Admire Santorini’s beaches and beauty spots from the water on a scenic 2.5-hour sea kayaking tour. Settle into a comfortable kayak, get instructions, and paddle behind an experienced guide along the rugged south coast. Waft by steep cliffs and pretty beaches, and visit a cliff-backed cove for a picnic and to swim and snorkel. Take in epic views of the caldera and its islands, and gaze up at the clifftop Faros lighthouse on Santorini’s southern tip before your return. Choose from a morning or afternoon departure to suit your schedule.

We start from Mesa Pigadia located very near the settlement of Akrotiri and the lighthouse at the southeast end of the island. The beach is named black beach, and you can see the traditional cave houses. After a short briefing regarding the activity we head east to visit a bay with caves so-called "Indian bay" because of its shape of rocky surfaces. If the weather permits we continue to Faros offering incomparable views to the caldera, Aspronisi and Thirasia. We return back going west, stopping on the white beach to enjoy swimming and snorkeling in crystal clear waters. Then we see the beach Kambia (black pebbles), and the Red Beach (due to the volcanic soil too) before we return to our base where we will enjoy a meal (lunch or dinner) in the nearby tavern. Total route: 5 miles (depending on weather conditions). Total paddling time: about 2.30 hours.
