Day Trips

  • North East Paros

    North East Paros

    The North East part of the island is interesting for sea kayaking because it forms a peninsula that widens at the tip and is suitable for a circumnavigation in a day trips time providing suitable wind conditions. In less then ideal wind conditions different route variations are available. On the eastern part we start on the turquoise waters of Filizi, pass by the very popular beach of Santa Maria and its smaller sibling Mikri Santa Maria. We leave the crowded waters of the bay and paddle across the rocky coastline where if we're lucky we might spot the pair of Peregrine Falcons that is found there. We arrive at the bay of Zevlogiani where remnants of an old shipyard give us clues of the islands long maritime tradition. Off the coast there is a number of isles that we can easily explore if we feel strong. These islets host significant numbers of Sea gulls, Cormorants and depending on the time of year Little Egrets. We continue to the beach of Platia ammos, a wide sandy beach that is looking to the North and thus gets affected by the prevailing summer Northern winds, the 'Meltemia'. Leaving the small island Ghaidouronisi behind we move along the impressive cliffs that guard the entrance to the big bay of Naousa. On our final paddling parts we experience the beauty of Lageri, a small bay with crystal clear turquoise waters and a fine sanded beach surrounded by sand dunes and salt tolerant vegetation. Our break spots may vary depending on our chosen route.

  • East Paros

    East Paros

    Starting at the edge of Tsoukalia beach we paddle South through an interesting rocky coastline, with scattered rocks, impressive cliffs and long slopes with mixed vegetation and the occasional grazing wild goat. After a shallow cave we arrive at the mouth of Molos bay, a big sheltered bay with a long beach engulfed in it. We usually opt to have our snack on an adjacent beach that its surrounding walls are made of silt and traditionally people cover themselves with it since it benefits the skin, a true nature's spa. After treating ourselves with this body delicacy we continue South through some very interesting rock gardens that offer an occasional little isolated beach within them. We choose the best of them to relax, swim and have lunch. If we feel strong we can extend the trip and visit the picturesque village of Piso Livadi.

    On this day trip we start from the quiet beach of Tripiti. Moving west we explore the rocky coast and play into rock gardens that we meet along the way. We come across big limestone cliffs that are surrounded by crystal clear blue waters and stop for a snack and swim in a natural 'pool', a tightly enclosed rocky cove that has served as a hideout for a famous war-lord during the Greek revolution of the year 1821. We resume paddling and head into the big roofless blue cave, an amazing place that is best visited with a sea kayak. Along some high rock cliffs, ideal for Deep Water Solo climbing we reach a couple of tranquil sandy beaches that will offer us our lunch spot.

  • South West Antiparos & the island of Despotiko

    South West Antiparos & the island of Despotiko

    This area is magnificent to paddle and more than one day-trip variations exist here. The Southern part of Antiparos is geologically very interesting with a volcanic origin. The coastline is composed of high cliffs, double entrance caves, arches and fjord like inlets. Rock types vary, offering lots of colors and forms to see. Beaches are few and consist mostly of pebbles. In the sea kayaks we are in the best 'transportation' means to witness all that spectacular scenery from the closest possible distance. In some day-trip variations we cross to Despotiko, a small island that had a very important place in the commerce of the ancient times (500 BC). Here archaeologists have found impressive ruins of temples and the excavation is still ongoing. Despotiko is also beautiful to kayak, with nicely sheltered rocky coves and sandy and pebbled beaches.

    North Antiparos – St Spiridon

    We start our paddle with the short crossing of the Paros-Antiparos strait and head to the Northern part of Antiparos. Here, the sea bottom is sandy and shallow (2m), the water is crystal clear and turquoise and with the sea kayaks we experience that in its maximum effect. We opt to take our first stop in one of the available sandy beaches. After a swim and a snack we continue North and pass through a narrow passage that forms between the two isles. Leaving an impressive coastline with three - colored rocks on our right hand we cross to the St Spiridon isles complex. These isles form an ideal rocky playground for sea kayaking, with arches and narrow passages waiting to be explored. For our lunch break we walk up to the chapel and enjoy it with a panoramic view. On our paddle back we take a shorter and different way, one that goes through the other side of the isles.
