About our Beach Club

Read our review: Yachts & Yachting >

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 the latest water sports equipment, 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!

Nautica Bay - What's Included

Activities 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 delivering water sports tuition all week and our beach team will help you rig up, get launched and free-sail our great kit all week whether you are in a lesson or not.

We include a 3 hour starter lesson (on the water) for beginner sailors and windsurfers; and those of whom may need a little ‘brushing up’ in order to use our beach kit all week. We also run daily skill clinics (which are shore based) for more experienced sailors and windsurfers covering everything from tacks and gybes to spinnaker handling and water starts on your board. We provide safety boat cover on the water all day, so you can just enjoy the sailing whilst our expert team are close at hand.

Don’t forget to try paddle-boarding and kayaking; and our free ‘Intro to Paddle sports’ lesson will get you started - even if you are a beginner. The warm sheltered waters are also ideal for our popular Active Kids Clubs which give younger club members a taste of sailing or paddle sports and are also free-and-inclusive for all guests. Also on offer is our excellent RYA Youth Squad which gives dedicated coaching for young guns and kids who want to learn the ropes fast!

Still hungry for more?
You’ll also enjoy our new and inclusive Healthy Elements programme with everything from fitness sessions and guided bike rides to yoga-inspired stretch and relax classes and strength and conditioning workouts.

Reckon you can fit even more in? You can pay a little extra to water-ski or wakeboard or even take a motorboat out for a spin around the bay. Or if you fancy some time on dry land, then hire a car or moped from reception and discover the nearby citadels of ancient Greece or try island-hopping by boat. It’s all close by and easy to do.

Found at the southern tip of the Argolis Peninsula, Porto Heli is a chic harbourside resort, the centre of which is a 10-minute stroll along the seafront from Nautica bay. With a colourful cafe culture and white sandy beaches galore, Heli is a real hit with our guests. It has a wide range of sights, tours and excursions as well as great biking and walking along its idyllic coastline; with the Med's famously clear waters lapping the shore.

Heli is about 2 hours and 30 mins drive from the 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.

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.

Activities on the shore

The area has as much to do off the water as on it! Porto Heli is perfectly positioned to explore ancient Greece, by boat or by hire car.
