Sailing

Eressos beach and bay lends itself to excellent sailing conditions. 

Calmer mornings allow beginners to try something new while windier afternoons bring more advanced sailors the conditions they're looking for. Whatever your ability, our qualified instructors are always on hand to share tips and advice. 

A full array of sailing courses and lessons is offered by our experienced waterfront team if you're keen to hone your sailing skills. For complete novices and those just wanting a taste of the sailing life, a free introduction to sailing is also available. 

Our new waterfront facility is stocked with a choice of boats that will keep sailors of all standards interested, including our younger guests who will get out on the water with instructors several times during their stay.

Windsurfing

Aeolian Village Beach Resort really is an all-rounder for windsurfers of all abilities. 

Beginners will excel in the light morning winds and can practise their balance and control while intermediate windsurfers take to the waters in the afternoons as the winds pick up. Just head down to the new waterfront facility on the beach and pick your kit ready to hit the waves.

The Mark Warner team of instructors offer pre-bookable courses that can take you from novice through to using a harness and even a few freestyle moves (maybe not all in the same week!). There are free taster sessions to help you give the sport a go and kids from 6 years upwards will get a windsurf lesson as part of their club activity programme each week.

We have a wide selection of boards to suit all abilities for both adults and children, from high volume teaching boards to shorter wide style low volume free-ride boards. All are highly regarded brands such as Starboard.
