sessions to get used to handling a kite, water sports and even introductory flights in a hot air balloon. There are also many activities for children.
