The pool bar has a unique design with a canopied roof shading you from the sun. It’s a great place to chat over the day’s adventures. Stop by for a sundowner and catch the sun setting over the pool

Your room will be on the ground or first floor of small whitewashed buildings with terracotta roofs (both ground and first floor have steps to access the room). Close to the pool and beach, all have a small balcony or a terrace which opens onto the lawns. Garden room types include ‘economy’ and ‘club’ twin, double and interconnecting rooms and suites.

On the water
Dinghy sailing, windsurfing, kayaking, stand-up paddleboarding, water skiing and wakeboarding are all-inclusive watersports, so there’s nothing to stop you having a go and joining in with the on the water fun!
The bay is big (stretching up to 1km offshore and the whole width of the bay) and the water lovely and clear. With stronger winds in the morning, sailors and windsurfers will have a great start tp their day. In the afternoon, conditions tend to be better for beginner sailors and windsurfers. There’s tuition for all levels with RYA Start Sailing and Basic Skills together with clincs, racing and regattas. For windsurfers, there’s tuition available up to the intermediate planning level.
Cross on-shore wind tends to be stronger in the morning, often reaching Force 4+ before dropping off in the afternoon. The typical wind force ranges from 2-6, with the most consistent conditions in July and August.
On the shore
Back on land, the inclusive activities include; mountain biking, tennis and fitness classes including Bootcamp, Zumba and stretch.
The wild and unspoilt landscape is crammed with mountain bike trails. Set off on a guided ride to tackle the ascents and be rewarded with the rush of epic off-road descents. If that’s not for you, there are plenty of easy-going rides, exploring local villages and olive groves. If you’re looking for a challenge, you’ll enjoy the ride out to the radio masts and the mainly off-road descent from the high point of 324m. At the other of the adrenaline scale, there’s a leisurely ride to Myrina and the castle.
Families and kids
It’s great for families, with an easy, short 30-minute transfer, lots of wide-open spaces, and even a castle to explore in the local village.
