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.

Rhodes island is the second largest of the Greek islands and has long been a very popular summer sun holiday destination with Northern Europeans so there are lots of flights from many regional airports. Rhodes Town in the North of the island is a mixture of historical buildings, cobbled small streets lined with shops, cafe and restaurants, as well as having buzzing nightlife if you want it. Rhodes can be a little 'bucket & spade' in places but also has considerable charm and character.

Leading southwards from Rhodes Town is a long stretch of hotel lined beaches, including Ilalyssos where the best windsurfing is and a brilliant windsurf centre. Within walking distance of the windsurf location there are a number of good hotels as well as some superb luxury hotel just a short drive or taxi ride away. This makes Rhodes a great place for a short haul family windsurf holiday as well as a more focused pure windsurf trip.

Prasonisi in a small wind haven at the very far south of the Island of Rhodes, approximately a 1 and a half hour drive from Rhodes airport. This resort is dedicated to kitesurfers and windsurfers with very reliable strong wind, super centres with the very latest equipment, and both super flat water and small waves spot right next to each other. Prasonisi is the ideal resort for those who want to spend as much time on the water as possible as that is the only reason people stay here! The accommodations are quite basic, but ideally located right on the beach, and in a totally unspoilt area of this beautiful island. There are no swimming pools, bars or other resort facilities that come with the more general holiday resorts. However, for the windsurfer or kitesurfer this place is absolute heaven!

Kos Island in Greece is located just north of Rhodes, close to Turkey (which you can see just across the water) and has long been a popular destination for windsurfing holidays. The best windsurfing in Kos is in this area, just south east from Kos Town, as the wind generally blows side to side on shore from the left with very reliable summer conditions. One side effect of this side shore wind is that the beaches in this part of Kos tend to be very narrow and pebbly; the wind literally blows the sand along the coats with no natural obstructions. If you prefer a sandy beach then please see our details on Marmari Windsurfing Holidays.

In Psalidi Planet Travel offer a range of good quality 4 and 5* star hotels away from the more ‘touristic’ areas at the other side of Kos Town. The hotels here are generally of a very good standard, some set higher up above the waters edge with stunning views. The hotels in this part of Kos tend to be slightly better for couples or families with older children. The hotels in our other resort of Marmari tend to offer better family facilities for younger children.

Zakynthos is one of the most stunning Greek Islands, often referred to as the ‘Green Island Of Poetry, Of Song and Love’. Our resort is in the North of the island as far away for the larger resorts of the East and South of the island as is physically possible. Here you can get away from it all but you still have the option of the Club facilities. Whilst extremely popular with families and their teenagers in July and August, The Club is increasingly popular with couples or groups of friends looking to relax and let their hair down outside of the school- holidays.

There are fewer beaches in this area and most of them are pebbles rather than sand. Tourists don’t make it up there save a few of the braver travellers who come to visit the famous Blue caves and Shipwreck beach from the little harbour nearby.

The area is sparsely developed with only a few local Tavernas and Villas dotted around the hillside.

The Club is a collection of honey coloured buildings perched on a rocky outcrop overlooking Kephalonia, on the beautiful unspoilt north-eastern tip of Zakynthos, a short 3 hour flight from the UK. The Club operates as the centre point for the community, with its restaurant, bar and watersports facilities. 

Nearby is the small and picturesque fishing port of Anghios Nicolas, which has a shingle beach and friendly bars and taverns. Wooden decks have been built into the rocks and are kitted out with umbrellas and sun beds so guests can establish a base camp at a vantage point for watching the watersports action.

Samos is often affectionately referred to as the Emerald of the Aegean and as soon as you arrive there you will understand why. Two mountain formations cover the greatest part of the island, with acres of forests, vineyards and olive groves overlooking the aqua blue Aegean Sea. Dirt roads in the highlands, inland water springs, caves and demanding routes in the mountains are what make Samos a top destination for mountain bikers, trekkers, climbers and runners alike, with guided tours available in abundance. Fortunately, Samos has been spared the excesses of Greek tourism.

The courteous and hard working locals are proud of their traditions and Island, and still embrace them today. In this way Samos manages to maintain a real authenticity which nowadays can be increasingly hard to find.

The windsurf centre is located in Kokkari on the Northern coast of Samos. The Meltemi blows side shore from the left here creating some really sweet freeride conditions. On top of this the mountainous backdrop gives way to a regular afternoon thermal. The transfer time from the airport is just 20 minutes. The village of Kokkari is only 5 minutes walk from the center and is home to the most picturesque fishing harbour on Samos.

All you may need is here; car rental, internet, cash dispensers, pharmacy, chic boutiques, fresh fish and traditional home cooking tavernas and a waterfront promenade where you can sit and sip cocktails while the world goes by.

Despite all the economic turmoil of recent years, Greece remains, in the summer months, one of the most popular destinations in southern Europe. In addition to the mainland, the Greek islands pull many tourists into their spell. The seemingly countless beautiful beaches as well as the many ancient sites strengthens their appeal. A trip to the land of the Gods is also worthwhile for windsurfers and kite surfers, since the Meltemi regularly provides wind throughout the summer.

Deserted beaches, idyllic mountain villages and cozy tavernas - this is Karpathos. The charm of the island is her virginity and originality. Karpathos is located on the eastern South Aegean island arc and is 46 km north-east of Rhodes. For many years, Karpathos has been a destination magnet for windsurfers returning year after year, thanks to the wind record. Come in summertime and you'll find everything surfers hearts wish for! The island stretches between Rhodes and Crete, and the Meltemi blows from the north through the high mountains.

Planet’s newest Mediterranean resort of Marmari sits on the North West coast of the Island of Kos in Greece; an island well known for it's super reliable wind conditions in the summer months. Kos is a superb destination for a Mediterranean windsurf holiday as it offers a short direct flight from many European airports, plus an easy transfer to your hotel. Kos has a selection of both medium category hotels to very luxurious properties, which are all very close to the Marmari Windsurf centre. This windsurf resort in Kos is therefore one of the few resorts where we can accommodate that rare combination of world class windsurfing and luxury accommodation.
