Experience the Meltemi winds in Greece
Prasonisi Beach is the southernmost beach of Rhodes – the main island of the Dodecanese Island in Greece. Prasonisi Beach is famous for its excellent geographical location, strong and stable Meltemi winds, and unique coastline connecting two seas at one large sandy beach; the Aegean Sea and the Mediterranean Sea. These characteristics make it one of the world’s most attractive and interesting places for windsurfing or wind foil, both at beginner and advanced levels.

Best months to visit?
Advantages: good winds, the equipment is factory new, a lot of space in the water making sailing more comfortable.
Disadvantages: the water and the wind are still a bit cold so a shorty wetsuit is necessary or even a full suit on colder days.
Advantages: good strong warm winds and warm water and still not too many sailors in the water as well as regular tourists.
Advantages: it is the height of the season so it is very busy, a good time for singles to come, there is a lot happening and you can enjoy good wind days.
Disadvantages: this period is not recommended for people who are looking for discounted prices.
Advantages: an excellent extension of the summer, excellent water and air temperature, beautiful sunrises. Good winds the whole time, although this is a bit more unpredictable in October. A lot of space in the water.

Which wetsuit do I need?

What can you do besides windsurfing?
It is quite a wild part of the island, so apart from windsurfing, there are not many other activities on site. Our guests usually perceive this as a positive aspect.
Are there any bars or restaurants around?
In the area, there are traditional small restaurants where windsurfers are treated as top customers. For a fun evening, we advise you to go to the beautiful city of Lindos where the bars with music are located.
