The Surf Hotel is just a few metres from the shore and on the windward side of the beach - which is without question the best location in Vassiliki. It gets a more consistent wind, cleaner air and smoother water - which gently shelves so you can launch and learn whilst being waist deep. A perfect venue for swimmers, beginner sailors and experts. Vassiliki bay is generally quite pebbley but “our end” of the beach gives a slightly sandier, gentler gradient to the shore, with emerald clear waters that make family and beginner sailing more fun and entertaining. The delightful harbourside village of Vassiliki is only 15 mins walk along the beach and offers a quaint village feel with lots of shopping, bars and inexpensive tavernas.
Restaurant / Catering
Breakfast is included in our package and is a hearty affair with cooked and continental options. The beach bar and restaurant* is open for lunch and you can find things like burgers, moussaka, salads or pizza which are priced at around £3-£7 for guests. We do offer optional Theme nights, BBQ's and restaurant meals (paid for in resort) so you can get to know the other guests and meet staff or prime your instructor for tips and advice! On other nights you can enjoy the local tavernas in Vassiliki or those closer to the hotel (3-4 mins walk). They offer inexpensive menus and a warm, friendly atmosphere with direct sea views. *The bar and restaurant are not affiliated to the hotel.
