English (Translate this text in English): Spot located right at the mouth of a “river”. To reach it it is enough to take a boat (or to ask someone: he will take you along without problem). Or if not, one can reach it by 4x4 but its not the best way. At low tide you can go directly from the beach on foot. But check it out when you're there. Then, if you want to know where it is, take a taxi from the city and to ask for “le club sogara” its right opposite. If you have questions: contact me!!

English (Translate this text in English): The light and hot wind F3 (with however some beautiful days of F4-5) in the rainy season (October-April) and in the dry season (fresher winds) F4-5 with beautiful F6 days. The wind is always directed SSW turning a few degrees about this orientation (eg SW-S) and thus the wind is always side-shore. Only default: its irregularity in rain season (much softer) even if it is well established in the dry season. One can note that from time to time from February to April “tornados” i.e. strong gusty winds coming from East or from the North can be relatively strong, gusting to 45knots for the best ones but in general it reaches about 25 knots. This wind, can generate good swells. But its strong gale sadly does not last a long time (45min to 5h for the longest) and not really recommended for kite as it is often accompanied by rain.

 Additional Information

English (Translate this text in English): The spot is ideal: Side Shore, cristaline water, hardly 30cm of water at low tide, 1m70 at high tide, only sand, hot water 30°C and + in rainy season, 25°C in the dry season. Also, the spot is located opposite the city, its enough to cross the bay (it is enough to ask and one lets you pass) one can also reach it on foot with the proviso of going there at low tide. It certainly is a PARADISE !!
