Destination info

Destination Overview: Direct flights to an international airport, a ton of nightlife and parties, a very safe city, culture, museums, elegant cafeterias, incredible local cuisine, diving, 4x4 tours… Rhodes has it all.

For kitesurfing in Rhodes, there’s #nowetsuitrequired at this kitespot: both the water and air temperature is pleasantly warm. The kite season is May through September, and you can expect a reliable 14 – 22 knots.

In the chance you score a less windy week, there’s no shortage of activities and things to do. Rhodes scores a 5/5 rating for nightlife, family friendliness, and other activities. See the many local guides for numerous on and off-water activities day and night!

Best flat water & beginner kitespot: The best and most famous flat water kitespot is Prasonisi, the south end of the island (80km away), and Wetskillz organizes trips there. Theologos kite beach is another option that’s great for beginners and less crowded.

Best wave kitespot: There is no proper wave spot in the summertime. Kite beach is ideal for beginners on a surfboard with some small waves coming late afternoon (around 17.00-18.00).

Notable downwinders: Wetskillz organizes downwinders a couple times a week.

Significant wind patterns: The Meltemi wind provides a nice thermal boost that kicks in every afternoon. Most wind forecasts are not accurate for Rhodes, but if the direction is correct (WNW) then you should expect good wind.

After-kite food & drink recommendations: Wetskills organizes a bonfire once a week at the kitespot. Theologos village has a few options; Megusta bar and Billy’s place are favorites. And if you’re looking for a serious party, all you have to do is head into Rhodes city (20km away from kite spot) where there is hundreds of options.
