Crete Windsurf Holiday Overview

The expanse of Paleokastro lies approximately 3 hours by car from the airport on the far North Easterly point of Crete. The drive takes you through some stunning scenery along the Northern coast line with the most dramatic views through the winding roads of Eastern Crete. The Journey is rewarded by a part of Greece that is devoid of mass tourism, Some would say this is the Greece of 20 year ago.

Our lasting impression of Crete was the incredible kindness and friendliness of the locals and the unspoiled natural feel of the resort. This is a perfect location for a relaxing windsurfing holiday, with very reliable strong wind in the afternoons, and flat water conditions for all levels.

Activities in Crete

On the odd occasion that there is no wind there are many other things to do and see to keep you amused. These mostly take the shape of walks, visits to the many archaeological places and a diversity of other cultural tourist attractions. 

Nightlife in Crete

During the summer life starts in the evening and takes place in the village square by the church, which is surrounded with local cafes, bars and restaurants. While the children play football, the adults enjoy a traditional meal in the Greek taverns and the youth are having fun in the neighbouring bars, till the early hours.True party freaks should visit, Sitia, which lies 20 km from Palaikastro. Sitias Harbour is full of energy, packed with bars and cafes and the nightlife continues till the early hours of the morning in a diversity of discos.
