One of Naxos’ most beautiful sea caves is at Rina bay, where you will get the chance for a cool swim under a rock dome. We provide you with free equipment for snorkeling, plus waterproof camera and waterproof flashlights. Our adventure starts with a dive into the sea and a short swim towards the cave. Upon entering the cave the silent underwater world explodes into color with corals and red fish. At the roof of the caves you can admire the stalactites lining the dome which bats, sparrows and doves use as their hideout. Climb up the high cave entrance and jump down into the sea or take photos to share with your friends and family.
We then sail on to Kalados bay, where a pristine secluded beach awaits just for you to imprint your footsteps on the long sandy beach or swim in the clear blue waters.
Later on, you can relax in the hospitality of Dimitris and his family as they prepare your lunch or barbeque at their tavern while you take in the superb view with a cool drink of your choice. Please note that food and drinks at the local taverns are not included in the price.
A great alternative, weather permitting, is to set sail for the Small Cyclades, Iraklia or Schinoussa, where for a couple of hours you can choose to explore the village, take photos, visit the rolling hills, enjoy the famous fava or visit the summertime free fava festival with lively local music. Also, if you are lucky, you may enjoy the donkey race at the tiny capital of Schinoussa.
If Iraklia is your choice instead, you have opted for a soothing experience on the most laid back island. Iraklia offers marked hiking trails and the most intriguing of all Cycladic caves, the cave of St. John.
A visit to St. John’s cave also offers the opportunity for a swim at the nearby beach where you can snorkel around the rocky outcrops, where sea life likes to hide and later on enjoy your lunch at the beachfront tavern.
By late afternoon we set sail back to Naxos and time allowing, we can stop for a swim at a sheltered bay before arriving at the capital by 18:00.
