Wind

Best Months:
January, February, March, April, November, December
Wind Type:
Trade
Best Direction:
NE
Main Direction:
NE

Wind is 4-6 Bft, trade winds, sometimes gusty. The season is November to April. The wind from the NE accelerates over the land and gives a gusty but kiteable cross off. Beware, it is cross off with no rescue, but there is enough cross within the bay to have the far point still downwind of you for most of your reach. A great beach when the forecast is light.
