Kremasti is most important kite spot in northern Rhodes. There are excellent kitesurfing conditions and a wide
choice of accommodation, from budget to upscale.
In the morning, the wind is mostly weaker. One can sleep late without missing too much. After noon, the wind gets stronger, caused by a combination of Meltemi and thermal effects. The wind speed during the summer is usually 4-6 Bft (11 to 27 kn). The wind direction is sideshore.
Near the shore, the waves are smaller because of the coastline. Further out, there is the swell of the open sea. The beach is wide and consists of a mixture of sand and pebbles. There is a shallow water area of about 15 m. On the beach of Kremasti you can find a kite center.
