What’s New For 2019

Tuition change for 2019

We offer free tuition for sailing and windsurfing all week, (so no change there), but shorter and more focussed on the skills you really need to learn. Less of the buffer, more of the serious ‘need to know’ skills. We also offer an Intro lesson for Paddleboarding.

In addition to our daily workshop of lessons we will be running dinghy and windsurf racing and ragatta’s, paddleboard safaris, kayak lessons, sailaway dinghy cruising and much more- so you’re busy and active all day, if you want to, whatever your ability.

Akti Beach and Akti Palace, Kos

The most exciting addition to our Beach Club programme is our exciting new centre on the Greek island of Kos. Our 4* Akti Beach and our 5 * Akti Palace Beach Clubs offer the ‘Ultra All-Inclusive’ catering package (food & drink 24/7), along with all-inclusive activities like tennis, aerobics, spa and wellness, archery, kids clubs and some of the best sailing, windsurfing and paddle sports conditions that we know of.

Yacht holidays – new fleet

86% of our yacht flotilla guests book as a two week Stay Sail holiday to our award-winning Surf Hotel in Vassiliki. Our Ionian yacht flotilla gets a big upgrade for 2019, with some new (and very smart) yachts available on Stay sail, Flotilla, Flexi Flotilla and Bareboat.

Beginner Skipper course

Try our Start Yacht Sailing beginner skippers course, which is perfectly suited to novice sailors or rusty old timers staying on one of our two-week stay and sail holidays at the Surf Hotel. Spend week one learning how to skipper a yacht and week two putting your new skills into practice.

Relax… or Get Active

Our holidays are designed for everyone: whether you want to switch off the phone, open a book and feel sand between your toes; or stay active from dawn ‘till dusk trying more activities than you can shake a kayak paddle at.

All our rooms are air-conditioned, and 96% have a balcony and sea view. Like you, we like to relax, take in the view and spend time chilling while the kids go wild.

Kids Clubs & Youth Squads!

Kids love our Kids Clubs and that’s why we include them in our holidays. Understandably, they get better each year as we fine-tune them with guest feedback, and we’ve got lots in store for this summer.

Expect five days of organised activities run in sociable groups - so you can get some unhindered ‘me-time’ on the water. Your children will be making new friends in no time… so don’t be offended when they start saying that they’d rather spend time in kids club than with you!

Ocean Elements Youth Squad is our dedicated coaching course for aspiring young sailors and windsurfers which follows the RYA Youth scheme for 8-13-year-olds. It’s a paid for extra, but its super popular and you get up to 20% off if you book early. Otherwise, kids go into our free Kids Clubs and get sailing tasters.

Sail Foiling

Ocean Elements is one of the only active beach holiday companies to offer foiling for sailing and windsurfing at Surf hotel in Vassiliki, Akti Beach in Kos and Nautica bay in Porto Heli.

We have an exciting foiling programme which will enable Intermediate sailors and windsurfers to learn the art of foiling. It’s run by our own RYA foiling instructors (a rare breed!) and using the latest cutting-edge kit. So you can pay a little extra this summer to have the sailing experience of a lifetime.

Healthy Elements

In the Surf Hotel we offer Stretch and Relax classes and our sociable paddleboard and kayak cruises take place in all our clubs.

Our Hotel Leda, Akti Beach and Nautica bay guests will be able to sample our new Healthy Elements option where you can try guided walks and guided bike rides to suit your style of riding. A tennis instructor is available (by special request) at Nautica bay.

We also offer Yoga and Pilates classes in Leda’s incredible Yoga house (payable) and in Akti beach, it is free and inclusive. Healthy Elements can be organised and paid for locally with your Ocean Elements rep. 

Healthy Elements is a great option if you're not so focused on water sports but still have those in your family that do want the usual Ocean Elements water-based action.

See our Beach Fitness and guided mountain bike rides pages.
