Wind and water conditions

Paros lies at the heart of the Aegean sea, therefore it's blessed with "Meltemi", a strong dry north wind which blows from about mid-May to mid-September. Meltemi reaches its maximum during July and August. The wind usually starts in the early afternoon and dies out at sunset. Water in Santa Maria Beach is flat to choppy close to the beach and on the outside small waves are formed for jumps.

Other Watersports

Waterskiing & Wakeboarding

When the wind is calm and the sea is relatively flat then its time for Watersking or Wakeboarding using the power of our motorboat. For all levels lessons are available from our qualified instructors. We provide all of the appropriate equipment but you can bring your own if you wish. Our experienced driver will guarantee your satisfaction but above all your safety.


Stand Up Paddleboarding (SUP) combines surfing with kayaking but unlike surfing, you don’t need strong winds to paddleboard, and a very calm, flat water is best for beginners. SUP it’s an amazing full-body workout plus, it’s fun to get out on the water and enjoy nature, so it hardly feels like exercise.

Our center also offers canoes and small sailing boats for rental


Riding the inflatables is the ultimate fun activitiy for the whole family or group, not just for kids. We offer all types of inflatables rides: Banana, Sofa, Tube Rings, Aquaglide etc. Because we take your family safety very seriously we make sure all of our motorboar drivers are qualified and experienced. Ride the banana with your friends or family and see if you can stay on while the motorboard makes the turn.
