Colico is a city in Lombardy.
Windsurfing & Kite Surfing
There are two windsurf- and kitesurf-spots in Colico. The best is north of Colico train station. A small creek deliminates the windsurf- from the kitesurf spot. Until around 1 p.m. there is gentle breeze from the south without any waves, excellent for beginners. In the afternoon there is good north wind. There is good infrastructure (toilets, showers, restaurants and a gelateria). The beach itself is big with some shady places under the trees. Although the place gets crowded especially during the weekends, there is always enough place for everybody, even with all their equipment. For renting equipment see next section under Sun of a Beach.
The much smaller surfspot is at the Lido, south of the pier. For more information about rentals go to Bit of Salt in the next session.
Rent Windsurfing equipment
Son of a Beach (owned by Nautica & Sport SNC) offers windsurfing lessons for beginners in the morning (09:30). Price for 3 hours in groups of 4 to 6 including all equipment (including board, sail, wetsuit, lifejacket) is €55.
Please be aware the price listed on the website does not include the almost compulsory insurance of €5. Unfortunately the staff is not very friendly. The equipment is rather old.
The cheaper option is Bit of Salt, which is located in the Lido. They have less equipment, but most of it is very recent. The staff is very supportive and extremely friendly.
There are several small shops in town.
