In the middle of spring on the vast expanse of sand at Chatelaillon-Plage in Charente-Maritime, you need to turn your gaze upwards because it all happens up above as hundreds of kites of all shapes and colours soar over the blue waves of the Atlantic, offering wonderment and magic to children and anyone who remains a child at heart.
Mastering the wind to fly a kite high in the sky is a real art form, as the kite-flying specialists you’ll meet here will confirm! They come from all over Europe and sometimes even further, gathering here every year to share their passion with the cross-generational crowd who flock to admire their aerial exploits. And the great news is that instead of simply applauding them, you can also try out the tricky art of kite-flying yourself at one of the workshops. You can even make your own kite! A spectacularly unique event you won’t want to miss!
