Sardinia has four winds depending on the time of year. The Spring brings the Tramontana from North to East with 6 - 8 Beaufort. In the Summer the Poniente is South/West bringing 4-8 Beaufort, and in the Autumn the Scirocco from North Africa with 5-6 Beaufort, and occasionally up to Force 9.
Porto Pollo is located in the windiest point in Sardinia. The proximity to Corsica creates a funnel effect which brings winds that blow up to 8 Beauforts and over. Due to the structure of the two bays you can choose to surf in the protected safe conditions or risk the adventure of sailing in the channel where the waves crest as tall as a rig.
Sardinia is a stunning island and you must spare some time to see some of the amazing scenery, all within a few hours drive of Porto Pollo.
