Tholos Spot ID
Reliability: rarely breaks
Best: Swell N | Wind SSW
Sea Temperature Today is: 15.8 °C
Tholos in Crete is a fairly exposed beach break. Summer offers the best conditions for surfing. Works best in offshore winds from the south southwest with some shelter here from west winds. Handles onshore winds better than most spots The short fetch makes for windswells rather than groundswells and the ideal wave direction is from the north. The beach breaks offer lefts and rights. Good surf at all stages of the tide. An uncrowded break, even when it is working. Rocks are a hazard.
