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..
how does it work?
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…
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.
Which beach club for Sail Away?
Currently we run the sail away from Lixouri Bay Beach club. We have the perfect bay to sail to called Lovers Bay. At Paliki Beach Club we do a paddle board excursion down the coast to a local cafe where you can enjoy sipping on an ice cold frappe.
