We know time on the water can wear you out so here are some more land activities for you to enjoy! Of course an ice cold Greek beer is one option, but we do have some fun activities around the club to keep you and the kids entertained.
Anyone can play table tennis!! Its a really great place to hang out and get to know other guests at the beach clubs. We sometimes hold games so if you are interested in getting involved or organising a competition let us know! Its always good to challenge an instructor too!
Both Lixouri Bay Beach Club and Paliki Club both have tables. Lixouri has two, one up at the hotel by the pool and the other at the beach bar by the watersports kit! Paliki has one table by the pool and pool bar.
Fresh Water pool
We have pools at both Becah Clubs. Paliki has a very large pool with the infamous diving platform and stunning views of the Beach Clubs sailing area, looking accross to Argostoli and Mount Aenos. Lixouri has a slightly smaller bendy pool that looks out across the secluded sailing area onto the beautiful mountain back drop.
Anyone can use the volley ball pitch at any time! Just go ask the beach bar for a ball. We organise games when we have little wind or lots of keen volley ball players! Great way to meet your fellow holiday makers. Our instructors are ALWAYS up for a game too!
We only have a pitch at Lixouri Bay Beach Club as the large, wide sandy beach allows for the perfect ground to play on!
If you are up for a challenge, there are some incredible routes around the island. Because of the beaming sun, we recommend early in the morning for longer routes, but little rides can be easily done in the evening and on cooler days. The island is very mountainous and can be a great challenge for thrill seekers, from the National Park of Mount Ainos at 1628m (higher that Ben Nevis), which dominates the island, to the compelling beauty of the wild countryside, fertile valleys and wild varieties of orchids. Remember to take plenty of water and don’t forget to explore local Greek cuisine on you way around.
Anyone with a thirst for adventure and cycling experience! It can get very hot so we recommend early morning or late afternoon.
Ainos bike hire in Argostoli (http://ainosbicycles.gr/en/). A great selection of bikes than those locally. You can also hire bikes in the local town of Lixouri.
