A word about
ION CLUB Sal – Ponta Leme
In the middle of the Atlantic, 1500 km south of the Canary Islands and 450 km west of the coast of Senegal, is the small island group of Cape Verde. Appearing almost insignificant, but very valuable - and not only for us windsurfers and kitesurfers. The seamen used the favorable winds of the Cape Verdes to cross the Atlantic Ocean long before us. In the late eighties, ION CLUB recognized the potential and benefits of Cape Verde and decided to stay on the island.
ION CLUB Ponta Leme is situated on the east side of the bay of Santa Maria and is about 15 minutes walk from the ION CLUB Santa Maria. At ION CLUB Ponta Leme we offer windsurfing (lesson, rental, storage), Surf and SUP lessons and rental.
Please note that the windsurf rental is only for advanced windsurfers.
The cross-offshore or side-onshore wind from the left enables effortless upwind sailing to the various sections of the beach. From the ION CLUB Ponta Leme you can sail directly from the flat water section into the fantastic wave spot of Ponta Leme.
The best wave conditions are between December and April.
HOW TO GET THERE ?
From Almilcar Cabral Airport to Santa Maria
It is virtually impossible to get lost on your way from Almilcar Cabral Airport to Santa Maria, where the ION CLUB Center is located; after all, there is only a single road on the island, running in a north/ south direction.
If you take a taxi, give Santa Maria Angulo restaurant as your destination - the price is around 20 EUR. The Center is right behind the restaurant
If you have a rental car, simply drive in the direction of Santa Maria in the southern part of the island (a distance of about 20 km). Turn left right after the “Enacol” gas station and follow the street all the way to the end. Then turn right and follow the road down to the beach and Angulo restaurant. ION CLUB Ponta Leme is located on the left behind the restaurant.
