Our Pick of the Top 5 Sports to try in Greece this Summer

Kids kayaking with Ocean ElementsKids kayaking with Ocean Elements

From gorgeous lush-green mountains to shimmering clear waters, Greece is a playground for a whole host of land and water-based activities. With so many to choose from, we’ve asked our partners Ocean Elements for their tips for great sports to try out this summer.

Acccompanying the kids around calm Mediterranean waters in single or double kayaks gives you a whole new take on the stunning Greek coastline – as well as allowing you to discover remote coves, secluded beaches and other hidden places you can’t reach by foot. Best of all, kayaking is a simple sport where no experience is necessary – just jump in and go!

Greece’s coastal trails and paths provide endless miles of stunning scenic routes to discover at your own pace, taking you to olive groves, pretty harbourside villages and magnificent stretches of coastline. Especially with kids, head out early morning or late afternoon to avoid the most intense heat.

A sport that has developed massively over the past decade, windsurfing can be learnt by all ages. One lesson is all it takes to be able to stand up and turn around, and equipment is so light and user friendly it won’t be long before you are flying along the waters with a massive grin on your face. Warm waters and reliable winds make Greece perfect for a windsurfing holiday.

Stand-up Paddleboarding
This relatively new sport developed after surfers in Hawaii started using paddles to boost the speed in getting on the waves. The introduction of larger, more stable boards has made it accessible to all, and the friendly, flat and warm waters of Greece are the perfect spot to find out what makes it so fun.

Dinghy Sailing
If you’ve never sailed before, you’ll be pleasantly surprised by how easy dinghy sailing is – and by the fact you’ll be able to sail solo immediately! Learning is especially easy in Greece with its warm waters and gentle winds, and dinghy sailing boats come in all shapes and sizes, from small single-person models to family-sized affairs.
