Windsurfing at Kouremenos Beach
Villa Amalia overlooks Kouremenos Beach ond Freak Windsurf Station where the Meltami Winds makes it an ideal place to learn or improve your Windsurfing talents.
The New Station was opened in 2004 by Hannes Unterweger and Davina Payne.
There they offer many boards and sails for rent.
Kouremenos Beach is one of the best windsurf spots in the whole Greece and is why the largest windmill generator park in Crete is based here. Palekastro has yet to be discovered by mass tourism so remains a genuinly authentic Greek village with accommodation & food to match. Couple that with the wind stats & Palekastro could become a real windsurfing hot spot. Come here now, before it gets too busy!
The bay offers perfect flat-water conditions near the shore. The advanced and intermediates can practise their surf moves in the clear blue water of Kouremenos Beach. You can find perfect conditions for planning moves as well as professional freestyle. The wind blows side shore from the left and achieves a wind force between 4 and 7 Beaufort. During the summer season, the average wind force is approximately 6 Beaufort. Most used sail size: 4.5 – 5.3.
Come and join us for a summer of fun in Palekastro, Crete.
