There is an amazing range of activities included for all our guests. This gives you a chance to try something new, improve your fitness and get to know the beautiful countryside.
While there’s a huge range of classes and activities on offer, please don’t feel that you have to try everything. We want you to go home fully relaxed and completely recalibrated. If what you really want to do is lie on the beach in the sunshine for a while, swim in the glorious blue sea or relax by the pool with a glass of wine or two, then we’d encourage you to do exactly that!
Stand-up paddle-boarding is best enjoyed early in the morning, when the water is as flat as a mill pond and the sun soaks your skin with just the right amount of warmth. Paddle-boarding is great fun and an exhilarating way to keep fit while you enjoy an entirely different perspective of the world from the water. Initially accompanied by an expert instructor, you’ll have a great time while you are perfectly safe in our warm, tranquil waters. Feel free to also take a board out at any other time!
Use of the boards is 'unlimited' although practically conditions on the water will be a determining factor as to when they can be used.
We have some great rides lined up for you. You’re always welcome to join our free organised group rides or take a bike out by yourself and enjoy the freedom to roam around to your heart’s content. Bike rental is free.
Our unique Herbal Walk is perfect for foodies and anyone interested in natural remedies, many of our guests have found this an unforgettable experience. The fascinating and informative stroll into the olive groves is a great way to discover Lefkas’ impressive landscape and abundant flora. The gentle walk of approximately 3km is accompanied by an insightful talk by our friend Aris Kokotsis, who has over 20 years phytotherapy experience. He’ll show you a variety of herbs and plants and how you can use them for cooking and healing. Aris laces his talk with a healthy dose of fascinating anecdotes from Greek mythology. Botany and culture in one trip!
Our boat trip to the beautiful Agio Fili beach follows the undulating coastline from Vassiliki village along the east side of the bay. When you arrive at the turquoise waters of Agio Fili beach, you’ll be led in a short meditation in this most tranquil of surroundings. Afterwards, swim in the crystal blue waters and lie back on the beach, sunbathing in this enchanted place. You’ve a choice of hopping on the local ferry boat or you can return with our local dive centre boat, stopping en-route for a snorkel at one of the best sites in the bay. If you’re lucky, you’ll spot some dolphins and flying fish!
Healthy Options holidays in Vassiliki are on the doorstep of the best dinghy and catamaran sailing holiday centre in Europe. A 45-minute sailing taster session on a catamaran is included in your holiday as a great way to try this exciting sport for the first time. You’ll sail around the bay in the safe morning conditions with a qualified instructor who can teach you the basics, or you can simply sit back and enjoy the ride and views of the bay from another perspective.
There’s nothing more rewarding and grounding than a massage to soothe tired muscles and so we’ve included a half hour massage in your holiday. If you want to pamper your muscles some more, it is perfectly possible to extend your massage or book additional sessions during the week, though extra local charges would apply. We have a range of massage styles on offer.
If that wasn’t enough yet, there are plenty of other activities available in and around Vassiliki and we’d be delighted to organise these for you, just speak to a company representative in resort to learn more! Local charges apply
There are local boat trips from Vassiliki harbour that also go around the coastline to beaches such as Agio Fili and on the western coastline to Porto Katsiki.
Vassiliki has some of the best wind and water conditions for you to try windsurfing either for the first time or to brush up on your skills if it’s been a while! If you’ve never tried this amazing sport before but would like to give it a go, Club Vass next door to us offer windsurfing lessons (at a local charge) for beginners, on lightweight user-friendly equipment in small groups.
