Crete Inn-to-Inn Sea Kayaking - Overview

Download Itinerary

Discover the unspoiled coast of Southern Crete as we paddle on the crystal blue waters of the Libyan Sea, visit secluded beaches, hike the dramatic Samaria Gorge and explore the ruins of Venetian Castles and Minoan palaces. At night we enjoy the star-filled skies, dine on delicious fresh local cuisine at seaside tavernas, and share in the warm hospitality of intimate family-owned inns.

Itinerary at a Glance:

  • Meet at the Heraklion Airport and head to Knossos, the mysterious ancient Minoan palace
  • Take a scenic drive across Crete to the beach town of Matala where we’ll enjoy welcome dinner at an authentic Greek taverna
  • Paddle to the Red Beach and Kommos Beach then back to Matala for cliff-jumping into the bay and a sunset hike
  • Explore Samaria Gorge National Park
  • Kayak from Roumeli along the coastline to Agios Pavlos for a cappuccino stop, then continue along the coastline to Marmara Beach
  • Paddle to the water-access-only town of Loutro where we spend two nights
  • Paddle along the coast to the Venetian-era fortress at Frangokastello en route to Plakias
  • Heading out from Plakias, an optional side trip up the inland freshwater creek provides a glimpse of river turtles, local birds, and dragonflies
  • Celebrate with a final dinner overlooking the harbour at Agia Galini
