The place
Paddling at the foot of the imposing 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 imagery and diversity of the indented coastline of Mani. We paddle in turquoise waters, discovering idyllic beaches sprouted between between the coastal fishing villages which are rich in history and tradition.

The activity
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 or 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 with local traditional delicacies.

Kardamyli and Stoupa two villages in the Mani nestled between the blue waters of the Messinian Gulf and the Taÿgetos Mountain creating one of the prettiest settings in the Peloponnese. Sea kayaking in Kardamyli and Stoupa is indeed one of our most popular trips offering an inch by inch exploration of the rich in imagery and diversity, lacy coastline of the Mani. We paddle in warm crystal-clear waters,exploring hidden coves and impressive rock
formations. We visit sea caves and discover idyllic beaches sprouted between the fishing villages of the region.

Our trip starts from Kardamyli’s old harbor. Before departure, we brief you on trip details, kayak paddling techniques and safety measures. Soon we will be exploring the coast at a relaxed paddling pace. Each little cove hides a special surprise such as hidden sea caves, rock gardens, cliffs with spectacular formation, hidden sandy
and pebble beaches. One of the top attractions of this trip is a visit to the Blue Cave.

A spectacular natural phenomenon where sunlight passing through a crack in the cave reflects on the sea floor an aqua marine color. A swim into the cave is a must do and a lifetime experience. Halfway we make a relaxing stop for swimming,snorkeling and a picnic Once the lunch stop is over we paddle back to the starting point to end an adventurous day spent in the coastline of the Mani.
