MORE INFO
Vassiliki gets so much attention because of the excellent windsurfing it’s very easy to bypass the other world class sports on offer here. Early morning sees very light winds, glassy flat water and an often empty bay, this combined creates perfect paddle sport conditions. Move slightly inland and you are presented with lush green mountains, olive groves and beautiful greek villages, so bring your trainers for superb mountain biking trails and routes.

Riding on offer
A typical day in Vassiliki will see a light onshore wind in the morning, perfect for Beginners and the Junior Squad to practice their sailing and windsurfing.
