Prasonisi (the Greek word for green island) is a cape at the southern-west part of the island of Rhodes. In the summer when water levels are low, it is a peninsula attached to Rhodes. In the winter with water levels high, Prasonisi becomes an island. A settlement that contains motels, restaurants, and stores is nearby.
There are two sandy bay areas, one facing the Aegean Sea with good waves, and the other in the Mediterranean Sea less windy and more family- friendly.
The kitesurfing season in Prasonisi starts in May and lasts till October. During July and August, the average wind speed is 15 to 30 knots. In May, June and October days with weaker wind are more common. Water temperatures are warm and the two bays give surfers more options. Beginners prefer the side facing the Mediterranean Sea, while pros practice kitesurfing on the other side in the Aegean Sea.
Winds are predictable and reliable. The direction is onshore on the wave side and offshore on the flat-water side, where wave height ranges from 0.5m to 2m, depending on the wind.
