Swallows and Amazons at Lixouri Bay Beach Club
As part of your sailing holiday in Greece we offer amazing day excursions using the dinghies from our Lixouri Bay Beach Club, kind of like Swallows and Amazons but without the raincoats. Set the sails on our fleet of brand new RS dinghies and after a leisurely hop across the Ionian bay discover the hidden cove known as “Pirates Bay”. Throw in a support boat, some friendly beach staff and an ice box stuffed full of cold drinks and you may well have found the highlight of your beach club sailing holiday in Greece.
Read on to see what a typical day with us on the island of Kefalonia looks like..
A day in the life of A Trekky
A sailing holiday in Greece doesn’t have to be exhausting. A leisurely start at the beach club with breakfast served on the top floor taverna is a good way to kick off the day. Take in the stunning Ionian views over a cold frappe and croissant. You’ll be looked after by the one and only Lazaratos family, who just happen to be the most lovely hotel team ever, and they’ll cater to your every need. Choose from a selection of fresh fruit, yogurt, Greek breakfast cakes, and freshly prepared omelettes. Yum!!
To the beach
The beach is where it all happens. Loads of brand new dinghies, Sups, Kayaks and Catamarans to choose from, all inclusive and all part of your Active Sailing Holiday. You will then join up with the beach club sailing team at the beach shack, where they will give you a full introduction and the sailing briefing of the day.
After this grab some refreshments, pop them into our cool box and get yourself ready for a morning of fun and on-the-water activities at the secret beach.
Time to hit the water!
Time to go sailing, just grab the dinghy you signed up for ! With the light wind mornings, it generally takes a bit of beating up wind – some people like to race to the beach but most are happy to cruise along and enjoy the views.
We have two safety boats and some friendly beach team on hand to help with everything so anyone can have a go and feel secure ! It can take from 30 minutes to 1 hour to get there and it is so worth it…
our little slice of greek island paradise
It doesn’t get much better than this, seriously. Only accessible by dinghy, crystal clear water and the whitest of white sand. Enjoy the peace and quiet, grab a cold one and hang out at this secluded Greek beach, sheltered from the elements, perfect for a quick snorkel and a swim before lunch.
After spending a good hour one the beach relaxing as hard as we can, the dinghies blast back to the beach club, sails filled with the fresh early afternoon breeze, all in time for giant Greek salad and cold beer around the pool.
Don’t forget our yacht sailing holidays too..
