About the Beach Club

Nautica Bay is found in the cosmopolitan, chic harbour town of Porto Heli, known as ‘Heli’ to the locals. It’s a fantastic sailing centre for all abilities as well as famous for its local biking. It’s also an area brimming with local culture, sandy beaches and ancient history. Expect a holiday with as much to do off the water as on it! We think it’s great for families and guests wanting plenty to do and explore.

Nautica Bay is a 4 Diamond rated hotel with lots of great facilities. Discover and enjoy its extensive gardens, swimming pool, crazy golf, tennis courts and beautiful sea views wherever you look. Its gardens lead down to a private sandy beach with sun loungers, a beach bar and our very well kitted water sports centre, packed full of the latest gear for you to try out.

So, whether you want to switch off or jump on-board, you’ll be in your element ! And 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 : hanging out with new friends and learning new sports while you have a well-deserved breather!

All included

Porto Heli is basically heaven for the sailor in your family. As our specialist dinghy sailing centre, it offers you the really excellent sailing conditions you’d expect, as well as our biggest range of boats to play with.

If you’ve ever wanted to learn sailing or windsurfing (or both!) or to progress your skills, this is your chance! We’ve got a crack team of expert RYA instructors teaching our (free-and-inclusive) beginner Start Sailing and Start Windsurfing lessons. They’ll help you rig up, get launched and free-sail our great kit all week; or coach you some more if you choose to take further tuition. We offer RYA courses for sailing and windsurfing (beginner to advanced) which follow the Ocean Elements ‘Fast Forward’ coaching technique with low groups sizes of (max) 6 guests.

Don’t forget our paddle-boarding and kayaking and our excellent Kids Clubs are also inclusive and designed to get everyone on the water, whether you’re a dyed-in-the-wool water-lover or you love to mess around on the beach. We also offer Youth Squad for more dedicated coaching for your sailing young guns, which follows the RYA syllabus.

Still hungry for more? You can pay a little extra to water-ski or wakeboard or even take a motorboat out in the bay.

Wind & sailing conditions

Porto Heli is a natural harbour with a sheltered bay and reliable thermal winds, all of which deliver gentle conditions in the morning and more exciting sailing and windsurfing in the afternoon which will get boats and boards ‘planing’ on most days. It’s a perfect venue whether you choose to relax or get active this summer, and our fun, sociable paddle cruises, dinghy cruises and dinghy races are not to be missed.

Activities on the shore

The area has as much to do off the water as on it! Try some incredible mountain biking on single-track pathways and coastal roads with steady inclines and exhilarating downhill. We have a fleet of Specialized bikes, there’s biking to suit every rider and we offer guided rides each day.

Why not try a game of tennis at the hotel or put your putter to the test on some crazy golf or adventure further afield on a boat trip to nearby islands like Spetses or Hydra.

Perhaps hire a car or moped from reception and take a day trip somewhere fantastic: the ancient walled city of Haliesis, Epidavros and its ancient amphitheatre, the pretty village of Ermioni or visit Nafplion with its fantastic 13th century citadel.

About the hotel

You’ll be spoiled for choice with plenty to do both on and off the water at Nautica bay, with its outdoor swimming pool, tennis and crazy golf. Let our hotel reception help you organise daytrips and boats trips to the areas nearby cultural exhibits.

Each bedroom has a balcony and you can see the crystal blue waters from most of them. All rooms have tea and coffee-making facilities, air-conditioning, satellite TV (with some English channels), a fridge and an en-suite bathroom with shower and WC. We also have family suites with inter-connecting rooms so you can all be together.

Food and drink

At Nautica Bay we upgrade your mealtimes for free. We call it Club Board. Think of it like half board where you can enjoy our hearty cooked and continental breakfast buffet each day, a 3-course evening meal from the buffet for five nights and one lunch, PLUS our fantastic end-of-week BBQ. The beach bar serves drinks and snacks all day (paid for locally).

Location

Porto Heli is about 2 hours and 30 mins drive from Athens or Kalamata airport. Don’t worry, our coach is air conditioned and you can use the journey to start planning your activities with our reps, who’ll meet you at the airport and be on board for the transfer.

The harbour-town of Porto Heli is about a 10-minute walk along the seafront from Nautica bay. It’s a pretty walk and you’ll discover plenty of bars, shops and affordable tavernas.

Our hotel fronts onto a beautiful bay with sandy beaches dotted around its fringe, but the area also offers many more secret beach spots reached by moped, bike or even paddleboard.

The Resort

Found at the southern tip of the Argolis Peninsula, Porto Heli is a chic harbourside resort with colourful cafe culture and white sandy beaches galore. Heli has a wide range of sights, tours and excursions as well as great biking and walking its idyllic coastline, all with the Med's famously crystal clear blue waters lapping the shoreline.

Nautica Beach Club has its own Ocean Elements specialist sailing centre, with free RYA coaching all week catering for all abilities. We offer a huge fleet of boats, day yachting and fantastic windsurfing which suits everyone up to ‘intermediate non-planing’ standard.

There are plenty of places to hire motor boats (there’s one moored just by the beach club!), 
or we can sort out hiring a car or moped so that you can sample the array of historic sites, ancient ruins and cultural excursions.

If you feel the urge to explore beyond the coastline, then Porto Heli offers a huge treasure trove of excursions and you’re perfectly placed to discover classical Greece including Mycenae, Epidavros, Athens and the islands of Poros, Hydra and Spetses. Feel free to take one of our hire bikes with you if you are thinking of some island hopping...

Perfect For all The Family

We pride ourselves on being a big hit with families, and the Nautica is no different. It’s especially suited to families with its large, you-can-run-around-in-them grounds, its kids-size swimming pool (with one for adults too, naturally), crazy golf, playground, tennis and our Active Kids Clubs, plus a raft of shore-based activities and plenty of cultural history to keep the most imaginative historians in your family happy!

Kids will love our free Active Kids Clubs and we’ll make sure they have a great time in ‘Sea Urchins’ and ‘Tigers’ from 4 up to 13 years old getting active on the water with sailing and windsurfing tasters

Our excellent Youth Squad is a dedicated RYA coaching programme for 8-13 year olds that’s great for budding sailors and windsurfers, and is charged as a supplement. The over 13’s can join our free ‘Start Sailing and Windsurfing’ lessons and use our great kit all week

Heli itself is the perfect spot for kids to get to grips with the water. The gentle conditions in the bay each morning ensure everyone gets more than enough water-time. The waist-deep teaching area means it’s ideal for kids to learn sailing, windsurfing and paddle sports in warm, clear waters.

Porto Heli is dotted with beautiful beaches, bays and inlets offering perfect swimming, sun bathing and snorkelling.

Try Foiling

If you can blast in a Laser, then you should be able to foil with us at Nautica bay this summer! So join our expert RYA foiling instructors and learn to foil on our RS Aeros and Lasers with GlideFree foils. More on foiling >

For reliable wind conditions

Expect light winds in the morning that should provide beginners and families with the perfect place to learn. The thermal winds build slowly after lunch giving a Force 2 to 4 cross-shore most days.

Most days will see ‘planing conditions’ for our performance dinghies and windsurfers; and we often extend our sailing area further out of the bay to get stronger winds for the advanced sailors. If windsurfing is your thing and you are a high-level intermediate, you might like to try our centres in Vassiliki and Kos .
