Agia Napa: Sea Caves Guided Kayaking

5. Agia Napa: Sea Caves Guided Kayaking

If we have time and explorers want to we can also kayak to Cape Greko Sea Caves and back (3.5 / 2 mi). Limnara beach is the start of the kayaking trip and the basic route goes west until Glyky Nero beach (and then back to Limnara beach). The coastline is rocky, with many formations, interrupted by two natural sandy beaches (one is too narrow and shallow to go into on a kayak) and one man-made. The big highlights of the trip are the collection of Sea Caves just east of the beaches of Pantahou and Glyky Nero in Agia Napa. There are more than five sea caves, but most are either very narrow to enter or their height above sea level is limited. Usually we enter two of them. The experience is superb. We enter teh first cave from one entrance and leave from the other. The second cave that we enter has only a single (wider) entrance and the colours there are very beautiful, especially as it has a white sand bottom throughout and light blue water colours. Lovers' Bridge natural rocky arch is another big highlight of the trip. The arch is quite wide for a few kayaks to go under at the same The kayaking trip ends back at Limnara beach.

What people are saying about Ayia Napa

It was really fun. The crew was great. Nice trip on the water. Get to know beautiful corners. You could optionally book a meal on site for just €10 and it was delicious. The swim stops allowed you to jump off the deck at the first stop. And at the second stop you could see a lot of fish while snorkeling and several turtles swam right next to us. The water was totally clear.

Fantastic trip even though it rained a bit, 2 fantastic swimming stops, at the second stop in the blue lagoon we swam with 5 sea turtles, lettuce was thrown from the boat and they lay and swam around us for an hour and a quarter during the stop lasted, This trip can be highly recommended Thanks for a good day Christoffer
