How the Club Works

Having woken up to amazing views over the azure Ionian, guests start their day with a hearty breakfast before heading out on the water to enjoy the included watersports. Sailors and windsurfers can sail freely on our huge range of equipment (see below) or partake in a wide variety of courses and tuition suitable for all levels. During school holidays, children and teenagers enjoy the small and safe environment along with the water-based kids’ clubs, a sure way to make the best of friends.

After a wonderful day, on or off the water, our bar offers delightful cocktails and cold beers, providing a perfect opportunity to talk about the day’s adventures. On certain evenings, we host social events with an atmosphere of warmth and excitement, where laughter and conversation flow effortlessly, while on other nights, you can choose to spend time at the club or venture further afield.

Facilities

The map shows the layout of the club with a central courtyard, shaded by olive trees, surrounded by the room blocks (more info). There is a beach all along the front of the club that culminates in our beach reception, the home of all the sailing, windsurfing, and other activities. We have a freshwater swimming pool located on the terrace, along with plenty of sunbeds and shade to enjoy the spectacular views of the Ionian Sea.

Right in the center of everything is our excellent taverna, which is the hub for breakfast and the club’s social night, along with serving Greek homestyle cooking at reasonable prices.

Location

The beach club is located right in the center of the village of Nikiana, itself nestled in a large bay in the northeast of Lefkada. The village of Nikiana is a charming place with numerous shops, restaurants, car hire, bars, and other facilities. Ten minutes to the north is the island’s capital, Lefkada, with its countless tavernas, restaurants, and cafes on the seafront and tucked among the labyrinth of alleyways that form the old town. To the south of Nikiana is the lively resort of Nidri, with a bustling seafront from which day boats and ferries offer a variety of excursions to nearby islands such as Meganissi.

Regular buses run between Lefkada and Nidri, stopping in Nikiana, with others continuing to other parts of the island. You can also hire a car locally to explore the stunning west coast beaches and enchanting mountain villages.
