VASSILIKI, LEFKAS, GREECE
Whether you are a beginner or a pro-freestyler, those looking for a relaxing or action holiday, families or single travellers, Vassiliki really has something for everyone! Situated on the southern shore of the beautiful and exclusive island of Lefkada, Vassiliki (or Vass) is a small, traditional harbour-side village, perfect for windsurfing holidays.
Surrounded by beautiful green mountains and shimmering turquoise waters. The season starts late May and ends in October. The afternoon cross-shore wind relies on some thermal factors; hotter Greek months see consistent and strong winds but sessions still happen in early and late season. New for 2018, try foiling.
Lefkada does have a few well known windsurfing spots, but why windsurf anywhere other than Vassiliki? The local wind effect, called ‘Eric’, is a combination of thermal and geographical factors, which means Vassiliki Bay will always have more wind than anywhere else on the island.
