WINDS TO NAVIGATE.
-South: Wind is very rare especially in autumn and winter due to the passing of the storms, wind direction on-shore with disorderly waves. Navigation for beginners is not recommended.
-West: Predominant and better oriented wind on this year-round beach side-on shore. Depending on the intensity and the time of the year, there are usually waves. Highly recommended for all levels.
-East: Wind very present in the spring / summer months, side-off shore direction. It is a more demanding wind because of the intensity that is usually strong and gusty. The only advantage is that it allows to sail in conditions of flat water and without waves in the shore.
From time to time the direction of the Levant turns to the South-East giving us ideal conditions of constant side-shore wind and crystal clear water. During the summer months on the beach operates a rescue boat service for the rising days, the “Sea Angels”. It is possible to buy of 2 and 5 rescues at the price of 30 euro and 50 euro respectively.
