Ayia Thekla is named after a 1st century saint and is a beautiful quiet village that is becoming more popular year on year. There is a picturesque beach with a small island about a hundred yards offshore and calm shallow waters for the children to play in. The beach is mainly frequented by locals which means you can enjoy the space offered. However, if you require a busier area, take a few minutes drive to Makronissos Beach. It is a magnificent place for people of all age groups.
Whether you are a water sports fan or are simply seeking a nice, quiet place where you and your family can enjoy the sun, Makronissos Beach offers all the conveniences. There are also many activities that you can enjoy at the beach such as swimming, snorkeling, playing beach ball or very simply having fun. You can grab a ride on a Jet ski, take a trip paragliding or go crazy on the banana boat rides. Couple this with the hot Sun and warm water we guarantee that you will have a memorable time.
Makronissos Watersports is found on the right hand side of the beach (when facing the sea). Their facilities are for your convenience. They have all the necessary equipment to bring that smile to your face when you are looking for that adrenalin rush.
Ayia Thekla is now also known for being the home of probably the largest water park in Europe, Waterworld, which is just a mile east of the village. With a clearly defined Greek Mythology theme running through all its slides and pools, Waterworld is hugely popular with both locals and tourists during the summer season. Ayia Thekla boasts a small number of bars and restaurants.
