Vassiliki Resort

The pretty harbourside town of Vassiliki is an easy 10-minute walk along the beachfront promenade from our hotel. Vassiliki a quaint but buzzing place to be, with a chilled our surf-style vibe, lots of shops, late night bars and excellent taverna’s offering very reasonably priced food where you can eat out (very well) for less than £10!

Vassiliki Wind & Conditions

Typical pattern:

  • Mornings: F1-2
  • Afternoons: F4-7
  • Every day in paradise starts the same. Mornings offer a gentle on-shore breeze and calm conditions, (Force 1-2), perfect for families and beginners to learn windsurfing and sailing or to try paddle sports. It’s also a good time for the experts to experiment with new kit and technique.

    ‘Eric’, (our favourite Thermal wind), is a daily occurrence, in fact something of a local phenomenon and strengthens slowly after lunch. It remains very manageable, offering fun and exciting sailing for all levels into the afternoon. Later in the afternoon ‘Eric’ will often build again to provide stronger winds which is why our beach stays open until late. Our formula of top-notch equipment and expert RYA instructors, will ensure that most sailors (improver and up) can continue sailing all afternoon. There’s only a little surface chop, no waves and fantastic windsurf and sailing conditions all day.

    For Health & Relaxation

    Meanwhile for those who don’t want to spend time with Eric, (the wind), there’s always something going on back at the beach club. We lay on theme nights, excursions, (like island hopping), fitness clubs, (like Aqua Zumba, Stretch-and-Relax), yoga, jogging groups and bike rides. Vass’ is known for its great mountain bike 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. Whether you prefer to be poolside or feel sand between your toes, we have plenty of sun-loungers for an afternoon snooze.

    Vassiliki for Windsurfing

    Vassiliki is the Windsurf Capital of Europe, but that doesn’t mean it’s only for the experts. In fact, beginners are just as well suited to Vassiliki. 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.

    Vass’ is also our Specialist Windsurf Centre, which means it has the best range of boards and the best tuition and windsurfing programme of all our clubs. After all, it’s the right kit and tuition that really makes the difference to your enjoyment.

    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...

    If you are an experienced windsurfer you might also try our Akti Beach and our 5* Akti Palace in Kos.

    Vassiliki for Dinghy Sailing

    Vassiliki is an excellent sailing area, 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.

    For something a little different, try our long-distance dinghy cruising excursion with clinics on basic route planning and navigation. And take part in our weekly dinghy racing regattas – for both fleet racing and handicap races.

    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 Vassiliki which is free to use all week.

    Perfect for all the family

    We pride ourselves on being a big hit with families, so it’s understandable that our flagship centre in Vassiliki attracts lots of children during the school holidays. We make sure they have a great time: kids love our free Active Kids Clubs for ‘Sea Urchins’ and ‘Tigers’ from 4 to 13 years.

    Our excellent Youth Squad is a dedicated RYA coaching programme for 8-13 year olds that’s great for budding sailors and windsurfers. We offer coaching for older teens too, as well as a social club where they can hang out and make new friends over games of beach volleyball and frisbee.

    Vassiliki 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, and the waist-deep teaching area and sand bar means it’s ideal for kids to learn sailing, windsurfing and paddle sports in warm, clear waters.

    The short transfer from the airport (always popular with little travellers!) and the sheer range of kids’ activities on offer make this a great club for families. Our Kids Clubs will introduce kids to water sports as well as a whole heap of fun and (slightly crazy) shore based activities run by our expert childcare leaders. They’re designed to give kids a sociable time whilst learning new experiences and making the most of the local area.

    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. You'll also appreciate our range of interconnecting and family rooms.
