The small village Fanes is located on the wild and green west coast of the island, about 13 km (8 miles) south of the airport of Rhodes (Greece). Here you will find the Meltemi kite club with our water sports station in the best beach location as well as the hotel “Delfini” with its beach bar. One of the few sandy beaches in the north-west of Rhodes as well as the sideshore -sideonshore winds (which occur regularly in the morning) provide optimal conditions for kite surfing. Due to the shallow water and sandy bottoms we’ll have a standing area close to the shore which makes the first tries with the kite and the following starts into the water easier. This place is good for beginners and advanced kite surfers since you’ll find shallow areas and waves. The bay between Fanes and Kalavarda extends over 6 km (3,7 miles) and offers lots of space.
The Meltemi Kite Club is one of the schools licensed by the VDWS (watersports association) and works with the latest teaching methods and security standards. Our kitesurfstation was newly built in 2014 and will provide all the amenities a kitesurfer can wish for.
