This resort is well established with those in the know as a top class windsurfing centre, so no doubt familiar to some in the UK. Thanks to the superb location, ideal conditions, uncrowded bay and state of the art equipment available we love it here.
Set on the beach front with a huge sandy beach, our club is operated by long-established specialists ‘Kefalos Windsurfing’ offering truly first class windsurfing equipment to suit all abilities.
Our beachfront accommodation offers a choice of hotel rooms and self-catering apartments to suit your budget.
Our main hotel is the Royal Bay, just two minutes walk from our windsurfing centre, with the Irene studios offering self-catering accommodation right next door.
The location is stunning, though the extensive range of top quality windsurfing equipment plus the idyllic windsurfing conditions are the real highlights of this centre.
Location & Weather
Kos is one of the most beautiful and largest islands in the Aegean (it is the third largest island in the Dodecanese after Rhodes and Karpathos and has the second highest population after Rhodes). The island’s main port is in the capital (also called Kos) and is 200 sea miles from Piraeus. As well as its capital, Kos has six large settlements/villages: Kefalos, Kardamena, Antimachia, Mastichari, Pyli and Zia.
The village of Kefalos with its choice of restaurants, cafes and shops is just a short stroll from the hotel. The wider area also offers great opportunities to explore, with archaeological sites such as the Asklepeion, the ancient home of Hippocrates the father of the medical profession, is well worth a visit. The attractive capital of the island is perfect for an evening out and it is all within easy reach.
This area is blessed with warm sunshine over 300 days a year. Temperatures from early May range from the low to mid 20s in the early and late season, up to the high 30s between June and September. The winds are generally very strong from Mid June to Mid September wither winds from force 4 to force 6 almost every day.
We have hotel and apartment choices available right on the beach. These are both relatively basic but with an excellent location. For something more luxurious, please call and speak to one of our team who can arrange a higher category hotel or villa that will be within walking distance of the windsurfing centre.
