Porto Heli in the Peloponnese is one of the most luxurious destinations in Greece.

During your sea kayaking tour in Porto Heli, you'll explore secret sandy inlets as you follow the olive groves from the bustling port to the uninhabited island of Hinitsa where you will stop for a delicious lunch, a refreshing swim/snorkel, and relaxation time. Re-energized after your break, you'll return to the original departure point in Kosta, taking the time to see caves and caverns at low tide on the way back.
