We had such a fabulous morning with Richard. He was very patient with us, given one of us had never kayaked before. He brought us to a beautiful cove where we were able to relax and swim. Water shoes were available to rent when we got there to save our runners, bags were able to be kept. We arrived early on the bus, we got out a few stops earlier - and got breakfast and water. We walked then for about 15 mins to SUP Kayak. Thankfully we did as there were no shops beside the meeting point. We walked to the beach after, again, google maps told us an 8 minute walk but it was def 15mins. There are no shops/restaurants on that walk so be warned! However, once you know all that information, I would absolutely recommend the day trip. I felt that it was an excellent day on the ocean with beautiful views, water and fun.

The kayak tour was very easy. We had few small waves. We often stopped because it was 37 degrees. I didn't feel the high temperature at the sea because of the sea wind. The guide was very nice and speaks very good English.

Excellent experience! The discovery of the place is splendid. With a dynamic and friendly team! I recommend 100/100

We loved our kayak tour! Water was beautiful, guide was friendly. One of the better parts of our visit!

Very pleasant walk to discover the blue coast with two very nice guides!.
