Water sports and Fun Park
On this side of the bay, in an environment where all safety rules are kept, there is a water sports center and fan park that initiates the visitors to the secrets of waterskiing and those of the wake board. Even those that are not sports fans can have fun with the tubes, the banana and the fly fish or can see the bay from above and enjoy a unique experience with parasailing. The list goes on and this is an opportunity for you, your friends and family to have fun while trying a new sport.
Vasiliki, with its reliable wind is ideal for kite surfing. The wind is mostly cross-shore and the water is deep beyond 20 meters from the beach, so it’s not great for beginners, but fine for strong intermediates and advanced riders. One drawback however, is the lack of kite hire companies and kite schools. If you want to kite surf here you need your own kite and you need to know what you’re doing.
