We have all the water sports you’ll need for a fantastic family beach holiday. Dinghies, Catamarans, Windsurfs, SUPs and Kayaks are all available to use. Being family-friendly, we have kids specific kit available, plus a range of multi-person boats allowing you to sail together as a family.
Our super friendly and experienced RYA qualified beach team will get you rigged up and out on the water, whether you’re a first-time beginner or a seasoned pro. With large safe sailing areas and safety boats on hand, you can let the kids loose on the water with peace of mind that our fab team are keeping an eye them.
When the wind picks up a little too much for novice sailors, the beach team will keep them occupied on the beach with some fantastic beach activities including volleyball, table tennis and lots more.
Do I need to book these activities?
Definitely not! As with all our inclusive instruction and tuition sessions, there is no need to book in advance. Just turn at the session time and the beach team will get them involved.
Safety On The Water
Our RYA qualified instructors are always out on safety patrol across our beach club sailing areas whenever there are guests on the water. Whilst keeping an eye on safety, they’re also on hand for on the water help and advice should you need it.
Our Beach Club weeks start with a safety briefing on day 1 where the beach senior will explain to everyone about staying safe on the water.
At the beginning of the week, we start with a safety brief. This will be specific to each beach club. Our beach senior will outline how to stay safe and have fun on the water, whether you are paddleboarding, kayaking, sailing and windsurfing. When you are learning to sail or windsurf, you may end up in the drink. The instructors will show you how to recover kit and right capsized dinghies, so you are fully prepared if you happen to topple over.
Lixouri Bay Sailaway
The Sailaway at Lixouri Bay Beach Club is such a super fun trip out. Set sail across the bay to Pirates Cove. Sail together as a family or let the youngsters go it alone. The beach team will be riding along in the safety boat the whole way. At Pirates Cove, we’ll have the beach to ourselves. Sit back and enjoy some rays or cool in the crystal clear water.
Set Sail For The Day
For something completely different, we have our lovely day yacht available to charter. All the family can get involved as you raise the mainsail and head out into the Gulf of Argostoli on our easy-to-sail day yacht. After a couple of hours sailing to an idyllic cove, drop anchor and sit around the cockpit for a yummy picnic lunch before diving into the crystal clear waters for a swim. Spend mid-afternoon meandering back to Lixouri marina and then perhaps stop off at I-Scream for an after sail ice cream!
If you don’t have any sailing qualifications, it’s not a problem! Let our qualified skipper take the helm (and maybe show you the ropes) for a stress-free day of sailing.
