The No. 1 windsurfing spot on Rhodes!
The South of Rhodes holds a very special place that attracts surfers from all over the world: Prasonisi. This peninsula is connected to the main island by a narrow sandbank and delights surfers with its unique conditions.
On the east side of the spot there are perfect "laboratory conditions" for surfers. Here the winds from north and south meet and provide a constant breeze. This is further enhanced by the so-called Meltemi, a northerly wind that blows between May and September and provides even better conditions. On this side of the spot surfers will find perfect conditions for their tricks and maneuvers.
But only a few meters away on the west side of the spot, Prasonisi shows a completely different side: Here, boisterous conditions prevail and the waves can get very high. This side of the spot is not suitable for beginners, but experienced surfers will get their money's worth here and can let off steam in the high waves.
