Kitesurfing

NON-INCLUSIVE @ Lixouri Bay Beach Club

For 2020, we’re very excited to be offering kitesurfing sessions at Lixouri Bay Beach Club. Whether you’re a complete beginner or seasoned pro, Kefalonia has some great kiting winds. Lighter morning breezes allow beginner kiters the chance to master the kite without being blown away. When the winds pick up in the afternoon, the experts can head out for a whizz around the sailing area.

If you can already kite and have your own kit please feel free to bring it along on your Beach Club Holiday. With cross/offshore winds and a gently shelving big sandy beach, Lixouri Bay is a good spot to kite. It’s not a busy beach either so works really well for launching and kiting. We’ll also provide on the water safety cover for your peace of mind free of charge.

Kitesurfing

The island of Kefalonia is a well-kept secret lying off the South-West coast of mainland Greece. It’s well known for its mountain range, perfect temperatures and consistent thermal wind conditions. Over summer temperatures range from 20-30+ degrees. You can say goodbye to your wetsuit and hello to boardies and bikinis.

Lessons and Hire

Beginners and intermediates can pay for private and group kiting sessions with our dedicated beach club kitesurfing instructor. Try a taster session to dip your toe in the water, or purchase a few sessions to push your skills throughout the week.

For the novice kiter, Lixouri’s wide stretch of sandy beach and shallow waters offer the perfect spot for learning to kitesurf. Spend a few hours on the beach getting to grips with the kite and getting it flying for the first time. As you progress your skills, you’ll move into the water and practise water dragging in the shallows.

For intermediate level kiters who have the basics ticked off, our instructor can give you some tips and tricks to help you progress. You can spend the week pushing your kiting skills in our sailing area, and perhaps book a lesson if there is something specific that you want to work on.

(Lesson prices and how to book will be confirmed closer to the summer, so watch this space!)
