Never been sailing before on your holiday? Always looked with a touch of envy when you see people out in the water and wondered if you’d make a good sailor or how you go about being able to sail on holiday?
When you stay at Phokaia Beach Resort with us, you have the chance to get your sea legs in order and learn to sail with qualified instructors in one of the best places you can get to grips with sailing.
We are very lucky to have a resort in such a unique location, and when you try sailing with us, you’ll soon see what makes it so magical.
Facing west towards the Mediterranean, Phokaia is a sailor’s paradise. Wind conditions are what you’d expect (mild in the morning, fun in the afternoon), and with the natural shelter provided from a large cove around us, it has just the right kind of breeze to make sailing a doddle.
For anyone completely new to sailing you’ll have lucked into learning the sport in a great location. Also, with the facilities available for resort guests, you’ll learn with the best equipment and gain insight from experienced instructors.
Don’t worry if you’ve never even stepped foot in a sailing boat before. We have our own RYA qualified local and UK instructors at hand to teach you the ropes and help you get used to controlling a sailboat.
For adults, we have dedicated classes that get you up to speed in no time at all, with the possibility of taking out a small boat yourself to do some solo sailing around the bay. There may also be group lessons available during your stay that make it a unique family activity to do on your holiday.
For kids aged 10-13 years old, we have a certificate based course that runs alongside some of our childcare programmes.
We do also have private tuition available upon request, but this may have a fee included.
Anyone staying in Phokaia is going to be very excited to know it’s one of our top resorts for watersports, thanks to its unique location and the access to the water right on our doorstep. It’s quite common for some guests to spend most of their week down by the water, and who can blame them when they have the chance to do activities you don’t get the chance to back home.
Other watersports you can enjoy while you’re here include:
