The Mar Menor near Murcia, Southeast Spain is a great spot... used to live near there. It's also known as "La Manga del Mar Menor" or "Isla del Ciervo". This is the current forecast: http://www.windguru.cz/int/index.php?sc=48829. (In Windguru the spot is called Los Nietos.) It's a landlocked saltwater lagoon and you can kite in any wind direction. It\s also cheap because of the crisis in Spain - especially renting a room/apartment.

Let me know if you need more info!

Prasonisi in Rhodes, Greece, where I live, has a flat side and a wave side some 150 m apart (you can walk from one to the other without landing the kite... :o ). Wind is really constant in the summer. Rescue available at a fee for the off shore flat side by the windsurf/kite stations. Cheaper than most places esp. mow that the crisis is on. No swimmers really (most of them have already been killed by kiters :evil: ). Sand everywhere, very safe to be dragged from the wave side to the flat side by a looping out of control kite :lol: . Come and visit! :thumb:
