The summer trade winds are accelerated by strong thermal action particularly during the spring and early summer when temperatures inland can be very hot. Generally the wind increases throughout the morning and by mid afternoon can often be blowing a solid 6-7 Bft. Between the months of October to April, Atlantic storms cause a little less consistent and predictable wind. Heavy tradewinds - esp. in summer.
Long wide beach where desert meets ocean... the beach is exposed to Atlantic swells, and is known to surfers - so expect waves, especially in winter.
