Why you should go to Golf De Roses

On the wild coast of the Costa Brava, the beckoning sandy bay of Golf De Roses offers more than just great windsurfing. Here are 12 reasons why you should book your next family holiday to Golf De Roses today!


1. It is by far the windiest spot on the Catalan coast with great wind statistics during the summer months.

2. The surrounding region offers a number of cultural and archaeological sites and attractions that are just waiting to be explored.


3. The small former fishing village of L’Escala situated at the southern end of the bay offers a number of fabulous tapas bars, restaurants and clubs.

4. There is something for everyone to enjoy, from rafting and canoeing trips to cycling, hiking and climbing, making Golf De Roses the ideal spot for the entire family.


5. The windsurf school we work with offers a wide variety of water sports including SUPing and kiting and the new and generously proportioned spa with chill-out roof terrace is another highlight on the site.


6. The thermal cross-onshore winds which gradually increase in strength towards midday, make mornings in Golf De Roses ideal for entry level windsurfers. In addition to the light breeze, the gently sloping beach helps to ensure quick wins for young and old alike.


7. When the Tramuntana holds the stage, then the windsurfing conditions change radically with a strong north wind blowing from the Pyrenees side shore from the left with amazing waves for advanced riders – just be aware that your waterstart needs to be 100% secure. 


8. In 2017, the windsurf centre we work with will also be offering a photo service to capture the action out on the water.

9. You can combine your trip to Golf De Roses with some city excursions. Plan a trip to the Dali Museum in Figueres; visit the pretty town of Girona or spend a couple of days in Barcelona at the end of your holiday.

10. You can try airfoilsurfing! Planet Windsurf Holidays are one of the very first to offer courses in this sport in Golf De Roses, Spain and with just a light breeze of 8-10 knots, a professional instructor can teach you how to ride and fly three times faster than the wind.

11. Golf de Roses is the perfect spot for kids to learn windsurfing. With shallow water for about 50 metres, the morning conditions in Golf De Roses provide perfect, safe conditions for kids to learn. 


12. This stunning area can be reached within a quick two-hour flight from the UK.
