Description

Kitesurfing in Golf de Roses


In the Northeast of Spain, close to the French border, Golf de Roses is a fantastic destination for kitesurfing. It's a large bay with great water conditions: Near the wide sandy beach, the water is shallow and flat, ideal for beginners. Further out, experienced kitesurfers can enjoy the vast open sea, which is perfect for bump-and-jump riding.

In addition, Golf de Roses is blessed with very consistent thermal winds during summer, always blowing side-onshore. The crescent shape of the bay means kitesurfing here is absolutely safe, as there's always a piece of land to catch you when you happen to be drifting off.

All types of facilities are available for both wind- and kitesurfing, including schools, rental- and rescue services.

Climate

Golf de Roses is actually the windiest spot to be found on the Costa Brava. Winds are strongest in spring and autumn, but some days then have too strong winds. The best conditions are in summer, between June and September, when conditions are more gentle and more consistent. In this season, the water temperatures are between 20-22°C (68-72°F), so it's best to wear a shorty.
