Elafonisi, located in south-west Crete, contains a beautiful lagoon and a south facing swimming beach, both with crystal clear water and pink sand comprising an exotic scenery found only in a few places on earth. During the summer months, just south of the swimming area is found one of the best windsurfing areas around Crete.
Wind conditions: The location is exposed to the north-west winds of Ionian sea and is a side-shore spot with steady wind and no gusts or changes in direction. During summer months the thermal winds guarantee planning conditions almost every day (with force 4 to 5 and some days force 6 beauforts).
Lagoon: At the south side of the lagoon you will enjoy some of the best freestyle, freeride and slalom conditions, as the flat water and the steady wind guarantee your improvement, if you learn carve gybes or your first freestyle moves. In the lagoon there is waist deep water ideal to enjoy kitesurfing too. Finally, if you are a beginner you will learn to sail in the tiny gulf in front of the surf station which is a natural sandy pool with waist deep flat water.
Perfect playground: The training playground is extremely safe, ensuring children and beginners will enjoy a fun introduction to windsurfing in a secure environment.
The Station: Our main station located at Elafonisi is working daily from 1st of May until the end of October. We periodically operate our substation at Falasarna Spot when the windsurfing conditions are suitable or upon customer request.
It is a friendly place too for your non-windsurfing partners. Perfect natural scenery, calmwater to swim in, with a well organized vender area for umbrellas, drinks and food, combines everything you could ever need from a sailing destination.
