GONE SURFING CRETE: KOUREMENOUS BEACH, CRETE, GREECE.
East Crete is known for its hospitality, amazing gorges and waterfalls, secluded beaches that are unspoiled from mass tourism, and now, for the guaranteed wind in Kouremenos! People ask when the wind starts and when it ends; in Kouremenos winds are all day, even all night!
Conditions and when to go:
All-day wind! The ‘Meltemi’ is accelerated inside the bay, with flat water through to bump and jump conditions. The cross-off wind starts in the morning and keeps blowing through the night. The season starts early in May and stays warm and windy until the end of October.
Kouremenos is the safest bet in Crete because of its consistency due to the ‘funnel effect’ and its intensity, the wind never takes a break, giving beginners to advanced sailors a great time. Families will appreciate the safety of the beach and the surrounding area.
