During the last week of July and the first week of August every year, a round of the Kitesurfing and Windsurfing World Cup is held at Playa Barca, Sotovento. It’s held near the Rene egli windsurfing center, just south of Costa Calma.
It’s a free event, and there is a free car park. Marquees sell food and drink, and every night they have special music nights – bands, DJ’s etc.
