Windsurfing and kitesurfing in Lefkada are the two most popular sports on the island. The strong winds that blow in summer months from midday until late in the afternoon attract many tourists for windsurfing in Lefkada. The most popular spot for Lefkada windsurfing is Vassiliki, a large bay on the southern side of the island, ideal for all levels, from beginners to advanced.
The main spot for Lefkada kitesurfing is Agios Ioannis, a large beach close to Lefkada Town where super thermal wind (15-20 knots on average) blows steadily almost every day in summer, from April to September.
