Daphne's Club Hotel Apartments is situated just a few steps from the beach, which is just fine for kite and windsurfing on windy days and three kilometers away from one of the best 16 kitesurf spots in Greece (as stated in the Greek kitesurfing community). Also, an hour’s drive away is one of the best - if not the best - kitesurfing spot in Greece, Akrotiri (Cape) Drepano in Rio.

Daphne’s Club Hotel Apartments is situated in the small village of Sykia, two kilometers from the town of Xylokastro. The beach, where you can go swimming or sunbathing, lies less just a few steps from the hotel. Access to the beach is free. There are no umbrellas and beach chairs to rent, but Daphne’s Club Hotel Apartments provides you with both! There are also beach toys for you to take to the beach, such as rackets, Frisbees, and inflatables. The beach is made up of small pebbles and the sea is of normal depth.

The “Pefkias” seaside pine forest, which also starts practically at its doorstep, is a wonderful place to go walking, jogging, cycling, taking the stroller, or meditating. It also provides much-needed shade from the summer sun and heat, so especially if you have children, it’s a good idea to sit under the pines instead of on the beach.

The village of Sykia

Taking the path opposite the hotel you enter Sykia. Sykia is a small and picturesque village, with a few seafront tavernas, a church, a children’s playground, the remains of an Ottoman tower, and the early 20th-century villa of the famous poet Aggelos Sikelianos.

The town of Xylokastro

At Xylokastro, you will find a wide choice of tavernas, bars, and clubs, as well as two open-air cinemas (their daily programs are available in the reception area), a spa, the Tennis Club of Xylokastro, and a marina. The small town of Xylokastro, whose name means “wooden castle”, is a typical small Greek coastal town. Its 5,000 residents live off the land, cultivating citrus, olive and apple trees, as well as vines for the production of both wine and raisins.
