Gentle winds that build in the afternoon will grow your sailing confidence. The sea in this part of the South Ionian rarely gets beyond a gentle ripple, so it’s great for all of the available water sports. Kayaking and standup paddleboarding are both easy to master in the calm waters and the coastline is full of interest, so get out there and explore. Windsurfing is suited to beginners and non-planning intermediates who will love the easy launching and wide open bay, as will the dinghy sailors.

The nearby Acarnanian Mountains provide superb cycling terrain. Challenging climbs on quiet roads and a great range of trails will have roadies and mountain bikers grinning from ear to ear. For a more relaxing experience on two wheels, venture along shady tracks to rural villages and secluded beaches. There are guided rides each day or the bikes are available for freeriding.
Back at Vounaki, enjoy tennis on one of the two courts and hone your skills with our professional coaches. Why not try fitness, Zumba, stretch and interval training classes too?
