Softer sand on the ocean sand, hard packed sand around the lagoons with a few pointy shells. Loads of space to launch and land all round.

April, May, June, July, August, September, October, November
Wind Type:
Thermal
Best Direction:
NW
Main Direction:
NW

Consistent NW thermal wind almost everyday in the summer. Generally 4-8 usually 5-6 Beaufort. Because it's a lagoon and you only really get one wind direction, it's side shore, onshore, and offshore depending on where you want to launch. Good all year, but best in the summer months (June to September).
