Flag Beach is a long sandy beach about 4km from Corralejo , looking out towards Isla de Lobos. It's the main spot for kitesurfing on the island.
I 2 93fdaf0953d32c43159afd4e568d05ab2b91fde409fd0e489dac2b72ed065ef3 Wind condition
The big high pressure over the Atlantic and a low over the Sahara in the summer give reliable cross-shore winds at Flag Beach.

This is the place to be for some fun in big waves. El Cotillo is an all year around spot with smaller waves from June until September and some real big swell during the winter months.
I 2 93fdaf0953d32c43159afd4e568d05ab2b91fde409fd0e489dac2b72ed065ef3 Wind condition
A north-northeasterly wind works best here. Wind can get strong (above 20 knots) and gusty.
I 3 3f9f00e280ed1cf3094e01193787fb9944dc22afff4d561a420394facceab773 Water Condition
Powerful sideshore beachbreak and nice long waves. High tide is normally best.

In winter, the sandy bottom is very much washed out, producing powerful waves and new currents. Waves close out quite often when an overhead swell arrives. Not recommended for beginners!
