The beach of Ponti village offers to its visitors coarse sand with shallow waters.
Ponti is well known as the village of windsurfers, because thousands of surfers arrive during summer months to the the village. The special wind (called Eric) which occurs in the large bay, provides excellent conditions for windsurfers, especially in the afternoons. The surfers are away from the main beach, so it is also good for swimming, and enjoy the sun. The seabed is filled with coarse sand, and the emerald coloured sea is shallow here. It makes this place ideal for smaller children, but the families are a little further away, closer to Vasiliki village.

Behind the beach there are some facilities, where you can rent equipments for surfing. The beach is connected to the beach of Vasiliki, which is located on the eastern side of the bay.
