Explore the magical rugged coastline of Katakolo bay!
A fascinating journey into the crystal azure waters of Katakolo peninsula exploring private beaches, rocky islets and ancient sunken cities, paddling in a relax and leisure way. If we are lucky, we might encounter sea turtles, dolphins or even Mediterranean monk seals.
Discover by snorkeling the ancient port of Olympia that's lying at the bottom of the sea and destroyed by the massive earthquakes of 5th c BC that deserted Olympia forever.
We sail away just outside of the port, paddling towards some rocky islets with a gull colony.
We pass the cape following the coast till our first stop for a dive into a private tiny beach with turquoise waters.
We continue paddling till the next stop in a small uninhabited island just outside of the bay of Saint Andrew, where was the ancient port of Olympia, today sunken after the devastating earthquakes that destroyed the sanctuary in the past.
The place is ideal for swimming and snorkelling.
We close our journey with a delicious picnic lunch on the beach across with some characteristic Greek snacks.
In case that very strong wind makes the above itinerary difficult, we can arrange a kayak tour in a furthest scenery lagoon with hot springs and a spa on the small island in the centre of the lake.
Caution: All the participants must sign a waiver before the start of the excursion!
