A WORD FROM THE MANAGER
“Costa Calma is located in the south of Fuerteventura island. In this touristic town, you will find all the services you can look for : many hotels, shopping centres, restaurants, bars and shops. ION CLUB Costa Calma stands close to most hotels. There is also a beach bar just next to the centre where you can go for a refreshment in between your sessions. In Costa Calma which translates to “Quiet Coast”, most of the year we have side off-shore wind and that means that the water is flat, perfect for beginners, freeriders and slalom riders. In the winter we tend to have a couple of days with on-shore conditions, in those times you can catch a few waves at the spot for a change. For light wind days, we offer windsurf foil. For flat, sunny days without wind, you can use our SUP boards, and ride along the sandy shore watching the turtles through the clear blue water. We are looking forward to seeing you in ION CLUB Costa Calma!”

Best spots in Fuerteventura
You will find ION CLUB Costa Calma directly in the middle of the huge sandy beach of Costa Calma, in front of the Hotel Monica Beach. Enjoy the unique comfort of this spot, as it is only a short walk away from most of the hotels. Besides the advantage of short ways between accommodation and center you will find brilliant windsurfing conditions, especially for beginners in the morning and for intermediates and freeride sailors during the day. In the morning, starter lessons will normally take place in calm conditions with almost no waves disturbing. Once the wind machine of Fuerteventura is turned on, Freeriders will find excellent flat water conditions to speed up.
RISCO DEL PASO
The windsurfing speed track in Risco del Paso in front of the center really lives up to its name. Depending on the tide there is a large shallow area in front of the center, which is superb for intermediate sailors to practice waterstarts and jibes. Another advantage when the tide is up are two shallow water pools which are used for beginner lessons, giving the students a very safe feeling.
More windward of the center at Risco Del Paso, there is a nice wave sailing spot with waves up to a maximum of one meter. It is brilliant for those who want to make the first steps in wave sailing as the waves normally break very smoothly and the sandy bottom is harmless.
May, June, July, August, September
The main direction of the wind is cross-offshore from the left. Due to the hotels the wind is quite gusty for the first 100 meters. Further out the wind is more constant and ideal for freeriders and bump & jump. During summer the wind can easily pick up to 30 knots outside, but at the beach most of the time the conditions are suitable for beginners and intermediate windsurfers thanks to wind protection from the hotels.
At low tide you can easily stand for the first 30 meters as the sandy beach drops down smoothly. At high tide it gets deep after the first 10 to 15 meters. In the afternoon you can find a harmless little beachbreak due to the sandy beach. Directly in front of the center there is a sandy 40 meters entrance reserved for windsurfers. No waves at Costa Calma center! Better at the Risco del Paso center.

WHAT TO DO AROUND FUERTEVENTURA?
A short off-road trip away from Costa Calma, you can find a small town called Cofete, it is situated in one of the natural park of Fuerteventura. After enjoying a panoramic view of Fuerteventura’ s south coast, you can enjoy some of the typical canarian dishes in the local restaurant.

For hiking fans, Fuerteventura has a few things to offer, one of them is the so called “Baranco de las Peñitas”. After a walk through the volcanic rocks, where you will see a few of the local chipmunks and goats, you will find a “rock window” through which you have a nice view of the mountains.
