One of the original summer time windsurfing hotspots in Greece Vassiliki still remains a must visit location both for it’s windsurfing and just the overall scene. The wind surfing beach runs from the foot of a mountain towards the town and the windsurfing centres are spread out along the beach.

Neilson have the best position as they are closest to the foot of the mountain, which is the windiest part of the beach.

A summer time venue. Flat/choppy water and a mix of wind make it good for all levels of windsurfer – The Zeus Bar is legendary………

It's possible both to hire a boat and have private windsurfing lessons - so do both!
