About the Beach Club

Read our Press Reviews
Welcome to the stunning Greek island of Lefkada, set in the shimmering blue waters of the Ionian Sea. It’s home to our flagship Beach Club that nestles on the sand of one of the finest watersports beaches in Greece: Vassiliki Bay.

A holiday at Vassiliki is a chance for the whole family to shake the rest of the year off, stretch out... and unwind. Flop into a lounger by our pool or gardens with a book, or take out our watersports kit for a spin round the bay and get wet windsurfing, sailing, kayaking and paddleboarding. Whatever your tonic, you’ll be in your element with us!

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, learning new sports and skills on and off the water... and giving you a well-deserved breather!

Activities Included

You’re not just staying with us for the week (or two) - you’re part of the club. So all our activities, whether they’re on dry land or in the water (for you or the children) are included in your holiday.

Our club is at the windward end of the beach, so you get the longest sailing hours and the best conditions to use all our excellent range of sailing dinghies, kayaks, paddleboards and windsurf kit. We’ve also got a crack team of expert RYA instructors on hand to deliver our free and inclusive programme of lessons (including free RYA courses) for sailing and windsurfing. We cover all levels: from beginner to expert. Our beach team will help you rig up, get launched and sail our great kit all week whether you are in a lesson or not. They’ll even teach you how to foil on a windsurf board if you’re looking for the ultimate thrill!

If you fancy some time on dry land, you’ll enjoy our inclusive Healthy Elements programme with everything from fitness sessions and guided bike rides to yoga inspired stretch and relax workouts. We also organise excursions like island hopping (by boat) to nearby Cephalonia or Ithaca and trips to the wine museum - which are very popular! And trips to nearby Porto Katsiki, the famous white sand beach.

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 workouts. Reckon you can fit even more in? You can pay a little extra to take a boat trip to nearby Cephalonia or Ithaca, try a day trip on a yacht with us or a wine tour (to the wine museum) or even a trip to nearby Porto Katsiki (the famous white sand beach). Or, if you fancy some time on dry land, then hire a car or moped and explore the island for a day, there’s lots to see and do.

The buzzing village of Vassiliki (whose friends know it simply as ‘Vass’) is centred around a pretty harbour on the southern shore of the beautiful island of Lefkada. It’s just a 10-minute walk (with beautiful views) along a seafront promenade from the Surf hotel. The town offers an array of taverna’s boutique shops, cafes and late night bars with a laidback surf vibe to it. Best of all it’s just over an hour from the airport, so no long transfers once you land!

Vassiliki has all the ingredients for the perfect beach holiday. As well as being a top watersports destination, there’s as much to do off the water as in it! It’s surrounded by jaw-dropping beaches, stunning coastal walks and epic mountain ranges for two wheeled adventures. We even provide guided bike rides if you just want to switch off and pedal! Boat trips, island-hopping to Cephalonia, wine tours and scooter rental are also all at your fingertips.

Family and Kids

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.

Why Choose Surf Hotel Beach Club?

Wind & Conditions for everyone

Everyday in paradise starts the same. Conditions in the morning are perfect for beginners with gentle on-shore winds. The wind slowly builds after lunch to provide more exciting sailing for Intermediates and up. By late afternoon the thermal winds build again, giving experts the best ‘planing’ conditions.

Dinghy Sailing & Windsurfing

Vassiliki suits both beginner and expert dinghy sailors and windsurfers. We offer free daily lessons, free RYA courses and free-use of our great range of boats and boards, with a crack-team of RYA instructors on hand to help you all week.

Activities on the shore

If you’d prefer a break from the waterfront, there’s always something going on back at the club. We lay on theme nights and excursions like wine tours and island hopping to Cephalonia. Our fitness classes and guided bike rides are a lot of fun; and our Kids Clubs will entertain the 4-13 year olds.

For a Stay Sail

Why not combine a yacht holiday with a week at our Beachclub for the perfect ‘twin centre’ break. Get the family hooked on sailing before you take to the seas aboard your own yacht.

If you’ve always wanted to skipper your own yacht but you think it’s out of reach, then think again! Book a two week Stay Sail and learn to sail with our yacht master instructor before you join our friendly flotilla and skipper your own yacht in week two.
