Westerly winds with depressions. Best from fall to spring. Summer lighter. Nice NE and E winds in summer, but not very often. Works in all wind directions, but winds over land are gustier. Easterlies get accelerated so if Easterlies are lighter somewhere else on the island, get to this beach.

From Stralsund take B196 and B96 to Bergen, then to Sassnitz. Take L30 towards Sagard and Altenkirchen. In Luettkevitz turn right and follow the street to Danske. Once you reached the sign Danske, enter the village and drive for about 50m. To the right you will see an Apotheke (pharmacy) and to the left an Imbiss (fast food). Turn left. Drive about 100m towards a sea bridge. Once reached, turn right in a oneway called `Am Ufer`. After another 100m you will find the surf beach and park.
