Why you need to go windsurfing in Karpathos, Greece

Summer is just around the corner and we think it’s the season to visit Karpathos in Greece! Over the years, the Greek islands have always upheld their appeal and the breathtaking beaches and interesting historical sights never fail to leave us spellbound. However, it is the adventurer in us that has us dreaming of a summer in Karpathos. From windsurfing to mountain biking, rock climbing and yoga, this exquisite island is perfect for active holidays with the family.




And it’s the ION CLUB in Karpathos that is the centre for all of these activities! The sparkling shallow turquoise waters and the long soft, sandy beach of the sheltered Chicken Bay make for an ideal safe spot for families and beginner windsurfers. The ION CLUB offers private or group lessons daily for beginners of all ages and provide a full range of high-quality equipment for kids and beginners, both for lessons or rental. 



And when you get off the water, you can explore the island of Karpathos on one of the ION CLUB’s guided tours or rent the latest Scott mountain or road bikes and enjoy the journey on your own! Beginners can glide downhill through tiny white and blue villages overlooking breath-taking views, while experts can be challenged with guided cross-country trails!



And if you are really looking for an adventurous activity for the entire family then go rock climbing! With professional bolted routes and a personal guide, safety is the number one priority and we guarantee this is an experience you will never forget.


For families with small children, the ION CLUB kids club will take care of them while you enjoy the club bar and restaurant or join the fun. At the heart of all the activities is the Anemos Bar and Restaurant, serving amazing cocktails and delicious ethnic foods in a familiar and fun atmosphere. The weekly parties and BBQs with live music are a must!
