Kouremenos is beloved for yet another reason – its northern winds that blow steadily almost year-round (between 4-7 Beaufort), making it the most ideal place for windsurfing and kitesurfing ventures (sail size between 4,5m – 5.3m). No wonder that the Kouremenos region is home to some of the largest wind turbine parks in Greece. Not to mention that the 2009 European Windsurfing Games were held right here!
A Kouremenos windsurfing
endeavour starts from the windsurfing school that operates on the beach, where you can rent the needed equipment. Then, feel free to explore the archipelago that starts flat near the coast (perfect for rookies, professional freestyle, and planning) and expands with small waves further out that enable more advanced surfers to practice or sharpen their wave-riding skills.
As for beginners wanting a beach start, the sandy shore and shallow waters lay the table for just that! And, if you are an expert surfer seeking a quieter spot to enjoy your favourite pastime, the northern end of the shore (Cape Tenta) is the place you probably need to be. Just take into account that the beach there is rather rocky and that you can only achieve a sea entrance from a cement dock.
Besides wind-related water sports, though, the Kouremenos shore hosts a captivating submarine cosmos with a particularly rich sea-floor that makes it utterly fitting for scuba diving and diving explorations.
