With a beach bar and water sports on offer it is the perfect place for families and the tranquility makes a nice change from other bustling beaches. Pervolia Beach is a famous destination for sports fans, usually getting quite crowded during weekends. Pervolia Beach is located very close to the main city and is a hot spot for kite-surfing enthusiasts of all levels. Although the beach is not particularly sandy, it is 10 km long with shallow waters, few swimmers, and constant winds from dawn till dusk. The crystal clear water and the shore break the waves. The strong thermal winds usually originate from the south, southwest which create the perfect conditions for freestyle, long distance and bump and jump kite-surfing. For those who want to improve their skills there are schools available on the spot lessons and practice. Heading inland away from the beach, there are open fields and many kite-surfers use them as launching and landing sites for their kites.
