There are not many places in Santorini for enjoying a quiet and peaceful sunset. So how about sitting in your kayak and seeing the sun slowly disappearing into the sea while listening to the sound of the waves ! Chills guaranteed !
On this sunset kayak and snorkel adventure in Santorini, you will visit black, white and red beaches, enter magnificent sea caves, swim and snorkel. Your tour comes with a round-trip transfer to and from your lodging point and an expert guide who will capture and share panoramic views of the sunset and setting for you as you visit and pass places like Akrotiri Lighthouse, Red Beach and Kampia Beach. Your excursion also covers a savory dinner in a traditional tavern, your snorkeling and sea kayaking equipment, making it the ideal adventure for thrill-seekers and foodies alike.
Start off your sea adventure at the black beach of Mesa Pigadia and paddle off into the sunset on the coastline as you pass by the iconic White Beach and Red Beach. Each beach’s name is synonymous with the color of its rocks, where you’ll find white cliffs on White Beach and red volcanic rocks of Red Beach. Continue your tour to Kampia Beach, where you’ll enjoy a 45min break. Go snorkeling to discover the marine life in the crystalline waters of the Aegean Sea, including sea urchin, starfish and even sea turtles if you’re lucky. Then, head to a family-run traditional Greek taverna where you’ll dine on a delicious snack.
Head back in your kayak and continue your adventure west as you approach Black Mountain and the Akrotiri Lighthouse–a 19th-century lighthouse that overlooks the Aegean Sea and serves as a guiding light for sea vessels. This is where you will get to experience one of the most epic sunsets of your life. Conclude your tour as you paddle back to Mesa Pigadia to enjoy a delicious dinner dining in a traditional taverna before heading back on a comfortable scenic ride to your lodging destination.
