Wind & Kite surfing
At Gialova Villas, the Mecca for wind and kite surfers is right on your doorstep: there are few waves due to the upstream island of Sphakteria, but the winds above are high on the Beaufort scale. Wind and kite surfers share the territory here.
Water skiing & wakeboarding
Ín the bay of Gialova, the conditions for these activities are excellent – again thanks to Sphakteria. The mornings are most ideal, of course, before the winds pick up. Water skiing and wakeboarding with top-professional trainers is offered directly at the Golden Beach (25-minute walk along the beach or a few minutes by car). Here, guests can also go kayaking and try out various other exciting sports.
Diving is possible throughout the entire year in Messenia, although the conditions are best during the summer monthes when the visibility range is up to 100 feet and the water temperature is an average of 24°C / 75°F. The Pilos Dive Center is a PADI-diving school, where beginners can get their licenses and advanced divers can participate in truly sensational excursions. From steep cliff faces (up to 200 feet) and intact reefs to sea turtles and rays, the waters here are home to many treasures.
