Typical weather conditions in our Greek Beachclubs
Greece’s high summer is as hot as you’d expect a Mediterranean country to be, although summer can have some cloudy or rainy days, expect bright, bright sunlight to be the norm.
Temperatures are usually in the 30s, with the hottest days arriving in July and August. If the high summer temperatures aren’t for you, spring and autumn still see plenty of sunshine. The sea may feel a little fresh in spring, but we find it's still plenty warm enough with a rash vest on.
Aeolian Village Beachclub - Meltemi winds blow slightly off-shore, great for sailing and windsurfing in the afternoon. The wind typically reaches force 2-5
Buca and Messini Beachclubs - The wind typically picks up around midday, blowing on-shore most days, with cross on-shore conditions on windier days. The typical wind force ranges from 3-4 with the most consistent conditions in June, July and August.
Cosmos Beachclub - A standard day in Vassiliki starts with a gentle onshore breeze (force 1-2), this coupled with a shallow sand bar off the beach creates perfect conditions for beginners and an ideal learning environment for developing skills. In the afternoon the thermal wind 'Eric' arrives producing a strong cross-shore breeze, the ideal flat-water playground for the advanced sailor. Due to the size of the bay and the cross-shore winds, there is a small amount of fetch, so conditions stay fairly flat, even in very high winds.
Typically, any forecast over 8 knots blowing in a westerly direction will give good planning conditions in the bay. The wind comes from the mountain on the right side of the bay, giving our location next to the mountain the best flat-water conditions with the wind coming through first and lasting the longest. Wind conditions are most consistent during the peak months of June through to early September. May and late September are more likely to see 50/50 for planing conditions in the afternoon.
Retreat Beachclub - The typical wind force ranges from 1-2 all season, with calm waters most of the time - perfect for paddle sports, water skiing and wakeboarding.
Vounaki Beachclub - Gentle morning winds build throughout the day to give a nice breeze in the afternoon, it's windier than the Retreat Beachclub further north and the perfect place to learn to sail or for intermediate to progress their skills. Further out of the bay, winds can build to a steady force 3-4 in the afternoon.
