About the Beach Club
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!
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 dinghies, kayaks, paddleboards and windsurf kit. We’ve also 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.
Wind & Sailing Conditions
The pool and gardens front one of the finest water sports beaches in Greece: Vassiliki is the perfect spot for windsurfing and dinghy sailing. Conditions in the bay are perfect for beginners with gentle on-shore winds and calm waters.
The arrival of stronger thermal winds (known locally as ‘Eric’) later in the afternoon are tailor-made for those who like more of a challenge. More experienced sailors and windsurfers love to blast around the bay, backed up by the combination of our state-of-the-art kit and expert instructors on hand to help them get the most of it.
Activities on the shore
Meanwhile for those who don’t want to spend time with Eric, 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...
About the Hotel
You’ll be right in the heart of all the fun in our beachfront hotel. We’ve a range of twin, triple, quad and inter-connecting family suites, all designed in a fresh, modern style. Each room comes with a sea view (some more direct than others), as well as a balcony or terrace for you to soak up the sun, and (as you’d expect) each has a full en-suite bathroom, air-conditioning, Wi-fi, fridge and satellite TV with English stations.
Once you’re back in from the water you can relax over a drink in the Driftwood Beach Bar. It’s the perfect spot at the end of a hot day to get some extra tips from your instructor over a cool drink.
You can get to know the other guests at the Beach Club over dinner in our restaurant, or maybe at our end-of-week awards or BBQ. If you’re keen to work up a sweat while you’re with us then our Fitness Club offers Aqua Zumba, stretch relax and jogging classes.
