Rina Cave & Small Cyclades
Day Tour to Rina Cave & Small Cyclades
We set sail at 08:15. After a brief introduction and talk on safety rules, depending on the weather conditions and the will of the passengers, we will decide our route.
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 cool sea from the boat or from the cave’s rooftop and a short swim towards the cave. Upon entering the cave the silent underwater world explodes into color with corals and redfish. At the roof of the cave 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.
AVAILABLE TOURS ARE:
– Kalados bay
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.
– Iraklia or Schinoussa
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 small and picturesque 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.
– Koufonisia islands
The small island of Kato Koufonisi (our first stop after Rina cave), through the millennia, has been hollowed out by the tides into an intricate lattice of tunnels and caves filled with crystal clear waters of the Aegean Sea.
We then sail to Pano Koufonisi. Here you have the opportunity to enjoy a stately walk in the narrow streets while taking photos of the island or visit the largest fishing fleet in our area to capture some artistic snaps of the fishing trawlers. You may instead continue swimming in the caves or in the clear waters lapping the sandy beach in the front of the tavern and then make a point of enjoying the local traditional dishes.
Once we have taken our fill of this little gem of an island, we sail back and stop for another cool dip in Rina cave.
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.
