The wind conditions in Marmari
The North wind, called the Meltemi, blows side on-shore from the right in front of our windsurf centre at the Grecotel Royal park or a bit more on shore at our other centre based near the Marmari Beach Hotel and Caravia. Both spot are really safe and risk free with this direction of wind. This is a 50 metres long sandbank, no reefs or rocks and no currents or nasty creatures; just great !
