What people are saying about Karteros Beach

Aris (my kayak instructor) sent me a message that morning to confirm exact location and list of things to bring - sunscreen, water, etc. I am staying in Malia, taxi was the easiest option for me. I took a lovely evening stroll back afterwards. I took the 3pm slot. The activity was perfect for me, I was super lucky to have the lovely Aris to myself, I have some experience kayaking, so I was suitable challenged, taking some opportunities to paddle into waves. It was fun. We chatted, Aris shared local information about the area and a story or two. In windy, quieter moments, he kept an eye on me, checking I was OK regularly. A safe, professional, friendly guide. The cherry on top, was the picnic on the beach after our kayaking, local delicacies, very tasty and chilled. I enjoyed every moment, highly recommend. Perfect afternoon.

Amazing open ocean experience with amazing kayaks, not to mention learning some Greek myths about the area. Don’t worry if you get tired of rowing there’s an alternative ;) Aris is a super friendly, charismatic and helpful guide and not to mention the food and wine given. The caves were beautiful and the experience was amazing. I would recommend it fully!

A highlight of our vacation. A great tour followed by cooling off in the water and strengthening yourself with Greek snacks and wine served. What made this trip so special? The guide who took his time and clearly enjoys what he is doing. Just great!

We really enjoyed the tour. There were two of us with our tour guide Aris. The cave was definitely a highlight. The picnic at the end was also very nice. Definitely a recommended tour!

Aris, our guide was very personable and friendly. The tour was a lot of fun. At the end we sat together comfortably on the beach. Gladly again!
