Several sand banks in the water turn the spot into a “semi-shallow water area” with the huge, fine sandy beach sloping gently into the water. In the morning, when the wind is light, the spot is a paradise for kids and beginners. Thanks to the cross-onshore wind nobody can drift; nevertheless our life boat is always ready. Here, beginners, intermediates and experienced windsurfers can easily make progress. In the high season months (July and August) signs and buoys clearly mark the windsurfing and kitesurfing areas so that nobody gets in each others way. Swimmers can enter the water on the left hand side of the windsurf zone.
Golf de Roses is the perfect spot for kids instruction. The water is shallow for about 50 meters. In the mornings there are light winds which offer the perfect conditions for kids. The wind is side onshore, that means very safe and the kids do not have to be afraid to drift to the open sea. In the warmer months, a thermal wind from the southeast is the main wind in the bay of Roses. During the last few years, the southwind “Garbi” has blown more often, and increases the thermal effect. The “Tramuntana” from the north normally blows in the cooler months, however, it can also create strong winds in midsummer for days. In front of the ION CLUB center it blows sideshore from the left. On good days, impressive waves build up near the shore. From May to September, the thermal wind is very reliable. It happens more and more often that the wind turns in the late afternoon to sideshore from the right and reaches up to 6 Beaufort.
