This is the easier to access trip if you are staying in eastern Crete. It is located close to Agios Nikolaos and not far from Elounda as well and is much less exposed to winds and waves.
Depending the weather & group experience we will head either north west to the town of Agios Nikolaos or south east to the small fishing village of Pachia Ammos. In either case we can have lunch in a taverna or you are welcome to pack your lunch.
Of course there will be enough stops for swimming and snorkelling. The paddling distance is around 17-18km in either direction. Distance can be shorten or extended based on group needs.

Starts near Istron
Paddling distance: 17km

If you don't want to have lunch in the taverna be sure you pack your lunch. Other than that you will need 1.5lt of water (ideally in small bottles),sun glasses, hat, sunscreen, swimsuit,lycra shirt or any tshirt ideally with UV protection. You will also need shoes that you do not mind getting soaked as you will get your feet wet. Ideally a light neoprene shoe will work great. Is is not required to wear shoes but they will help as the majority of the beaches are with small rocks.
