Travel to the mesmerising Blue Cave on this sea kayaking excursion from Mikros Gialos in Lefkada!

Lefkada is an idyllic island forming part of the Ionian group off the western coast of Greece. The island is renowned for its stunning natural beauty, with picturesque beaches, lush greenery and crystal-clear waters.

This sea kayaking excursion in Lefkada begins at the starting point at Mikros Gialos Beach, a beautiful beach situated in Rouda Bay on the island's southeastern coast. Upon arrival, you'll meet the certified instructor and receive your equipment (sea kayak, paddle, life vest, and dry bag). After a quick safety briefing and paddling instructions, the kayaking trip across Rouda Bay begins!

Rouda Bay is surrounded by lush green hills, with clear blue waters and a pebbly beach. As you paddle along Lefkada's scenic coastline, you'll pass hidden beaches, karst formations, and submerged aquamarine caves. Along the way, you'll make a few stops at remote beaches only accessible by the sea to admire Rouda Bay's stunning natural landscapes and swim in the lagoon-like waters. Snorkelling gear will also be provided for you to explore the unique seabed, home to colonies of big red starfish.

The sea kayaking trip in Rouda Bay then continues to Blue Cave, a hidden gem near the island's southern coast renowned for its magical azure waters. In this enchanting cave, sunlight filters through the water, creating a dazzling display of blue hues. Upon arrival at the cave's hidden entrance, you'll jump into the waters for a refreshing swim.

After visiting Blue Cave, the sea kayaking adventure continues to another hidden cave. This cave is often visited by small seals, as it offers them shelter during the summer months. You'll swim and snorkel in the clear waters of the Ionian Sea and soak up the hot Greek sun. Your sea kayaking tour in Lefkada comes to an end back at the starting point on Mikros Gialos Beach.

Enjoy an unforgettable paddling experience in the magnificent Rouda Bay on this sea kayaking excursion from Mikros Gialos to Blue Cave in Lefkada!

First time sea-kayaking for both of us, and it was a lovely experience ! Very easy to access with a short briefing in order to get to know your way around your kayak, and off we went.

Très belle journée sous un soleil de mai, réalisée en petit groupe de 3 personnes. On pagaie d'abord pendant un heure jusqu'à une petite plage tranquille, puis arrêt baignade et restauration. Puis on rentre tranquillement au-dessus de fonds bleu clair, en longeant les formations rocheuses et les grottes. Nouvel arrêt plage et baignade, puis retour.
