Keros beach is one of the best places to learn to kite and progress in Europe. A 4km sandy, safe bay with moderate Meltemi winds and turquoise colors provides the perfect setup for kiting. The surrounding area, away from mass tourism, is part of the Natura 2000 protected ecosystem, with sand dunes, salt lakes and unspoiled landscapes. Enjoy the panoramic view of Keros beach from your private veranda and stargaze into the dark night sky. Take a leisurely five-minute walk to one of the best kiting, wingfoiling and windsurfing spots in the world. Spoil yourself with every amenity that modern hospitality has to offer. Sleep close to nature, rest without compromise, and heal physically and emotionally beneath the Greek summer sun, the Meltemi trade winds and the gentle whisper of the Aegean Sea.
KITING SET UP
Keros beach is a sandy, shallow, safe beach. You are in waist deep water when launching or landing, and during your kite lesson. There is an abundance of space for you to ride and try out new moves. On the north side of Keros bay, you will find super flat conditions and you can ride over perfect turquoise waters. In the middle of the bay, there is small chop, assisting you in learning new jumping tricks. At the south end of the bay, you can find small, but nicely spaced out waves that provide a perfect introduction to wave riding.
WHEN IS BEST TO GO?
The Meltemi winds start in June and last until September, peaking in July and August. In May and September you might experience south winds that also provide perfect conditions at Keros. Limnos is a morning spot, which means there is good wind for kiting from 9am until 3pm. On windier days, the wind sticks around until later. In the evening the wind drops down and shifts offshore, providing a perfect terrain for foiling, or windsurfing and wingfoiling lessons.
Activities wise, you can give windsurfing or wingfoiling a go. For 2023, Surf Club Keros is also providing PADI-certified scuba diving courses. Furthermore you will also find a fleet of SUP boards (make sure to try out the Mega SUP with your friends and family!), canoes, and a 15ft Hobie Cat and a dinghy for you to use. Surf Club Keros also organizes island trips to interesting places – you can go sandboarding, visit the salt lakes, go on e-bike tours, visit wineries, or visit Myrina, the port town of Limnos, and have some mezes by the small fishing port.
