Sailing

accreditation

The position of the resort gives it the feeling of being in a landlocked bay which naturally stops any harsh winds from interrupting while you’re learning to sail. Most beach resorts around the Med will sit between 2-4 on the Beaufort scale, but here we rarely get beyond 3. This makes for sublime winds and waves to get you used to navigating a sailboat.

Paleros Beach Resort offers free tuition and additional courses so you can choose to try and up your sailing game in an official capacity. Group sailing classes take place five days a week and are tailored to the ability of the class, with a maximum of six people per group. From the introduction to refresher and improvement classes, there are free lessons available all week. 

Guests that are new to sailing will be able to enjoy up to 3 hours of tuition free. If you want to go further and get qualified there's a range of pre-bookable RYA approved courses to choose from to get you going or take more experienced sailors up to the next level.

Windsurfing

accreditation

With fantastic conditions and state-of-the-art equipment, Paleros is an ideal location for all windsurfing lovers. With introductory tuition included as part of your holiday package, for beginners all the way to improvers, there will be something for all abilities, children included.

If you want to take things a little more seriously there's a full range of RYA courses available, led by our encouraging instructors. Those already accomplished at windsurfing can take their pick of the kit at the waterfront sail shed, hit the water and enjoy the glorious weather conditions.

Waterskiing and Wakeboarding

The calm waters in Paleros make for perfect conditions for waterskiing and wakeboarding. We offer sessions for children and adults of all levels and only use the best equipment so you can enjoy a safe and fun practice. A free dry land session and expert advice from our seasoned instructors will ensure that you get the basics and the confidence you need to get out on the water.

We also offer pre-bookable waterski and wakeboard packages. 

The minimum age for waterskiing is 8 years old.

Rowing

Always wanted to try rowing, or been inspired by the Boat Race? 

Paleros Beach Resort is one of only two Mark Warner locations where you can experience the sport of single skull rowing.  

The flat conditions in the early morning make Paleros the perfect spot for rowing and we offer introductory lessons to get the uninitiated quickly up to speed. 

This newest of our watersports is becoming very popular with guests and the coastal rowing boats are free to use at resort.

Kayaks are free and there is no time-limit! 

Our expert staff will make sure to give you tips and help you out, so you are well looked after before you take to the Ionian Sea.

Stand Up Paddle Boarding (SUP)

This fast-growing sport is fun and easy to learn and almost imperceptibly you benefit from a strong 'core' workout. 

Within an hour or two of practice you will find you are more than comfortable on your board, paddling out on the water. 

SUP boarding, as it is often referred to, can be done in a variety of conditions, but when learning, flat calm conditions are recommended. Paleros Beach Resort has that in abundance and you'll see a small flotilla of SUPs out enjoying the sea and the views.

SUP boards are available for use free of charge throughout your stay. Just come down to the waterfront and sign one out.

Swimming Pools

A great holiday resort needs quality swimming pools and Paleros is blessed with just that.

Our three freshwater pools offer choices for how you want to spend your downtime.

Completely chilled? Head to the adult pool (if you're old enough). Holiday pool fun? The family pool is for you. Safe splashing? Dip into the children's pool.  

Family pool

The family pool is where the actions is. Whether it’s a lively Aqua Aerobics class, a fun game of water polo or just quality time with the kids enjoying a refreshing break from the sun, the family pool is where it’s at.

The pool is a large, freeform shape, designed to give maximum space for swimming and fun in the pool and the surrounding terraces are generously supplied with comfortable sunbeds and sunshades. 

Our childcare practitioners and activity leaders make full use of the family pool for games with the kids and teens, so if you ever wonder what they are up to, there’s a good bet they’ll be in the pool or down on the beach. 

Children's pool

Sitting next to the main family pool is the shallow children’s pool.  Easy for parents to keep an eye on younger kids and a safe spot, close to the childcare centre for pool play during club time.

Adult pool

Away from the family pool, tucked into the beautiful resort gardens is the adult-only pool and terraces.

This is a peaceful haven for grown ups only. 

The pool is the perfect size and shape for swimming lengths (if you want to be energetic) and the sun loungers and shades provide a relaxed environment for catching up on a book and topping up the tan. 

We’ll keep all the fun and games well away in the family pool.
