The south-facing bay Finikounda is about six miles wide and is divided into three sections of the beach. On the long sandy beach west of the town
(gr. Anemomilos, engl. windmill) you will find ideal surfing and sailing conditions, as well as our water sport station.
The clean andclear water (Blue Flag) is standing-deep in the first few meters and then drops slowly. The usual cross-offshore wind brings us a perfect
calm water during the summer months, three islands are covering the bay and providing protection from strong wave at other wind directions.

Finikounda is an ideal family spot, since the typical wind days helps both beginners and advanced students, but also pro's to find their
matching conditions. Finikounda, although known for it's good wind conditions, is not a typical high-wind spot!
We just would like to give a hint that there is a spot with probably the highest wave of the Mediterranean Sea nearby.
If the weather conditions are matching we offer guided tours of these waves that come up to 4m.
