The type of beach cruiser you can rent is called blokart. It is driven by a sail and controlled by bike-like equipment. Five minutes of instructions and you will be ready to drive on a beginners field! They also have two-seated carts, for parents and smaller children to go together.
The kite-buggy is also three-wheeled, but it is controlled by your feet and driven forward by a parachute that is controlled by your hands. This is a more demanding, but also exciting type of beachcruising.

The wide beach, the firm ground and the stable wind conditions make Fanoe something special for the buggy drivers. People from all over Europe come here to exercise their sport.
