Viganj today has become one of the most favourite windsurfing and kitesurfing spots in Croatia, for surfers all over Europe and world. Sea channel between Pelješac and Korčula and the wind that blows in it,provides ideal conditions for windsurfing and kitesurfing. Such conditions are due to its position at the narrowest part of Pelješac channel in which the wind gets multiple acceleration.The wind tends to blow twice as fast as it usually does in the Adriatic.In the summer, mistral(northwest) is blowing and this wind is the best for enjoyments in this sports.Mistral wind is perfect,constant wind and usually starts around 12am and picks up from 02pm to 08pm, the average strength reaches 5 beaufort, and if you are happy, up to 7!
The water is light choppy with a little bit of current because this is a channel,but nothing special.You can enjoy the most fantastic scenery because you can ride to the island of Korčula and its really beautiful.It is not a sandy beach but it is very beautiful with a lot of kiters and windsurfers.The water is crystall clear.Morning is ideal for first steps due to light breeze, and the channel appears like a lake and gives a feeling of safety for beginners and children.In the last several years expansion of kitesurfing and windsurfing forms spectacular pictures in the channel.
All this enables ideal conditions for various competitions, it should be pointed out 1989 when the World Cup took place and 1990g. European Championship, in addition Viganj traditionally hosts the Open Championship of Croatia and Croatian Cup in windsurfing.This summer in july Viganj will host the Formula Windsurfing World Cup from8.7 - 13.7
On the main beach Ponta in Viganj you have a windsurfing and kitesurfing center,rescue service ,restaurant,toilet,beach bar ,everything direct on the spot.I would suggest you stay in VIGANJ either in a camping site or apartments,because everything is within 1km
