Description - What to expect

Voidokilia beach, located on Messinia's western side, is a world-famous beach for its unique setting and its distinct "omega" shape. It is considered to be among the most beautiful beaches worldwide. Visitors come here to swim into its calm turquoise waters, relax on the fine white sand, admire the dunes, hike to Nestor's cave and the ruins of Navarino Castle and enjoy bird watching at Yialova Lagoon.

Kardamyli is located in a unique spot in the district of Mani. The town sits between the gulf of Messinia and the imposing presence of the highest peaks of Mount Taygetos. At the southern end of the town, the road takes you down into the beach of Foneas with white pebbles and turquoise waters. There is a large, characteristic rock that divides the beach in two and gives its distinctive shape.

The activity
Stand Up Paddle, known as SUP, is a unique opportunity to enjoy a super fun water activity with your family, beloved ones, or friends at a beautiful beach. In the beginning, you learn the basic paddling techniques, how to turn, stop, and stand up, until you grow confident on your board. Then you are ready to start your tour and explore the coast.

You will be paddling next to coves with glittering waters and dive in with snorkeling equipment. You may be able to catch a few waves and surf them in case of a wavy day. You will have plenty of time to practice, swim and sunbathe or just relax under the sun.
