Activity description

Paddle to paradise on this sea kayaking excursion to Meganisi Island!

Home to some of the most breathtaking beaches in Greece, travel across the Ionian strait on this island-hopping excursion to the exclusive Peloponnese archipelago, heading from Lefkada to Meganisi.  Enjoy the lagoon-like waters of the Meditteranean as you cruise past exclusive beach resorts and charming fishing villages – exploring the quaint seaside towns with your local guide.

This activity is run and operated from Nidri on Lefkada Island and travels to Meganisi. Travelling 10 nautical miles from the popular port on the eastern side of the island, this itinerary also passes Valaoritis and stops briefly at Scorpios, the famous island of the Onassis family.

Meet your guide at the activity base in Nidri for this full-day sea kayaking excursion to Meganisi Island. A hands-on adventure that travels to the island’s northern shoreline - renowned for its lagoon-like bays and beaches. After a short safety briefing and paddle practise, follow your guide at a casual pace to the evergreen islet of Valaoritis – named after the summer home that can be seen from the shore. Travelling a short distance to Scorpius island – the private island of the Onassis family, enjoying the beautiful beach on foot. The last part of the day sees you reach Meganissi’s Roka Beach – leaving the kayaks on the sand and hiking to the traditional village of Spartochori. The afternoon is spent swimming and relaxing on the beach – enjoying a traditional Mediterranean meal, before kayaking back to Nidri.

Running during the summer season from May to October, this tour operates using single-seater open deck sea kayaks. Suitable for anyone with previous paddling experience, double kayaks can be supplied on request.
