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 south from the french border, has been a favourite spot for windsurfers for decades.
The ION CLUB Golf de Roses, at the southern end of the bay is situated between Sant Pere Pescador and L'Escala. The ION CLUB centre is located in the Camping & Bungalow Resort La Ballena Alegre Costa Brava. The campsite every year is the venue for the PWA Worldcup event taking place right beside the ION CLUB centre.
May, June, July, August, September
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.
On good days, impressive waves build up near the shore.
