Day 1 :

We set off from Kissamos and drive on scenic coastal roads for half an hour. We get to a pebbly beach where we leave land and launch for our adventure. We have a few options for the location, depending on the winds. The West coast is long and full of surprises.

The Kayak
We paddle along the rocky coastline. We round a cape to discover remote beaches. Then we navigate through shallow rocks, all while admiring the rugged landscape. We might visit a sea cave with a hidden entrance, marvel at the sheer cliffs, explore lagoons and natural salt lakes.

The sea
We take advantage of the sit-on-tops and jump in the blue element. We don our masks and snorkels and we enter by the steep drops under the cliffs, or we can find a shallow spot with turquoise water among the maze of rocks. Or we can explore the seagrass meadows by the shore.

The landing
We spot the next shiny-shingled-shore and land, we get dry and we share a snack on the beach, before we drive back.
