Learn to Sail at Beach Clubs in Greece

103 4
If the idea of having all the amenities you need close by during a break abroad appeals to you, consider booking into beach clubs in Greece during your next holiday.
The clubs are often located at the sea's edge, boasting a beach, restaurants, spas and activities, all in one convenient place.
And the beach clubs of Greece are no exception.
To holiday in truly beautiful surroundings, head to the club in Vounaki, at the base of the Arkanika Mountains.
This sheltered bay is an ideal location in which to enjoy a Greek break by the sea as it is well placed to make the most of the water.
If you're looking for learning to sail holidays then you'll have come to the right place.
The beach club here offers expert tuition for all levels of sailor, whether you're a beginner or advanced.
Instructors are Royal Yachting Association qualified so you can be sure you'll be in safe hands on dinghy holidays in this part of Greece.
From funboats to Laser SB3s, there are all kinds of vessels for you to man, as well as tutoring for younger members of the family.
And if you'd like to enjoy some parts of your break alone, professional childcare is offered at the club, too.
Infants aged from four months can be cared for by nannies, while older children are sure to love the kids' clubs.
In the meantime, you might like to try out some of the other activities on offer, such as windsurfing, wakeboarding and waterskiing.
Childcare is also available in the evenings if you'd like to visit one of the beachside restaurants and enjoy some traditional Greek cuisine and a glass of wine.
On land, why not have a go at a game of tennis? Or take the whole family mountain biking to explore some of the beautiful scenery up in the hills.
And if you fancy a relaxing afternoon, head to the beach and lie back on the sand while the youngsters paddle in the sea.
During the evenings, you might like to make use of the childcare available to visit some of the area's lively bars.
The resort is generally quite quiet and trouble-free, even in the evenings.
If you'd like to explore your surroundings, a trip onboard a day yacht might be a great way to do so.
Spend some time enjoying the fresh sea air and stop off at some of the fishing villages that line the coast here.
Call in at some of the local taverns or stop off at a waterfront restaurant for a meal of fresh bream, bass or even octopus.
To explore some areas close to Vounaki, you might like to hire a car.
About 15 minutes away is the coastal town of Paleros, from where you can reach Levkas, Ithaca and Cephalonia by boat.
But the town itself has some fascinating attractions in the form of ancient ruins.
Levkas is a pleasant and friendly location full of cafes and boasting one of the Ionian Sea's calmest harbours, while Ithaca is a beautiful island full of pebbly coves to explore.
Cephalonia is a large island boasting some picturesque beaches and green scenery and was made famous in the film Captain Corelli's Mandolin.
North of Paleros is a castle road leading up to Anaktorion - a former colony of Corinth - and on to the remains of old antique temples at Agios Petros.
There's also a medieval castle on a hilltop to be spotted in these parts, close to the 12th century Divine Wisdom chapel.
Continue along the road and you'll reach the spot where a battle took place between Octavian and Marc Antony as well as the ruins of a Venetian citadel.
Call in at the local archaeological museum to gain an even greater insight into the rich past of the area.
Back in the town, if you'd like to carry on with your exploration, you might decide to hike up the mountain at the back of the marina.
As you climb, you're sure to catch a hint of wild thyme and oregano in the air, as the herbs grow freely and abundantly here.
And once you've climbed to the top, make sure you have your camera handy as the views are second to none.
After all that exercise, you might be in need of some pampering, so why not take a look at the treatments on offer at the spa here? Or if you've still got energy to burn, watch some traditional Greek dancing or theatre in the town square, or treat the youngsters to a puppet show before preparing to take your flights back home.
