Kite & Sailing area on Rhodes

Location of our kiteschool

13 km southwest of Rhodes airport, on the wild and green west coast of the island, you will find the village of Fanes. Known as the place of colours, where the local artist Lukas has created his work. The Meltemi Kiteclub and the Hotel Delfini with its unique atmosphere are located in the best beach location. A tropical garden with a cosy beach bar let the holiday feeling come up. The sunsets at Fanes Beach are always a special experience for the guests.

One of the few sandy beaches in the north-west of Rhodes as well as the regular side/ sideonshore wind from the morning onwards provide optimal conditions for kitesurfing. Due to the softly deepening water and the sandy ground, we have a standing area close to the shore, which makes the first flight practice with the kite and the following waterstart attempts easier. The spot offers everything for the beginner to the pro kiter, as flat water and wave areas alternate. The bay between Fanes and Kalavarda stretches over 6 km and offers space for every level.

Our wind conditions and the origin of the Meltemi

Rhodes is one of the Hotspots for kite trips in Europe, especially in the summer months, due to the reliable Meltemi. The Meltemi is a wind that dominates the summer wind conditions in the Aegean Sea. It is one of the Etesian winds that blow with great regularity from May to October over Greece, the Aegean and the eastern Mediterranean from northwest to northeast. These are dry, relatively cool winds, often stormy over the sea, which reach their greatest strength in the afternoon. They ensure good visibility and cloudless skies. Especially in the summer months Rhodes is one of the windiest areas in the Mediterranean and the Meltemi develops its greatest strength. Our main wind direction at Fanes Beach is side/side-onshore from northwest (from left). And should the Meltemi start to stutter, the thermal winds and guard rail effects of our spot will save us.
