Marmari is amongst the best destinations in Greece when it comes to reliable wind. Due to the shape of the mountains, a venturi effect is created through the small straight between Euboea Island and Petalios Island. This effect is the strongest with a Meltemi (Northern) wind. You can expect winds from 15 to 35 knots so we recommend bringing 7-12 meter kites. You will use your 9m the most. The spot also works with South, West and North-west winds. The biggest city in the are is about 20kms from Marmari, this coastline offers beautiful blue waters and nice waves for downwinders when the South winds blow.
The little village of Marmari in the south of Evia is a tourism destination recently discovered by European surfers who mainly want to relax in a quiet multi activity destination, enjoy fresh and delicious greek plates and pure nature. The night life in the area of Marmari is not one of the favorites but there are a few bars that play international music and serve fresh made cocktails. In Karystos, which is 15 minute drive from Marmari, there are many bars and plenty of people both tourists and locals that party till the sunrise.
Marmari is a spot of unique beauty and unmatched wind conditions. The surf center is located on the beach and just five minute drive from the small fishermen village of Marmari. In front of the center is a big sandy beach with plenty of space to set up your equipment and to land/launch your kite. The spot has incredible sunsets and a nice view of the Petalios Islands.
