The car-free island of Hiddensee is an adventure playground for wave experts, especially with winds from the southwest to the north. In front of the natural beach, almost big waves start up for Baltic Sea conditions - in strong northwest winds, the green rollers build up to three meters.
The beautiful island of Hiddensee is located off the west coast of Rügen. With a travel time of about 1 hour, you can get to the island by ferry or a little faster by water cab preferably from Stralsund or Schaprode. Once you arrive on Hiddensee, you will find one thing above all, peace and quiet. Only a few cars, such as those of the rescue service and the fire department, are allowed. From this arises a problem, how do you transport your material?! For all those who do not want to drag there is a good alternative on site. The surf school in Vitte, located directly between the Bodden and the open Baltic Sea, opposite the old mill, rents everything your heart desires. Advanced windsurfers and kitesurfers get their money's worth with northwest winds on the Baltic Sea side. On stormy days, waves of over 3 meters can build up there. The spot is not recommended for kite beginners due to groynes and the shallow standing depth. As a special surfing vacation Hiddensee is definitely worth a trip, especially families and nature-loving water sports enthusiasts will find relaxation and peace away from the tourist crowds. The spot is suitable for wind directions from SW to N.
