                        A word about

                        ION CLUB Golf de Roses

                        THE Windsurf & Kitesurf Spot at the Costa Brava. A spot featuring the Tramuntana wind from the Pyrenees and steady sea breezes in the summer months. The long sandy Bay of Roses, on the Mediterranean coast, only 30 km away south of the French border, has been a favourite spot for windsurfers for decades.

                        The ION CLUB Golf de Roses centre, at the southern end of the bay is situated between Sant Pere Pescador and L'Escala. The ION CLUB centre is located in the 4-star campsite and bungalow park La Ballena Alegre Costa Brava. The campsite will be the venue this year again for the PWA Worldcup event taking place right beside the ION CLUB centre.

                        BEST PERIODS

                        May, June, July, August, September

                        WIND

                        In the warmer months, a thermal wind from the south east is the main wind in the Bay of Roses. The “Tramontana” 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. From May to September, the thermal wind is very reliable. While in the mornings there are usually light winds which offer the perfect conditions for kids, in the afternoon, it mostly increases and can reach up to 6 bft.

                        WAVES

                        On good days, impressive waves build up near the shore.

                        HOW TO GET THERE ?

                        From Barcelona or Girona

                        With your own or your rental car you get to the ION CLUB Center via the Highway (Autopista AP 7, French boarder - Barcelona).
                        Coming from France or from the Airports Girona (45 minutes) or 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 approximately 20 km.
                        Just before arriving in L'Escala you will find 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 roundabout 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”, this 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).

                        The story of the ION CLUB tells of people who have turned their passion for windsurfing and kitesurfing into a profession. Since its founding in 1985, customer orientation, team spirit, innovation and professionalism have been the top priorities of our corporate philosophy.
                        The ION CLUB / Club Mistral has gained a lot of experience in the 30 years of its existence and has developed more and more into a company that focuses on communicating with guests and fulfilling their needs and wishes.
                        With 16 water sports schools worldwide, we are one of the leading companies in this field. ION CLUB has a network of international partners in different countries. We strive to be international and multicultural and express this through the selection of our employees, who currently come from 24 different countries.
