The Windsurf Spot in Golf de Roses
Several sandbanks 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, the wind is generally lighter and great for kids or some Windsurf Foiling. In the afternoon the wind usually picks up turning the bay into a perfect playground for Windsurfers of all levels.
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.
