Aliki beach in Limnos island

Huge sandy beach with no crowds and stable wind - the first kite-only spot in Limnos

FlaminGokite is located at Aliki beach - huge sandy shore with stable wind. It’s a kitesurfing-only spot similar to the rest of the beach.

The water in front of the station is deep and our beginner area is shallow to the waist. Inside the water we have swells and small breaking waves at the shallow zone.

There’s plenty of space for setting up your kite gear and even more space for riding. We open at 10 AM and work till 8 PM. There’s no reason to rush in the morning because the best wind comes later on and stays till it’s dark. When there’s Meltemi wind, there will most usually be late-afternoon side-shore sunset sessions.
 

Wind Conditions

Most of the summer, the island of Limnos has the Meltemi wind. The main wind direction at Aliki beach is north-east. The wind usually starts in the middle of June and goes on till mid to late October. In May and the second part of October we have the south wind. During the off season (May and October), some west and east winds can occur, the west coming with a lot of gusts, as opposed to the east wind, which is quite clear, but may also blow during the high season. The north wind is mainly thermal wind in the afternoon, but, on rare occasions, may come with gusty stormy weather.

What people say about us
"This ist the most amazing Kite-Spot I‘ve ever met. The friendly owners of the station, who build it up, have a good attitude to nature and take care to keep these beautiful beach clean & wonderful. The passionated Kiteboarding teachers are caring individual about their students and make you feel secure. It’s very familiar with the people and the 3 dog-mascot. The water ist clean, no seagrass, and there are some waves when the wind gets above 13 Knots. The wind is mostly side/side-onshore and the spot is no crowded and ridable for beginners till pros with great fun. We were there with a 5 year old boy and with the good facilities and the friendly people it was perfect for the whole family! We hope that this beautiful place will be so lovely and calm when we come back again next year. Thanks a lot to the whole team of FlaminGoKitestation! Go on, take care, have fun!"
