Greece is known for its good wind in summer and so many visit the famous islands of Rhodes, Kos, Limnos, Naxos, Karpathos etc.. But also on the mainland there are top kitespots, which are worth a visit not only in summer.
Greece is a bit further away, but it offers beautiful beaches and bays, warm people and great windy days. And not only on the islands.
Therefore, you should definitely visit the Greek mainland, preferably with a camper, but at least with a rental car.
Ab sofort ist unser zweiter KITEreiseführer: Kitesurfen in Griechenland, Festland in unserem Shop erhältlich.
We were the last summer 2019 for 4 months in the country on the road and got to know it intensively. We only went to beaches and places that we could reach by camper without a ferry.
We visited a lot of kitespots and beaches and the wind yield was very high. We were on the water almost every day. From strong wind to light wind, from lonely to very well known, from flat water to wave, everything was there.
Therefore, we can only recommend Greece for kitesurfing.
To be as flexible and spontaneous as possible, we recommend you to visit the country with a motorhome. So you have all your kite stuff always at hand.
Most kitespots are located so that you can ride almost to the beach, and freestanding is usually unobtrusive. Here, of course, it is natural not to leave any traces.
Something for everyone
On our tour we discovered and explored a lot. Now we want to give you a small overview of the well-known kitespots, where there is something for everyone.
They are also listed and explained in detail under the category: Kitespots.
It is one of the first kitespots on the western side of mainland Greece and often serves as the first port of call when you come off the ferry in Igoumenitsa. There is a large bay that is good for beginners and further practice and a shallow water area for the pros.
It is the northernmost kitespot in the Peloponnese, but belongs to the region of Western Greece. It is very wind resistant, especially in summer, but then it also gets very crowded. There you can meet the top riders from the world rankings and watch them train, or get tips. Due to its special shape, the kitespot offers small waves to super flat water for kitesurfing.
On the west coast of the Peloponnese you will find the Navarino Dunes. On the long sandy beach, the southern part is reserved for kitesurfers. There you will also find a kite school and good conditions for kitesurfing. Especially in winter there can be good waves.
This is the most famous and popular kitespot among Athenians. That is why it is usually well attended, but also safe from the wind. It has its pitfalls and is not necessarily the ideal kitespot. But you should have seen it at least once.
This spot also stands out due to its special appearance, forming a choppy and a shallow water side. It is quite windproof except for the winter and is especially popular in the summer. You can also stand super with your camper behind the kitestation.
Tip: In addition, I have created the group „Kitesurfen in Griechenland„ on Facebook. There you can invite others, exchange, give tips and share experiences.
