Samos - Kokkari, Greece & Mediterranean

Samos, Kokkari offers a Greek island windsurfing holiday with mountain biking and other activities available. This pretty resort has a choice of hotels for singles, couples, groups and families. Head out in the evening to the many tavernas, bars and restaurants or explore nearby mountain walks, turquoise bays and villages. The centre is run by a British management team with sociable set up and families welcome. Weekly BBQs and excursions are available at the centre. Walking distance to the town and many pretty bays nearby, there is a choice of budget and luxury hotels close by.

Sailing Spot and Conditions
Kokkari is situated on a wide bay and an ideal spot for both windsurfing and learning to windsurf. Sailing on the crystal clear blue waters with a mountainous backdrop will take your breath away. The Meltemi blows side shore from the left here creating great freeride conditions. The local mountainous landscape generates a regular afternoon thermal. A shallow, wind protected area near the centre allows beginners a safe start with the cross on-shore wind. The further out the stronger the wind with increased windchop and sometimes generating ramps up to 2m on the outside. For beginner and early intermediate lessons, there is a teaching area with flat water in a sheltered spot for less strong winds. With easy access to the water via a ramp. The Centre provides shuttle transfers for lessons which take approx 10-15 minutes. 

Culture and Activities

Set off the south west coast of Turkey is Samos, known as the "Emerald of the Aegean". As soon as you arrive you will know why. Mountainous landscapes covered with ancient, green forests, vineyards and olive groves lead down to sparkling seas of blues and greens. At only 27miles long by 8 miles wide exploring is easy. Historical sites, pretty hilltop villages and vineyards. Sample the fresh produce, not forgetting the traditional sweet Muscat wine. Still relatively undeveloped, visitors are welcomed with warm Greek hospitality. Kokkari is a picture perfect fishing village on the northern coast. All facilities are close to hand - car  and mountain bike rental, internet, cash dispensers, shops, traditional home cooking tavernas. It's a short walk into town with 'Mamma Mia' Style hidden squares and waterfront cafes where you can sit and sip cocktails while the world goes by. Relatively undeveloped over the past 20 years, this welcoming Greek village has plenty of beach front bars, some with nightclubs and restaurants all along the beach front, where you can sit by the waters edge.
