Best month for Windsurfing
Come in summertime and you will find everything surfers hearts wish for! The island stretches between Rhodes and Crete, and the Meltemi blows from the north through the high mountains. High wind days in July and August are the rule rather than the exception. However, in May, September and October steady winds also delight many windsurfers.
Gun Bay is a true high-wind spot where you can let off steam and forget the rest of the world. The flat water near the shore is perfect for practicing jibes and the spit off the coast guarantees your safety. Those who are looking for a real challenge can surf out of Gun Bay to Paradise Bay – a bay which definitely deserves its name. Here the wind is about 1-2 Beaufort stronger and the perfectly flat water delivers superb blasting conditions.
Chicken Bay offers ideal conditions for beginners, intermediates and freestylers, due to an 80 meters wide shallow water area. In Chicken Bay the wind also blows cross offshore but with 1-2 Beaufort less force.
Paradise Bay Flat water, stronger wind than at the main windsurf center. Here the wind is about 1-2 Beaufort stronger and the perfectly flat water delivers superb blasting conditions.
