Kalantos beach is located 43 km from Naxos’ Town at the south of the island. You will follow the route: Chora-Galanado-Chalki-Filoti-Kalantos. It is an amazing sandy beach with crystal-clear shallow water and offers protection from the annual northerly summer winds (meltemia). It holds an alternative small marina with the nearest village, Filoti, being 24 km away. Kalantos is highly appreciated for it’s simplicity and wild beauty and is ideal for those who love quiet and preserved places.
Overview of the trip
We start our trip from Kalantos leaving behind the gold sand, heading East to Rina’s cave. We paddle in a relaxed pace exploring the interesting geology of the area, the pure Cycladic scenery and the turquoise water. Along the way we stop off at small beaches ideal for swimming, snorkeling and cliff jumping away from the crowds, and enjoy the personalized attention of the guide on a small-group tour.
Duration of Kalantos Sea Kayak Day Trip is approximately five hours, two and a half hours of total paddling and another two and a half hours on the beaches, swimming, snorkeling and having snacks and coffee.
Later in the evening, full of nice pictures we return to our starting point for a last swim!
