Active Sport Club Watersports
Founded in 2017 by windsurfer Simos Nalbandoglou, Active sport Club watersports was a small windsurf-shack with just a few boards and sails. Today we have grown into a full-on water sports center with more than 4 years of experience in doing what we do!

Where are we?
Angelochori is a traditional fishing village 30 km from the center of the city of Thessaloniki ( SKG ) in the municipal unit of Michaniona and is an oasis for relaxing in crystal clear and refreshing waters with an exquisite view of the city of Thessaloniki and the imposing Mt Olympos massif.
Due to the extraordinary local thermal wind phenomenon, Angelochori has become a famous windsurfing & Kitesurf destination. But it has managed to retain its unspoiled charm with chilled taverna, cafe, and bar lining the picturesque harbor.
Active sports club is just a 5-minute walk along the beach road from the village and a half-hour transfer from Macedonia airport.
After going in for a swim, a visit to the Lighthouse with the spectacular sunset and the Fortifications is an unforgettable experience. You must also not omit to visit the lagoon with the rare birds and the salt marshes. It is accessible by car and public transport. There are hotels at a close distance in the surrounding region for accommodation. Natural resources of incomparable beauty, picturesque small taverns, crystal clear waters, dreamy sunsets, and the warm hospitality of the people turn guests into fanatic fans of the region.
The Angelochori Lagoon or Megalo Emvolo natural wetlands have an area of 377 hectares has vegetation corresponding to Epanomi but the habitats are fewer because of increased salinity due to its proximity to the salt marshes and the smaller area of the wetlands. It primarily consists of annual plants while the plant species that predominate mainly belong to the Chenopodiaceae, Gramineae, and Compositae families.
178 different species of birds have been recorded out of which 48 are protected species (flamingo –cormorant). However, in relation to the rest of the fauna, there are many species of mammals, amphibians, and reptiles living here.
