GONE SURFING CRETE
KOUREMENOS BEACH, CRETE, GREECE

THE LOW DOWN: 

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! A well-kept secret among French, Austrian and some passionate British windsurfers who enjoy our great conditions. The wind in Kouremenos is increased due to local thermal funnelling effects. 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 to bump and jump. 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.
