From Malaga to Tarifa

  • Leave the airport, taking the E-IV motorway in the direction of Algeciras/ Cadiz. There are now two stretches subject to a toll (€E 10); they shorten the trip considerably as compared with the normal motorway, which takes approx. 35 minutes more.
  • From Algeciras, continue in the direction of Cadiz on the N-340, passing through some mountainous terrain; after about 20 km, Tarifa can be seen ahead.
  • To get to the windsurf centre, drive on past the town of Tarifa and after about 10 km the Hurricane Hotel centre can be seen on the left. After a further 5 km, turn left at the 100% Fun Hotel and continue on to the ION CLUB Valdevaqueros Center.


With your own or your rental car you get to the ION CLUB Center via the Highway (Autopista AP 7, French boarder - Barcelona).
Coming France or the Airports Girona (45 minutes) and Barcelona (1.5 hours), in any case you have to take the Exit 5 „ L`Escala / Empuries”.

  • Then take road G1-623 direction L`Escala for around 20 km.
  • Just before arriving in L `Escala you will arrive at a roundabout (right hand side: Tourism office)* on which you take the left turn to „St. Marti d`Empuries”/ „Platjas de St Pere Pescador“, from now on you are not anymore taking the road to L`Escala.
  • Now always straight, after 1km you will see the village St Marti d`Empuries on your right hand side. At this little round about continue straight.
  • You will drive over a little bridge and now you can see already the big yellow signs of the Camping “la Ballena Alegre Costa Brava”, that is the first camping on the right side. The ION CLUB Golf de Roses is situated on the right end of the Camping (view towards the sea).


If you are not housed in one of the bungalows of the Camping La Ballena Alegre, but in one of the hotels in the area, then please read the instructions for parking here:

During the off-season you can drive with your car onto the campsite premises because camping is not in use, and park directly behind the Club Mistral center. 
The barrier at the recepcion will open automatically. Follow the signs inside the camping area.
 During the high-season the camping is open. You cannot enter by car if you aren’t a client of the Camping. As a ION CLUB client you park your car at the parking in front of the reception free of charge if you present the Voucher at the reception of the Camping la Ballena Alegre.
You can walk through the camping towards the ION CLUB centre (only 5 minutes walk). The ION CLUB Team is happy to meet you during the opening hours.
