A holiday to one of our Beach Clubs would never be truly complete without a paddle around the beautiful and calm bays in front of our hotels. We even include a free ‘Intro to SUP’ lesson to get you started. You can then grab a board from our racks whenever you choose and head out into the bay for a leisurely cruise or a workout!
If you’re new to paddleboarding, then fear not, our expert beach team are on hand to take you through your first steps on a SUP. Our complimentary 'Intro to SUP' session is not just for the beginners! It lasts for about 30 mins and will get you paddling in no time, teaching you some really useful paddle techniques.
During the session, you’ll be introduced to the different boards available, advised on how to safely fit a leash and buoyancy aid (if required), correctly adjust your paddle size and how to carry equipment to the water's edge.
Getting afloat, your instructor will walk you through some basic safety techniques before moving onto stable paddling positions, steering, paddle technique and strokes. Soon, you’ll be ready to paddle in your own time and head further afield to explore the coast!
Stand Up Paddleboards (SUPs) are fun for all abilities, great for kids and are surprisingly easy to pick up and get started on. SUP’s are perfect to use in the warm, clear waters that lap the shores in front of our Beach Clubs and provide a calming sensation of almost 'walking on water'.
Our guests love exploring the bay from a new perspective, learning a cool new sport and paddling for fitness. With or without the kids in tow!
We often use SUP’s with our beach fitness sessions and our sociable Paddle cruises, and SUP-Safaris are great fun.
Our boards are offered free for our guests to use. We have a great selection of the latest paddle boards from leading brands Starboard, Red Paddle and Two Bare Feet for you to play on, get hooked and go home with a new skill mastered.
These boards are stable, forgiving and easy to use for all ages. Guests in Porto Heli can try out the Ride XL ‘Giant SUP’ for plenty of fun with friends and family. We have a big range of boards and more importantly, the right variety to get you on the water and enjoying this fantastic sport.
Sign up for our popular paddle cruises and safaris which run from all centres and are always lots of fun for all ages! Grab a paddleboard or kayak and join us as we head out in the morning calm as a flotilla of paddle-craft to visit a local beach for snorkelling, or to stop for coffee and ice cream at the harbour.
It’s always a good giggle, very sociable and we have a support boat on hand to guide the paddle-fleet along. If you’re not a confident paddler, then don’t worry, our support boat instructor will provide tips along the way. Or why not join our (free) ‘Intro to SUP’ clinic to build your confidence beforehand?
We think that SUP’s are great in the morning calm outside our Beach Clubs, for a quick workout before breakfast. So grab a board from the racks and head out as the beach opens between 8.30 and 9am. We often run a Sunrise SUP session with a guide and instructor on hand to give you some tips along the way.
