Thanks to the beneficent influence of the Mediterran Sea, this site is suitable for acro all the year. Even in the winter, during the day the temperature could be much more than 10 degrees and thermalable days are quite often. But be careful, due to the microclimate, the wind’s direction could change fast after sunset. You reach the water at around 500 meters, but it's quite easy to get higher on sunny days.

Startplace: It’s accessible by car and than few minutes walk. The main take-off site is big enough for 4-5 glider and it’s covered by carpet.
Behind this startplace, there’s another smaller site for Eastern wind, suitable for 1-2 glider. (It ends in a precipice, so it’s not the best place for beginners.)

Landing: The official landing zone is on the beach. Do not land anywhere else (for example on a private golf-links), otherwise you have to pay penalty. It forbidden to fly over Monaco, the city.

Local Transport: there’s local transport, but it’s not regular. It starts from the parking, next to the landing area, and costs 6 euro/person (prize from 2004).
