Kos

On the beautiful Greek island of Kos is our new Akti Beach and 5* Akti Palace. Two great clubs nestled on the shores of a beautiful stretch of sandy beach, in this mecca for watersports. Both clubs offer the ‘ULTRA’ All Inclusive package (food & drink 24/7) which is a very worthwhile upgrade as they win such high praise for their catering.

Kos is famous for its sailing and windsurf conditions (for all levels) and so you’ll be pleased to find a fully stocked Ocean Elements Watersports and Activities centre waiting for you to enjoy, with all the inclusive activities you’ll ever need. So, take out our watersports kit for a spin round the bay or join one of our free Start Sailing and Windsurfing lessons and we’ll show you how.

Still hungry for more? Then try the clubs’ own aerobics, yoga and fitness classes. Also Try Scuba diving and even archery sessions and don’t forget our own (guided) bike rides and the impressive spa and wellness facility onsite. You can do it all safe in the knowledge that your kids are having the time of their lives in our brilliant Active Kids Club.

About Kos

Kos is one of Greece’s fabulous Dodecanese islands. Islands which are known for their abundant sandy beaches, reliable winds, (calm in the morning and stronger in the afternoon), and incredibly clear ‘emerald-colour’ waters which make swimming and bathing a dream.

With a coastline that stretches over 290 kilometres, Kos has more than enough sandy beaches - from white sand hideaways and hidden coves to golden sand beaches with beach-bars and water sports.

Inland, the island is dotted with colourful villages, party towns (with English pubs and clubs) where they dance all night.

Kos Resort

Akti beach offers the perfect base to see the best sights of the island. Grab one of our mountain bikes or rent a car or moped from reception and you can explore to your heart’s content.

Alternatively, just stay onsite for your week (like many people do) because there’s more than enough inclusive activities to get stuck into.

You can visit its many ancient landmarks, villages and beaches, or discover the lively town of Kardamena, just a short bike ride away. Our clubs have as much to do off the water as on it!

Kos Wind & Conditions

Typical pattern:
  • Mornings: F1-2
  • Afternoons: F4-7

Each day in this sailing paradise starts the same: The morning eases in with a gentle on-shore Force 1-2 breeze and very calm water. This is perfect for families and beginners learning to windsurf and sail, or to go paddleboarding and water skiing, (payable locally). It’s also a good time for the experts to try out new kit or moves.

The thermal wind builds slowly around lunchtime and remains very manageable offering fun sailing for all levels into the afternoon. Around 2pm the wind builds again – giving even more exciting conditions for windsurfers and sailors. Our formula of top-notch equipment and expert RYA instructors will ensure most sailors (improver and up) can continue sailing all afternoon.

For Health & Relaxation

Meanwhile for those who don’t want to spend time in the water, there’s always something going on in the beach club. Try the centre’s own aerobics clubs with Aqua Zumba, Stretch-and-Relax, Yoga, Pilates and much more.

If you fancy something more sedate then head to the Spa, (Akti Palace), it’s volcanic pool, gym and therapies are simply divine. There’s alternative activities like archery, Scuba diving, tennis and lots of kids play areas. If you like biking then you’ll discover lots of great trails, so grab one of our (all-new) Specialized bikes and go for a family cruise or a downhill blast.

If it all sounds like too much? Then it’s time for you to hit the sun-lounger - hard. Akti beach and Palace have lots of swimming pools and sun bathing with all-inclusive cafes and beach bars. Here, relaxation is a serious past-time.

Kos for Windsurfing

Kos needs little introduction to the world of windsurfing. It’s one of the most famous places to Windsurf, a veritable mecca for the sports’ practitioners! But that doesn’t mean it’s only for the experts. In fact, beginners are just as well suited to Kos. Its reliable thermal winds promise gentle conditions each morning before they switch on like clockwork each day to offer more thrilling (but manageable) sailing for intermediates and up.

Our water sports centre has a great range of boards and some of the best tuition and windsurfing of all our clubs, alongside Vassiliki. We offer a free Start Windsurfing lesson which should be enough to get even the complete beginners up to a standard where they can free-sail all our great kit for the week.

Our beach team will be on hand to help you rig and get launched whenever you choose to sail and to provide some further coaching if you choose. Try our RYA courses for windsurfing (beginner to advanced) which follow the Ocean Elements ‘Fast Forward’ coaching technique with low groups sizes of (max) 6 guests.

Or check out our ‘First Flight’ foiling course which suits confident intermediate windsurfers or our Level 4 modules if you want to learn advanced moves like waterstarts, carve gybes and bump and jump.

Kos for Dinghy Sailing

As you might expect, Kos is an excellent sailing area too, in fact one of Europe’s finest - for all levels - which means we have a great sailing programme and range of boats for you to use.

Make use of our free ‘Start Sailing’ lesson which should be enough to enable everyone to free-sail all our great kit for the week. Then, if you want more tuition, let our crack team of Royal Yachting Association (RYA) instructors take you through an RYA course (Levels 1-3) using the Ocean Elements ‘Fast Forward’ coaching technique. See all our tuition options.

If you want to brush up on your advanced techniques then we’d recommend visiting our Specialist Dinghy Centre in Porto Heli but we do have a good range of performance craft in Kos, which is free to use all week and the wind is perfect for experts who like to sail fast!

Perfect for all the family

We pride ourselves on being a big hit with families and the great thing about Kos is that its not only all-inclusive, but it’s all onsite too. In fact, everything you’ll ever need to entertain your brood (from 2 years to 70 years) has been thought of and provided for, free of charge.

You’ll try aerobics, archery, water sports, biking, scuba, family fun events, tennis, volley ball, football, playgrounds aplenty and our excellent (free) Active Kids Clubs for ‘Sea Urchins’ and ‘Tigers’ from 4 to 13 years. There’s even a teen club too (run by the centre) which’ll help them break the ice with other teens’ in the club.

Our excellent Youth Squad is a dedicated RYA coaching programme for 8-13 year olds that’s great for budding sailors and windsurfers. Ages 14+ can join our free adult Start sailing and windsurfing lessons.

Our beach is the perfect spot for kids to get to grips with the water, go for a paddle or try some water sports. The gentle conditions in the bay each morning ensure everyone gets more than enough water-time, and the waist-deep teaching area and warm waters mean it’s a doddle to learn and you’ll be wanting more (not less!) and that’s a guarantee!

The (very) short transfer from the airport is always popular with little travellers (less than 15mins) and the wide range of family rooms and suites we have to offer will ensure you get exactly the facilities you require to make your holiday as enjoyable as possible.

If you’re travelling with babies or toddlers don't forget to ask about our baby packs with cots and high chairs. There's a crèche and kids play area where you can make feeds, warm milk and play with your toddlers.
