Just wanted to leave a POSITIVE comment for Mavratzis Beach Watersports. We called by the beach as part of our "Sunkissed Cruise". The watersports equipment was all brand new, top quality gear, and the prices were SLIGHTLY better than at Tsilivi Watersports (although Tsilivi Watersports jet-skis are ancient). All in all, Mavratzis beach wins hands-down! I've attached pics of me and my daughter prior to the jet-skiing, and one of the jet-ski (to show the quality of the machine!)

we have visited zante twice on the first occasion we went to st nichols bay this time we went to visit TAKIS  on MAVRATZIS BEACH his watersports are by far the best on the island takis and his staff make you feel safe and sucure the prices are very reasonable and his equipment is in A1 condition and i m sure that the next time we visit the island we will make it one of our first port of call

THANKS Takis for making our holiday great

We booked into the Louis complex above Mavratzi as a last minute deal.
The beach was most certainly not as advertised within the travel brochure. It was not clean, it was TINY and we went in Sept. Can't imagine it in the peak season!
I truly believe it's imported sand and because it's so small the whole beach constantly stinks of the diesel from the watersports.
The sunbeds are so close together you could possibly get pregnant from the stranger lying next to you.
Don't go.
If you are reasonably mobile, climb the track at the end of the beach and walk to 3 lovely beaches within about 15 mins. The climb is a bit hard for 200 yrds or so then evens out.
We were party of 4 in our early 50's and we managed it!

Awsome watersports.  Ringos were the best fast,safe,and fun.  Parasailing was from a paracraft, smooth and safe,I might ad great view saw Gerakas Beach from the other side of the Island.  Best watersports, owner is actually from California and speaks fluent English great guy.  Definately a good choice, beach was like a private beach not too crowded and very beautiful.

Fantastic beach just short of being cosidered a private beach.  A must beach to see.

Great beach, fantastic watersports, a place you must experience.  Thank you to the guys at the watersports for a wonderful time and a good laugh, my family really liked the extra time on the ringos.

The Sand was quite full of cigarette ends and so forth despite the presence of little litter pots by every parasol, so you couldn't walk too far bare foot without placing your foot in something nasty. The swimming was very good however, very gentle waves and a slow and gradual slope into the water. The watersoprts are great, flyfish is phenomenal(25 euros a pop), i wouldn't advise children below 14 go on flyfish as you need quite a bit of strength to hold on. Its not a beach with much posing potential, most of the women whom choose to tan topless on there, you'd rather prefer they kept tops on. drink lager or water as wasps tend to come and land in everything else.


Never go on the Flying Ringos. I am usually ok on fast rides etc but this was the worst thing I have ever done. Paragliding was good though.


on average how much did it cost

Where is Mavaratzis Beach and is it possible to get there by bus etc.... From Laganas?

Mavratzis Beach was increadably beautiful. The watersports were uncomparable to the other two locations we visited St.Nickolas Beach, and Argasi. These people truly have the best watersports center we've seen. Ski Nautique, and MASTERCRAFT tow boats, not to mention their parasailing boat that winches you in and out with out you worrying about a thing, extreamly safe. This is were my husbant and I chose to parasail as opposed to the other locations that use a launch platform. In Cyprus they don't even permit launch platforms, just paracrafts. The Jet skis were the latest Yamaha modles, very stable and fast,compared to the relics that are used on other beaches. If you like ringos, Mavratzis has these new flying suaser ringos that ride like a roller coaster, yet you don't fall off, all the fun without needing a cork for your bum. And for all those that complain about the prices of watersports, if your going to do watersports why not get the best value for your money since the prices are about the same all over the island. We belive that Mavratzis Beach may just be the best watersports we been to in Greece.

This is a lovely secluded beach with plenty to offer in terms of food, drink and watersports. It's nearest (& only) hotel seems to be the Royal Palace but it's situated well within walking distance of Gerakas Bay and St Nicholas Beach. Well worth a visit. Sun loungers & umbrella = 8 euros for the day.


One of my occupations is Ski Instructor,so I went looking around the Island for watersports since I heard from our rep: that their were a few around on the Island, to make things short the best that I found was at Mavratzis Beach, All new equipment, and some that you find in very few places,a parasailing boat that winches you in and out of the boat,good and safe boat drivers, the price was basically the same as the rest around the Island, which was fare for europe,in an overall pictutre I would have to say that it was the best watersports set up on the Island.
