GOLF OF ROSES, SPAIN
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 of the French border, has been a favourite spot for windsurfers for decades. The ION CLUB centre is located in the 4-star campsite and bungalow park La Ballena Alegre Costa Brava.
Sea breezes (thermal winds) blow side-onshore from the right, gradually picking up during the day. As a general rule you can expect the thermal to get up to between 3.5 – 4.5 Bft, with good days blowing a steady 5 Bft (in knots 12/13 – 18-20 knots). Your best chances of catching the thermal winds are between May and September.
Known worldwide for its perfect windsurfing conditions, the Golf of Roses Bay is ideal for windsurfers from beginner to expert levels. That is also why the PWA has held events there for more than 15 years.
The center is situated directly on the beach, less than 30 meters from the water and open daily between 10:00 -18:00, depending if low or high season. We offer windsurfing and windfoiling rental and as well as semi private and private lessons.
Camping at la Ballena Alegre, distance to the ION CLUB center 10-150 meters. The Mediteraneo and Empuries Bungalows are situated right behind the centre and the beach. Ideal for Families, couples, groups of friends and right on the beachfront.
