At Ocean Elements we design our holidays to work hard, so that you don’t ever have to. It’s why a holiday with us is created to give you as much (or as little) to do as you want.
Our beach clubs, with their swimming pools and beaches offer the perfect setting to shake off your cares and enjoy some serious downtime, on and off the sunlounger.
So put your feet up and enjoy these suggestions for taking it easy...
While everyone else hits the water, it’s time for you to hit the sunlounger - hard. Whether you prefer to be poolside or feel sand between your toes, our beach clubs have plenty of sunloungers (and plenty of sun). Or why not find a shady tree in the gardens and have 40 winks in the warmth of the afternoon? You’re on holiday after all...
If you’ve ever been to Greece before you’ll know how rich it is in history and culture. Places like Porto Heli (where our Nautica beach club is) are blessed with an abundance of amphitheatres and ancient ruins. We can organise tours with English-speaking guides to show you the beautiful local monasteries, wine museums (it’s a tough job but someone has to do it) and pretty harbourside villages.
We can organise a hire car for you if you fancy some freedom on the open road. A car can open up some of the most amazing and beautiful locations: from summit-perched Meteora monastery and the beautiful West coast beaches of Lefkas, easily reached from our Surf Hotel Beach Club, to the ancient ruins of Mycenae or Nafplion, (near Nautica Bay Beach Club), this is a land crying out to be explored on four wheels.
The crystal-clear turquoise waters of Greece are the perfect place for a leisurely snorkel. Pull on a mask and discover a beautiful marine world underneath the warm waters. Feeling adventurous? Snorkel round the bay to a local taverna for lunch.
If keeping active is your way to relax then our bikes are perfect for a casual cycle among colourful Greek villages, or we have mountain bikes if you’re on the hunt for some adrenaline. Our paddleboards are great fun and of course we have all the windsurfing and sailing kit you could want. Feeling stiff after all that lying about? Our stretch-and-relax classes are great fun too.
These do vary from resort to resort, but can include parasailing, waterskiing, wakeboarding and snorkelling.

From Porto Heli, there are regular ferry trips to the island of Spetses, with its superb beaches. Or if you’re staying at the Surf Hotel or Xenia, you can take a boat trip from Vassiliki town to nearby Cephalonia, Ithika or Meganissi.
Whether you just want to build up an appetite before dinner or do some serious hiking, all our resorts are able to offer impressive walks for the casual and more serious walkers. Stunning coastal routes wind through forests, olive groves and across headland, taking in small, colourful villages and sights along the way.
