A bit of inspiration

Kefalonia is one of a group of islands on the western side of Greece in the Ionian sea. It is the largest of the Ionian islands and boasts the third highest mountain range in Greece. Parts of the island are now national parks, home to wild horses, golden eagles and other protected flora and fauna.

Watersports memberships

Safety for all villa club guests

Safety on the water is of course our first priority. Fully qualified RYA instructors run the beach operation and are vigilant both on the beach, and on the water in our registered rescue craft with handheld VHF radios, always working to strict safety ratios and other proven guidelines. Mandatory buoyancy aids, restricted sailing areas, sign in/out and a compulsory “safety clinic” at the start of the week are just some of the many things we do and are included in both watersports memberships.

Who’s it for ?

BB’s take…

Villa Club is great for all ages really. Families looking for their own independence with a self-catering villa and of course privacy, and families with older teenagers like to take advantage of the accommodation which is closer to the action – only walking distance to the buzzing town square of Lixouri “.

Families

It’s amazing for families.  We don’t run specific kids clubs or child care, however, our friendly beach team do all they can to get everyone on the water with group tuition sessions open to all ages and kids specific watersports sessions available through the week which get them making friends and having fun on the water.

Kit list

We have a fantastic range of kit from RS Sailing, Starboard, RDD, Fat Stick and Severne to name a few. Pre-booking isn’t needed, just wander down and off you go. We also have safety boats ready to go, and a full range of buoyancy aids for security. Here’s a selection of what we might have rigged and ready for you on the beach.

Sailing boats

  • 2 to 4 person dinghy

    RS Quest

    A fast modern 2 to 4 person dinghy with features that move the game forward. Big enough for an instructor and 2 or 3 pupils – perfect for Mum or Dad and youngsters – small enough to handle easily ashore and afloat. Durable roto-moulded polyethylene construction – space and stability – reefing, asymmetric spinnaker, trapeze, stowage and a host of other options. It’s not easy to make it all work but RS development team have nailed it on this boat.

  • Single-hander boat

    RS Neo

    A single-hander with a sparkling performance, easy handling and real durability, the RS Neo delivers maximum reward for minimum hassle. A step-up in speed without the demands of more radical designs. The RS Neo is accessible, exciting and great for a sail around the bay.

  • Compact boat for 2 or single-handing

    RS Zest

    The brand new compact boat that delivers more crew space and practical, enjoyable features than older generation rivals. Class-leading space for two sailors, yet small enough for convenient single-handing. This is a boat to get you onto the water and into the wonderful world of sailing – no hassle – no end to the fun.

  • 1 – 3 person

    RS CAT 14

    This boat takes the enjoyment and handling associated with beach cats to a new level. Stiffness and balance defy the cost-effective durability of the RS CAT14’s construction – making the boat perfect, not only for training and recreational sailing but also as a true performance pathway class. We’re excited – and we think you will be too.

  • 2 -3 person

    RS 500

    The RS 500 is a high-performance vessel, only available at Lixouri Bay Beach Club. It’s a fast and exciting trapeze double hander, used in world championship racing so it’s a vessel for intermediate to advanced levels only.

Paddle boards

  • The world’s most popular inflatable SUP

    Red Paddle Co. 10’6 RID

    If you could only ever have one Red Paddle Co board, the Ride 10’6” is the one we’d tell you to ride – it’s already the world’s most popular inflatable SUP, perfect on clear blue, glassy Greek seas for a little or big explore.

  • The ultimate group paddle experience

    Red Paddle Co. 17’0” XL RIDE

    Go big or go home with our largest board. Everyone can get involved with this giant inflatable SUP.

    Who is it for? Groups of kids, adults a whole family can fit….. Good fun for everyone! Just grab some paddles and head out into the sailing area

Windsurfing boards

  • Red Paddle Co. 17’0” XL RIDE

    Go big or go home with our largest board. Everyone can get involved with this giant inflatable SUP.

    Who is it for? Groups of kids, adults a whole family can fit….. Good fun for everyone! Just grab some paddles and head out into the sailing area

  • Severne Sails – Convert

    The Convert is a fully-featured freeride sail. Range from 4-7m. An obvious choice for any progressing windsurfer, the Convert is purpose-built to be easy to use. Weight is kept to a minimum, boom lengths are short and down-haul tensions are reduced for easier rigging and nice, soft handling characteristics.

  • Windsurf – Starboard Rio

    These are the boards that cover learning, progressing and planing for the first time. They are considered all-rounders because they are equally good at providing stability for beginners to learn and providing power for progressing windsurfers to get planing smoothly. Once planing, the Rios feel responsive and fun. These qualities also make the Rio the number one choice for dozens of schools and centres.

  • Starboard – Go

    Get going on the perfect board. The iconic and irreplaceable GO boards: the progressive boards for improving beginners to advanced windsurfing. The perfect first board that helps you advance from your first steps to fully planing, carve jibing.

Foil boards

  • 2 to 4 person dinghy

    Starboard – foil

    Flying over the sea without a sound, zipping along silently close to thirty knots. What could be more fun? The Foil 122 is a plug and play freeride foil board: thin for maximum foil control, with 100% sharp rail edges for early planing and a clean water release even when touching down. It is designed purely as a foil board.

    Foil boards are only available at Lixouri Bay Beach Club 

    Click here for more info about foil boarding

Kayaks

  • 2 to 4 person dinghy

    Sit on kayaks

    Having two seats, the popular Bay 2 Kayak also allows the transport of a child in the central seat. Easy to carry and with excellent stability.

Food

A Villa Club holiday is self-catering. There are numerous supermarkets and mini-markets in and around Lixouri, so easy to stock up.

Lixouri has lots of excellent tavernas, bakeries and cafes, all dotted around the townsquare.

Lunch & Dinner is available to purchase at the club

Don’t expect drab international fare – at the Club, you can expect to taste an excellent variety of locally sourced and fresh ingredients, served at the club taverna which is open for lunch and dinner daily. From classic Greek kitchen dishes, seasonal salads and freshly grilled sardines, to a hearty club hamburger we will ensure that all dietary requirements are catered for as well as fussy eaters too!

Crisps, ice creams and a range of other snacks, plus a wide selection of drink and cocktails are available from the beach bar 11am – 6pm daily.

When it comes to drinks, Kefalonia has 48 varieties of grape grown locally, producing some very fine, internationally recognised wines worth trying, along with some fantastic Hellenic beers, there’s plenty to sample and enjoy and all are very reasonably priced.

In the local area

Here are some options to check out in the local area:

  • A sunset meal at one of the best beaches in the Greek islands is also a must. Petani beach and taverna “Erasmia“. Only a 15 – 20 minute taxi ride this place is incredible – get there early for a swim and settle down for a wonderful eating experience.
  • Head into town and Lixouri square, 5 – 10 minutes in a taxi from the club (1 taxi for 4 people is ~€10 one way). A wonderful place to watch the world go by with countless cafes, tavernas and bars. Whatever you do, don’t miss the best ice cream in the world at “I-Scream” – it’s divine and we love it!
  • Lepeda Beach – only a short stroll from our Villa Club properties this taverna on the beach is, in our opinion, the best place to eat freshly prepared Greek food.
  • Apolafsi Complex – a local favourite serving delicious local and international dishes. Again, only a short stroll from our properties.

FAQs

Drop us a line if you can’t find your answer…

How busy do the Beach Club get?

We keep the numbers at around 90 at Lixouri Bay – even in high summer periods – so we can retain that “small & friendly feeling”. We steer away from pre-booking dinghies – and guests love that. You just wander down to the beach and grab whatever boat is available.

Can we use the water sports kit everyday?

Yes.

We are beginners – how do the ‘clinics’ work?

We make it easy, stress free and fun with no worries. We have an incredible team on the beach that will always be keeping you safe !

Day one will start with a safety brief where you learn the basics of being on the water. The beginner sessions start after the briefing. Here they will teach you the basics of sailing or windsurfing. If you enjoy your first taster session, then you can join in with sessions throughout the week to go from Zero to Hero!!

I have sailed/windsurfed before, are there any clinic to help me advance?

Yep definitely! At the start of the week, if you’re feeling like your skills might be a bit rusty, you can take a refresher clinic. Likewise we run various different clinics throughout the week covering all sorts of different topics

Can we book sailing tuition in advance of our arrival at a Beach Club?

There is no need to book! All of our teaching sessions are open! If there are lots of keen beans for a certain session we will run another for extra people. On day 1 we put on a beginner clinic for both sailing and windsurfing – throughout the week we run other clinics ranging from beginner to advanced clinics.

Do I need gloves for when I go out sailing club?

Gloves are a personal preference but if you would like to protect your hands from the rope, feel free to bring a pair. If you are a seasoned sailor and know you will be out on the water all day every day it may be a good idea. If you are a complete beginner and planning on pootling around the bay you probably won’t need gloves.

A Quick tip: A pair of old garden gloves with the fingers cut off will work just fine!

Are there Yoga sessions available?

We work with a fantastic local teacher who has been teaching Ashtanga yoga for years. This is offered locally, a short walk from your villa or beach house and is dependent on a minimum number of guests for us to run the sessions.

Can we hire bicycles?

Yes, bikes are available and inclusive from our beach club for guided rides, usually in the mornings before it gets too hot.

Are there any local walks?

Yes, there are some lovely local coastal walks and we can provide you with some routes to follow.

Is there the option to go Scuba Diving?

Yes, we work with a local partner who offer intro dives, more advanced dives including some caves and also tuition and certified PADI courses. Just let us know and we will forward their contact details for you to look into. All dives are booked locally in Greece on arrival.
