Welcome to our new kite centre on Limnos
Season: June 1st to the end of September
KBC Limnos, the new KBC Kite- and Wingfoilcenter, is located in a true kitesurfing paradise, which is still an insider tip: a large shallow area, ideal for kitesurfing beginners, freestylers and wingfoilers, flat water, some wave outside in the south of the bay, very constant wind, thanks to the 'Meltemi', a long sandy beach and summer temperatures on the magical Greek island of Limnos.
You will experience a holiday close to nature in the luxurious Hotel Keros Blue directly on the kite beach with pool and restaurant, but you should also not miss discovering the history-rich island with all its sights. The centre is well equipped with our professional teaching team, the latest F-ONE equipment and offers you the usual KBC quality.
See you soon on Limnos!

Kite beach & area
The beach of Keros in the south-east of the island of Limnos is still an insider's tip for amazingly good kitesurfing conditions. Constant, reliable wind is brought by the "Meltemi", the prevailing summer wind from the north-east in the Aegean.
The conditions for kitesurfing and wingfoiling are very versatile: in the first 50 to 100 m you will find a waist-deep standing area - ideal for beginners. The bottom is sandy and flat, completely without coral or sea urchins. So you don't need shoes. Only at the outer ends of the bay are a few, easily visible rocks.
The headland to the north-east of the bay creates wonderful shallow water, ideal for freestylers. In the southern part of the bay, a nice wave is created when the Meltemi is strong, which offers good conditions for wave beginners because it rolls wide and long to the shore. The spot is perfect for beginners up to pro riders, freestylers and wave beginners.
Those who know other Greek islands know that fine sandy beaches are rare here: Limnos is one of the very few islands in Greece with a fine sandy beach. In the reviews, the "gorgeous" beach of Keros usually gets a one-star deduction because it is "too windy" - so what more could you want? Despite the ideal conditions, the kite spot is by no means overcrowded.
The kite bay is framed by an enchanting backdrop of fine sand, crystal clear water, wonderful flora with green pines and the desert lily and is home to some flamingos. Keros Beach is a Natura 2000 protected area.All-inclusive offers & booking

Limnos is the largest island in the northern Aegean and has around 17,000 inhabitants. Due to its compact size of only 30 x 34km, you can quickly get to all the important places on the island. We recommend renting a car, a bike or a scooter to be flexible on the spot, because besides water sports you will find a lot of things on Limnos that you should not miss. The island is rather flat with only gentle hills and is agricultural, but the infrastructure is well developed.Little rainfall and the constant winds from the north give Limnos a dry mesoclimate.
Fantastic cocktails await in the Airtime Bar in the balmy Greek nights under a wonderful starry canopy.Visit us at the bar at Keros Blue.
Food and drink
During your holiday at KBC Limnos, you'll stay at Keros Blue. Every morning, a buffet breakfast awaits you on the sun terrace in the Airtime Bar. In the afternoon, you can buy snacks at the bar. In the evening, you can eat à la carte in the Keros Blue restaurant. If you like to cater for yourself, you should choose one of the family villas with a small kitchen.
On the island in all the small villages you will find all kinds of tavernas offering mainly Greek cuisine. In the small tavernas you will find delicious delicacies in good company. Here you will find the true flavours of Limnos, lovingly prepared by the locals. Here you can sample many locally produced excellent products such as wine, cheese and wheat products - all of excellent quality - or eat freshly caught fish. For true foodies, we even recommend cooking and wine tasting courses, sunset picnics and the book "Taste Lemnos" to get to know the gastronomy and culture of Lemnos better.
For souvenirs, be sure to stock up on local products such as the famous cheese "kalathaki", wine, pasta, honey and "venizelika" - chocolate fudge and liquor with history!Learn more about Keros Blue
Neben idealen Bedingungen zum Kitesurfen hast du am KBC Limnos ein schönes, vielfältiges Freizeitprogramm mit Alternativen:

The history of the island goes far back into the past. According to ancient Greek mythology, Limnos was the island of Hephaistos, the god of fire and volcanoes. One myth says that he landed on this island when Hera, his mother, had a love quarrel with Zeus, his father, and when her son Hephaistos tried to intervene, he threw him off Mount Olympus. Hephaestus broke his leg when he landed on the island and was left lame forever. The islanders took care of him and in return the god taught them his art of iron forging.
Limnos came under Persian rule in the 5th century BC and joined the Athenian League after the Persian Wars ended. After the division of the Roman Empire, Limnos became part of the Byzantine Empire and a strong Byzantine castle was built to protect it. The island's geographical position and the safety of its gulfs strengthened its military position. After the fall of the Byzantine Empire, Limnos became the prey of pirate raids. The island was the subject of wars between the Venetians and the Turks and was finally liberated in 1912.On Limnos you can discover numerous historical treasures.

Wind & Weather on Limnos
Wind & Weather
On Limnos, the "Meltemi", the prevailing wind of the summer months in the Aegean, blows reliably from the north-east. It blows from April to October as a dry wind from northern directions from the Greek mainland towards the eastern Mediterranean. Limnos occupies a special position in terms of wind exposure: Limnos is situated in the extension of the Dardanelles, which are oriented towards the island similar to a narrow wind tunnel.
The Meltemi is perceived as pleasantly cool and usually brings good weather and clear visibility. It gives us medium-strong constant winds of mostly 16-23 knots. The wind is usually a little stronger in the morning hours and then decreases around 4pm. Only in spring and autumn can the wind sometimes come from the south. Then you can also expect rather stronger winds around 30 knots, rarely even over 40 knots.
Keros Kitebeach is the only Greek spot with wind until October.
Flight to Limnos
Day of arrival
There are daily flights to Athens and Thessaloniki from many European airports. In the summer season, three airlines fly daily. From Athens or Thessaloniki, you fly on to Limnos after a short transfer time.
