Lovely Crete has a unique and spectacular coastline. Paddle the clear, blue Mediterranean waters; explore sea caves, tunnels and arches; relax on deserted beaches; explore uninhabited islands. 

Starting point of trip is the village of Kaloi Limenes.

This superb kayaking trip depending the experience of the group and weather wise, will be either towards cape Lithino & Matala village (west) or towards the beautiful fishing village of Lentas (east) with plenty of stops for swimming & snorkeling.

The trip is suitable for all levels; if the group has limited or no experience we will paddle towards the eastern side as that is less exposed to winds and waves.

The west side of the coast is more dramatic with high cliffs (up to 400+ meters), remote beaches and wonderful caves & rock arches.

The paddling distance varies from 12 km up to 20 km.

A must trip if the group skills is close to 4* (based on British Canoeing).

Lentas is located 75 km south of Heraklion, in south Crete.

The name of Lentas possibly derives from the Greek word lion (in Greek leontas). It refers to the lion shaped cape that makes the small protected bay of Lentas. This cape is documented in medieval maps as Cape Liontas.

Lentas belongs to an area where the climate consists an exception in accordance to the climate on the island of Crete which is Mediterranean. Lentas falls in the North African climatic zone and thus enjoys significantly more sunny days and high temperatures during the summer.
