Paddling at the foot of the imposing mount Taygetos, we discover the wild beauty of a place that was never conquered. Sea Kayaks give us the opportunity to explore inch by inch the rich in imagery and diversity indented coastline of the Mani. We paddle in warm turquoise waters, exploring hidden coves and impressive rock formations. We visit sea caves and discover idyllic beaches sprouted between the rich in history and tradition coastal fishing villages of the region.
Our trip starts from the old harbor of Kardamyli, the place we meet. At the beginning of the activity we attend a brief but comprehensive introduction to the basics of sea kayaking. We get our kayaks and begin to enjoy an excursion where each little cove hides a special surprise such as hidden caves, cliffs with spectacular formations and unique beaches with sand or pebbles such as the well hidden beach of Foneas with the white pebbles and the sandy beach of Delfinia. Weather and time permitting we head to Stoupa and the beach of Kalogria with its fine golden sand and turquoise waters. The beach of Kalogria is known as the beach of Zorbas, as this was the place where writer Nikos Kazantzakis met his hero of his book Zorba the Greek. Halfway we make a relaxing stop for swimming, snorkeling and a picnic a picnic with freshly baked bread organic, garden-grown fruits and vegetables, homemade olive oil, and cheese.
