to believe that we live in a material world.

Sea kayak

This activity, except from physical exercise, offers the opportunity for exploration of the unique natural beauty of the municipality. It also offers the opportunity for exercise and relaxation, both physically and mentally, in shallow or deeper waters. The inaccessible hidden caves throughout the coastline of Agios Nikolaos can be visited by a sea kayak. The bay of Mirabello offers the advantage of choosing a waterway, with either calm or wavy waters. You can visit places, difficult to access in any other way, and do some downwind paddling. This is a unique experience, with the lake of Agios Nikolaos as a meeting point.

Sea Kayaking offers you the opportunity to access and explore remote places of pristine natural beauty within Agios Nikolaos area

A beach is not only a sweep of sand, but shells of sea creatures, the sea glass, the incongruous objects washed up by the ocean.
