Alacati Windsurf Clinic

Exciting news! I am so happy and proud to announce the dates for the 2nd year of my Alacati Clinics after a very successful and fun week in 2019 (and unfortunate cancelation of 2020 due to COVID).

THE LOCATION:

Alaçatı is an idyllic village situated on the west coast of Turkey, only one hour  drive from the airport in İzmir. Known primarily for its stunning natural stone villas and small winding café-filled streets, Alaçatı has a growing reputation for something Turkey is not immediately associated with: windsurfing.

Every year between 8,000 and 10,000 professional and amateur windsurfers from the United States, Australia and Europe flock to the turquoise waters of Alaçatı Bay to either participate in a variety of internationally recognized windsurfing competitions or hone their skills.

The surf schools of Alaçatı are busiest between May and October when the weather boasts a constant and reliable wind. This constant breeze is suitable for all skill types though beginners benefit most due to the favorable conditions of shallow and flat water; which however is also perfect for freestylers, slalom and everyone who just wants to blast around and improve their skills.

Combine this with the gorgeous local scenery and cosmopolitan vibe and you can quickly understand why Alacati is continuing to enhance its reputation as not only a windsurfing Mecca, but also as the must visit destination in Turkey, so much so that it is now challenging Bodrum for the title of Turkey’s most stylish Aegean resort. 

Izmir is very easy to fly to with daily and cheap charter flights from everywhere in Europe. Due to the economical crisis that is hitting Turkey, which is very sad for the local people, Turkey has became a relatively cheap tourist destination.

We are staying in the legendary and beautiful Zeytin Konak Hotel. Although it is only five minutes walking distance from the center of Alaçatı,  they offer a quiet and calm stay. They are known for the best Turkish Breakfast in town

Zeytin Hotel consists of four separate mansions with two swimming pools and a beautiful garden. It has a little bar where you can buy home made healthy juices, healthy snacks and more.

Besides the standard rooms, there are also special rooms with bay windows, fireplaces, kitchenettes or connecting room if you like to make an upgrade.

The windsurf school Bubi where we are renting has all the new Fanatic and Duotone gear and is located at the best spot at Alacati Bay. It’s only a ten minute drive by bus transfer which is waiting for us every morning after breakfast.

They are super professional and very happy to help you pick the right gear and to get ready. They have changing rooms, showers, lockers and everything we need.

After the first session you can have a lunch break at one of the many and tasty beachfront restaurants before hitting the water again.

After the afternoon session the transfer will bring us back to the hotel where you can relax in the swimming pool, have a drink or join for some stretching. In the evenings you can go out for dinner in the beautiful city center of Alacati with plenty of amazing restaurants and nice little streets to wander around or you can enjoy a calm night having a lovely fresh dinner at the hotel. A few evenings we will go out for dinner all together, where we will show you the best and most tasty restaurants in town.
