Windsurfing in Helona Beach Resort

Lakitira and Helona Beach Resorts are particularly good for windsurfing. Calm conditions in the morning suit the beginner, while as the regular thermal winds build in the afternoon, conditions are well suited for the more advanced windsurfer.

We have a fantastic team of qualified instructors running our watersports centre, all on hand to simply rig or de-rig craft for you, instruct you on an RYA course or in a free group lesson, or just take you out on the water and to show you how it's done. We have plenty of all the latest equipment for our guests' use throughout the day.

Please note: All windsurfing activities take place at Lakitira Beach Resort, next to Helona.
