Playing with the waves.. dating in the air... at Lefkada island!
Playing with the waves ...
For the "lovers" of sports, movement and good life, the island offers endless possibilities and special pleasures.
If you're a fan of windsurfing, you will meet Lefkada on your windsurfing board, taming the waves and the winds on the beach of Vassiliki and Ai Giannis. Especially the bay of Vassiliki has evolved into a meeting place for athletes from around the world, since justly belongs to the best beaches for surfing worldwide.
Of course, in recent years, there is a new spectacular water sport, the kitesurfing, which has found in this island its own place, and even in the air! In Myli, one of the beaches of Lefkada in Ai Giannis, many kites are flying over the waves, filling the air with colors and cheerful voices raising the adrenaline. This exciting sport is hosted every summer in this beach, where games are held with the participation of Greek and foreign athletes, since only here the mistral is blowing, giving speeds to kite surf (30-40 miles) and offers a spectacular sight to those who are watching.
If we just like to play with the sea, at the sandy beaches of Lefkada and Nydri, we will enjoy almost all sports and games for the sea and the sky! Water ski, Jet Ski, fly fish, canoe, parasailing, banana etc. We choose whatever we like ...
What would you say for a yacht ride to enjoy the thrills offered by this sport? And if we have never tried it before, now, because we have the time at our disposal, it is the best opportunity to begin. There are sailing training schools on the island.
If we are fishing fans and we enjoy the tranquility and the meditation in this way, no problem. We can rent a boat from Nydri, get the ... paraphernalia on our shoulder, some useful information from a local fisherman (if necessary ... we can take him with us) and sail in the open Sea or rather the right places that have more fish (he knows where...)
Dating in the air!
Speaking of excitement, we recommend something that will amaze you: A paragliding takeoff from the starting point above Kathisma beach. Overcoming our early fears we all have, the experience will be unique! The absolute sense of freedom we feel, and the breathtaking views of the crystal blue Ionian Sea that lies at our feet, with no doubt, is one of the things we will never forget.
