I stayed in porto vecchio(south east) last summer (high season) and will go back there this summer.
Kited in La Tonnara, Balistra and Piantarella.
Had gusty ofshore wind in Piantarella and some great days in La Tonnara (35 knot days) also Balistra is a very nice spot.
The other beaches are banned in high season i think.
Only been to the south... (best IMO) very nice place to be.
Regards,
Arjan

No, there was once ofshore wind in piantarella when i looked there, drove to La Tonnara and had onshore wind.
Take a look at the map (via kitebeaches ) for details.

check in with Max at piantarella windsuf / kitesurf.

He'll put you in the picture.
Piantarella for me was fantastic.
Tonnara is good too.
As is sant amanza and figari.

Say hi to him from his old student of 7 years ago - Ron.
