About the Beach Club

NEW: Learn to Foil (Sailing) this summer, only at Nautica Bay [more]

Our Nautica Bay Beach Club 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 luxury 4-diamond-rated hotel, with its own extensive lawns and gardens, swimming pool, crazy golf and tennis courts for you to discover and enjoy. The hotel has beautiful sea views wherever you look, and its gardens lead down to a private sandy beach with sun loungers and our very own excellent water sports centre packed full of the latest kit for you to try out. So whether you want to switch off or jump on-board, you’ll be in your element!

Nautica Bay Club - What's Included

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 though, this is your chance! You can get five half-days of inclusive sailing tuition from our own RYA instructors, whether you’re a beginner or more advanced. It’s also great for beginner to high-intermediate windsurfing, and again you can get windsurf tuition as part of our package.

Along with sailing and windsurfing tuition, don’t forget paddle-boarding, 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.

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

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. 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.

Your children will love our free Kids Club (4-12 years old), which runs five days a week and makes sure your children will never be bored, help them make new friendships and enjoy sailing and windsurf tasters. We also offer Youth Squad for more dedicated coaching for your sailing young guns, which follows the RYA syllabus.

Activities on the Shore

The area has some incredible mountain biking which combines a natural mix of single-track pathways and coastal roads, steady inclines and exhilarating downhill sections. There’s biking to suit every rider and we offer guided rides too. Plenty of you just want to mountain bike all week – it’s that good!

Why not go for a game of tennis on the hotels courts? Put your putter to the test on some crazy golf or maybe adventure further afield on a boat trip to nearby islands like Spetses or Hydra and take your bike or go on foot, exploring.

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

About the Hotel

Each bedroom has a balcony and you can see the crystal blue waters from most of them. All rooms have 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).

Walking Holidays

Location

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

The harbour side 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 area is also famous for its rich cultural history of ancient Greek ruins, amphitheatres and citadels. The islands of Spetses and Hydra are just a boat trip away and further extend the biking and walking. And (quite conveniently) a lovely traditional motor yacht sits right outside the hotel for our guests who want to explore.

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 Active Kids Club, plus a raft of shore-based activities and plenty of 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. We offer coaching for older teens too, but they can join our free and inclusive adult teaching groups from the age of 14 which follow the RYA syllabus.

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.

Guests will love our fleet of new mountain bikes!

Expect a plethora or culture tours, island trips, boat trips and so many things to do on and off the water for all ages.

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

Kayak or paddle board around the harbour or just chill and relax by our hotel pool or on our private hotel beach armed only with a good book and a beach towel!

Try Foiling

If you can blast reach a Laser, then you should be able to foil with us at Nautica bay this summer!

We are excited and proud to announce a new foiling programme designed to introduce you to this new wave of sailing.

We have our very own foiling instructors and you can try foiling or even take a two-day course for a small (but very worthwhile!) extra charge.

Activities on the shore

The area has some incredible mountain biking which take in a natural mix of Singletrack pathways and wide fire roads, steady inclines and exhilarating downhill sections. In short, there’s biking to suit all abilities and guided rides too. We have many guests that just want to mountain bike all week – it’s that good!

Why not go for a game of tennis on the hotels courts, play some crazy golf or trek further afield on a boat trip to nearby islands like Spetses or Hydra (paid extra) and here you can extend your biking and walking.

Hire a car or moped from reception to try an array of day trips such as the ancient walled city of Haliesis, the pretty village of Ermioni or visit Navplion with its' impressive 13th century citadel.

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 we often extend our sailing area further out of the bay to get stronger winds for the advanced sailors. If you prefer to windsurf then as an intermediate you’ll have some fun, but if you want stronger Force 6+ winds, you should try our Vassiliki beach club!

Why go to Nautica Bay?

If you like the idea of a more rounded holiday with a great variety of cultural excursions (ancient ruins) or day trips to Spetses and non-water-based 'things to do' with a nice relaxing hotel, or if your’ preferred sport is biking, then Nautica bay is ideal.

Its sheltered bay is great for families, novice sailors and not-so-active guests. But excitable experts - fear not, as a specialist sailing centre it has excellent facilities and opportunities to sail out of the bay in the stronger afternoon breeze and make this the centre of choice for intermediate to advanced dinghy sailors who may want to dabble in windsurfing and still get ‘planing’ in the breeze.
