Location: Prasonisi


At the southern most point of Rhodes lies the little known spot of Prasonisi. Well off the tourist trail, this is a rural area where a few shops and several small tavernas complete the village scene. There is limited nightlife, so for more action, Lindos is a good alternative. However, the sailing conditions here are so good you won’t want to leave. Set against a backdrop of green cultivated fields and soft rolling hills, the sea at Prasonisi is a dramatic contrast, with a mix of deeper blue water and white foaming waves.

The sailing here is completely unique, with both flat water and superb waves close to hand.  Prasonisi has two bays divided sitting back to back, with the wind blowing across to give the choice of conditions. The ‘Meltemi’ wind blows hard during the summer months usually 20-30 knots. It is accelerated by the local ‘Venturi’ system, with very powerful results, in both strong offshore flat water speed sailing and radical onshore wave sailing, over the sandbank. The sandbar creates waves which are between 1-2m and can be more on big days. Along the sand bar there is a 20m wide strip which is shallow enough to stand in for training. This venue is best for competent sailors, although a powerful safety boat is on standby should you need assistance.
