Our Beach Clubs in Greece enjoy fantastic beach front positions in beautiful surroundings, so we more than anyone understand the importance of location.

Nikiana Beach Club has proved popular, especially with our regular clients, thanks to the friendly atmosphere and its idyllic position in a beautiful beach front setting.

Our clubs offer a great range of Sailing Dinghies to suit all ages and experience levels along with Windsurf Equipment, Kayaks, SUPs and a Day Yacht for day trips and training.

RYA Training CentreNikiana Beach Club is an RYA Training Centre and we offer a huge range of courses for Dinghies, Multihulls, Windsurf and Yachting.

Club Overview

Nikiana Beach Club scored the highest ratings amongst our clients last summer and our formula of smaller, friendly and welcoming ‘taverna style’ clubs like this has certainly won us many regular guests.

Located in the village of Nikiana on the island of Lefkas (Lefkada), this small and perfectly formed beach front complex has 32 rooms, a fresh water swimming pool and a very good family run taverna in a quiet location with stunning scenery.

The beach is sand and shingle and it’s a simple, traditional style property where many of the rooms have either full or partial sea view.  Accommodation is generally on a bed & breakfast basis although we are now offering a Club Board Package. Unlimited Sailing, Windsurfing and other watersports is included at our excellent beach setup with lovely conditions and experienced instructors.


Nikiana is located on the east coast of the delightful island of Lefkas combining the charm of an island with the convenience of being connected to the mainland by a causway.

Nikiana itself lies a few kilometres south of the capital, Lefkas Town which is well worth exploring, with countless tavernas restaurants and cafes on the sea front and tucked amongst the labyrinth of alleyways that form the old town.. To the south of Nikiana is the lively resort of Nidri, with bustling seafront from which day boats offer a variety of excursions to the nearby islands such as Meganissi. Lefkas itself is well worth exploring by hire car with enchanting mountain villages and the stunning west coast beaches against a dramatic mountain backdrop.

On the mainland, history enthusiasts will find plenty to interest them with the ruins of ancient Nikopolis and the ancient amphitheatre of Dodoni within reach for a day trip. You can also reach the interesting towns of Preveza and the regional capital Ioannina in a stunning mountain lakeside setting


Reliable sunshine is virtually guaranteed during the season between early May and late October, with temperatures ranging from the low 20s in early and late season up to the high 30s in late June through August.

Flights & Transfers

Sunday morning charter flights from Gatwick to Preveza with afternoon return. Flight Time 3 hrs. Regional charter flights from Manchester, Edinburgh, Bristol, and Birmingham available on request.

Direct road transfer to from Preveza Airport takes between 30 & 40 minutes and is available on a private or shared basis.

Hotel Facilities

Nikiana Beach Club occupies an idyllic setting along a short single track road, just two minutes walk from the village centre and built around a courtyard, only yards from the long sand and shingle beach, shaded by olive trees. The setting is truly idyllic with a stunning mountain backdrop, the mountains of the mainland, as well as the islands of Meganisi, Kalymnos and Sparti clearly visible across the inland sea.

Most of the rooms overlook the beach and the fresh water swimming pool which is directly adjacent to the beach bar and taverna. The taverna and bar are perfectly positioned on a shaded terrace directly overlooking the beach and beautiful Nikiana Bay. The pool bar, which is open all day, serves refreshing cocktails, juices, soft drinks and ice creams.


The excellent taverna has proved very popular with our guests. With an a la carte menu of Greek homestyle cooking, a variety of snacks and grills all at reasonable prices, it is no wonder that the taverna is a guest favourite!
We recommend the signature “Naughty Nicky” cocktail after a day on the water!


The hotel’s 32 rooms are located in four houses, Aeolus, Thalassa, Simos & Maria, all set around a central courtyard with many rooms enjoying cracking sea views. Most of the rooms have a double and single bed although there are a number of family, twins and doubles available.

For your comfort, all rooms have air conditioning, refrigerator plus en suite shower and WC. Most rooms have been refurbished recently and feature a TV & kettle.

Do I need a visa for my holiday in Greece?

No, a tourist visa is not required for entry to Greece.

How much cash should I take with me?

Obviously this will depend on what your plans are, but generally you can expect to pay around 15-20 Euros per person for an evening meal. Although some places take card, it is good practice to have enough cash with you to cover any bill. Cash points are available on the main street. The Beach Club Taverna takes cards and you can also place any items on your room and pay at the end.

Do I need to buy everything at the club?

No. You have a fridge in your room as well as tea and coffee making facilities. You are welcome to buy suppliers from the local supermarkets to store in your fridge during your holiday.

Do I need a sailing license?

No, our club welcomes sailors of all abilites, from complete novices to racers, and everyone inbetween. As an RYA Training Centre, you will have the opportunity to gain your first or additional RYA qualifications during your holiday.

Are there any free sessions?

Yes, clinics, kids clubs and end of week regattas are all free of charge and available to everybody.

Is there Wifi at the club?

Yes, free Wifi is available in the taverna.

Do I have to eat at the club taverna?

The Taverna in the club is a firm favourite with Greek locals, which is a great endorsement. You are, however, under no obligation to eat there and the village of Nikiana has many alternatives as well as the main town of Lefkas and the lively Nidri, both a short taxi or bus ride away.

Should I pre-book RYA training or yacht cruises?

For the months of July & August we would recommend booking as the demand is extremely high. Throughout May, June and September booking in resort is fine.

What wind conditions can I expect?

Generally the prevailing wind is from the North and the strength ranges from force 2 to force 5. Light breezes in the morning are great for beginners and those familiarising themselves with new kit, with good cross-shore breezes in the afternoon to keep everyone entertained.

Can I always sail, regardless of wind strength?

Our experienced beach club team are always on hand to ensure the safety of all of our guests at all times. This may occassionally mean that they deem it necessary to close the beach if the wind strength dictates this. They will always try to organise other fun activities, including joy rides on the larger dinghies and multihulls should this be appropriate.

Are there any hidden costs?

No, use of all equipment is available during your holiday for free. There is a charge for RYA Courses, Private Lessons, Yacht Trips and some other activities.

Can I sail anything?

Yes within reason. Should you wish to sail a dinghy that you are unfamiliar with such as a Skiff or Multihull we will provide you with a familiarisation and joyride courtesy of Seafarer to get you going. This is obviously subject to possessing the relevant experience levels.
