The Lowdown 

Whatever your wishes or goals may be, this is a great place to learn and improve. The long sandy bay of the Golf de Roses on the Mediterranean coast, which is just 30km south of the French border, boasts ideal wind conditions, making it the perfect spot to practice windsurfing or wing-foiling in complete serenity.  

Conditions & When To Go

During summer, the thermal wind blows side-onshore from the southeast. Mornings usually begin with gentle airs – offering idyllic conditions for children and beginners, while during the afternoon, the wind often increases to 15-20 knots, transforming the Golf de Roses into a paradise for experienced windsurfers and wing-foilers, who can perfect their passion. The remainder of the year generally consists of the ferocious Tramontana or the south wind known as – Garbi, which creates conditions for expert riders. 

Local Spot 

It is undoubtedly the best spot along the beautiful coast of Costa Brava. Several sandbanks offer expansive shallow water areas – offering safety and security. During July & August, certain areas are restricted for specific sports. ION CLUB Golf de Roses segregates specific areas for windsurfing and kitesurfing  

About The Centre
The ION CLUB Golf de Roses is located at the southern end of the bay and offers windsurfing, wing-foiling and kitesurfing courses as well as equipment-rental for all three sports. Here beginners, intermediate levels and more experienced riders can easily progress.   

Where To Stay 

The Camping & Bungalow Resort la Ballena Alegre is the perfect place to stay. It offers all facilities directly upon the beach – allowing you to enjoy the perfect windsurf or wing-foil holiday without any preoccupation.
