Nikiana Beach Club, Lefkas
"A week at the Nikiana Beach Club is the perfect addition to our Ionian flotilla."
Nikiana Beach Club is on the east coast of Lefkas island. This small beach front complex has 20 rooms, a fresh water swimming pool and a family run taverna set in a quiet location with stunning scenery. The beach is sand and shingle and is adjacent to the simple, traditional style property where nearly all rooms have either full or partial sea view. However, it is not without proper ‘mod cons’, with air conditioning, en suite shower / wc, a balcony, refrigerator and a TV with satellite channels in every room.
The Nikiana Beach Club occupies an idyllic setting along a small track just two minutes walk from the village centre. Here you will find the club built around a courtyard only yards from the long shingle and sand beach and olive trees. After a rewarding day exploring the island or relaxing on a sun bed around the pool, relax in your individually air conditioned room, before a stroll to the restaurant for dinner.
The restaurant and bar are perfectly positioned on the beach overlooking beautiful Nikiana Bay. The restaurant serves delicious examples of local Greek and international cuisine. The pool bar, which is open all day, serves refreshing cocktails, juices, soft drinks and icecreams. Enjoy a dip in the fresh water pool or a swim in the crystal clear waters of the sea before enjoying a range of inclusive water sports on offer in this idyllic setting.
The sailing club is run by a team of instructors and safety crew. Equipment on offer includes ten windsurfers with a choice of rigs, a range of sailing dinghies including two Toppers, two Laser Picos, four Laser Funboats, as well as two larger Omega dinghies and a Dart 16 catamaran. None of the equipment is more than 4 years old whilst much of it has been renewed over the last two years. There is also a 30 foot yacht based on the site for optional sailing courses and day trips.
The club sailing team offer continuous supervision and safety boat cover as well as advice and regular complimentary sailing clinics for beginners and intermediates alike. A full range of optional one and two day tuition courses are on offer for beginners and intermediates both adults and children from around 8 and over. These can be pre-booked or booked locally.
Accommodation is offered on a bed and breakfast basis. The family run taverna on site is too good to miss, however it's just a short stroll into the local town for a range of alternative dining venues.
The hotel's 25 rooms have all the facilities to ensure a relaxing and pleasurable stay. For your comfort, all rooms have air conditioning, refrigerator, shower and WC. In addition all rooms have TV and coffee making facilities. When stepping onto your private balcony you can enjoy sea or mountain views from all of the rooms. Rooms are cleaned daily and regular changes of sheets and towels are included for your comfort and convenience.
As a smaller club Nikiana has a really friendly atmosphere where everyone gets to know everyone and in that sense it's just like one big happy family. On the other hand it is not the place for lots of organsised activities and full programme children's clubs. As a safe and peaceful waterfront environment it is ideal for families that want to spend quality time together, enjoing the sailing and taking time out to explore the attractive local area.
The sailing team do organise some sailing sessions specifically for kids, whilst dinghy sailing and windsurfing courses are available for children old enough to participate (usually 8 years and over).
