Lefkada holds one of the top positions in the world when it comes to this amazing water sport. It has one of the ten best locations in the world and of the three best locations in Europe for windsurfing, namely the gulf of Vasiliki on the southern side of the island. Furthermore, the beaches of Myli and Ai Giannis, to the west of the town of Lefkada, attract numerous windsurfers not only from Greece but from all over the world.
There are many windsurfing schools and equipment shops ready to help the athletes and generally those who want to know the secrets of this sport.
The island of Lefkada has hosted twice the Windsurfing Freestyle European Championship (EFPT.net), in 2010 and 2015, in the gulf of Vasiliki and the beach of Ai Giannis, with the participation of hundreds of athletes from all over Europe. There is also a World Water Sports Festival that is organized in the gulf of Vasiliki, though not on an annual basis.
