MORE ON SAILING DINGHIES

Ocean Elements Kids Club

Akti beach runs its own kids’ clubs with its animations staff and also has creche for 1-4yrs. 

We also run our own exclusive Ocean Elements Kids Club for our guests only. And it’s free for your 4-13-year-olds to join. Our clubs are run by our own British staff and RYA instructors and we take them on all sorts of water sports tasters in boats, on windsurf boards, atop kayaks and paddle boards as well as fun and games on dry land. Your kids will make lots of new friends and have a whale of a time trying new activities and watersports tasters all week. But don’t blame us when they won’t want to leave!

RYA Youth Squad is also very popular and gives 8-12yr olds lots of dedicated coaching in both windsurfing and sailing as part of a stage in their RYA certificates.

Kos Wind Information

Typical pattern:
  • Mornings: F1-2 
  • Afternoons: F4-7

Each day in paradise starts the same: The morning eases in with a gentle on-shore Force 1-2 breeze and very calm water. This is perfect for families and beginners learning to windsurf and sail, or trying paddle sports and water skiing, (payable locally). It’s also a good time for the experts to try out new kit or moves.

The thermal wind builds slowly around lunchtime and remains very manageable offering fun sailing for all levels into the afternoon. Around 2-3pm the wind builds again – giving even more exciting conditions for windsurfers and sailors. 

Our top-notch equipment and expert 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 conditions all day.

What meals are provided?

The Ultra All-Inclusive Package is included with all our holidays, with all the food and drink you should ever need! Here’s what’s in store for summer 2019

  • Food 24 hrs a day

You can dip in and out of lessons during your week (depending on your energy levels) and there's no need to pre-book tuition or courses. Just sign up to the sessions when you arrive at our clubs.

You can sail for fun as often as you like during beach opening hours; or complete all four mornings of an RYA course (which is still a lot of fun) and you’ll go home with a new Internationally recognised qualification at the end of your stay. Courses last 8-10hrs total for Windsurfing and 10-12 hours for Dinghy sailing.

*Level 3 is included in our Kos Beach Clubs, subject to availability.

 

What’s the beach like?

The beach on Kos outside our centre is a long stretch of sandy beach mixed with some stones. Wade out into waist-deep crystal-clear water for some distance which helps make windsurfing and sailing easier. Enjoy very clean waters and safe swimming for all ages. 

The  Beach Club gardens lead onto the beach and there are sun loungers and umbrellas by the water, a beach bar and our Ocean Elements water sports centre is nearby.
