HOW DOES THE WIND BLOW? THE WESTERLY WIND PONENTE (W)

A wind that brings a lot of fun in autumn for windsurfing, when reaching a strong intensity on certain beaches. We are talking about the so-called Ponente, or Zephyr, which blows from the west.
Usually in the summer time it is perceptible as a sea breeze. It’s particularly present in the region of Tuscany and Lazio. Considering that it’s a wind that comes from the sea it always brings some humidity with it. Do not worry, even if the intensity is particularly strong, on Elba you’ll find plenty of sheltered places where you can relax and enjoy your holidays.
