between May and august, thermal wind blows almost everyday. the best time is in july.
usualy the wind is between 10 and 14 Knots and it picks up to 25-30 knots on some days. In winter between December and January we get very strong winds but not regularly with rain stroms. The Condition becomes Radical and only experienced sailors can sail.
The spot is one of the best wave spots on the Mediterranean when it functions well. Access to the water is not easy barefoot since it's slippery and rocky. ALL locals go barefoot but if your feet are fragile use windsurfing shoes.
