If you want to be part of an exciting experience, paddling around an island with turquoise beaches, then the island of Diaporos is definitely one of the places for you. It is located in the bay of Vourvourou, Sithonia, next to the coast.

Program:

 


Meeting in front of Vasil Levski Stadium at 00:30 and departure from Sofia at 01:00.

 

Arrival around 07:30 in Ormos Panagias. We stop for coffee and breakfast and buy some fish from the local fish market, then head to Rea Camping, which is located across the street from Fr. Diaporos. We unload our equipment and kayaks and after a short break we will do a briefing and head to the beaches of the island. Diaporos. Before sunset we return to the campsite.

 

On the first day we will make the most of the time to learn and perfect our paddling techniques.

 

In the evening we will have a free program, go back to the campsite, fire up the barbecue, prepare dinner and have fun.
The rowing distance for the day is 6 km.

Difficulty level 1 out of 4.

 


After breakfast and coffee, and making sandwiches for the day, we put the kayaks on the water and head to Fr. Diaporos. This time we will take a tour of the island, and on our breaks we will enjoy the sandy beaches and swim in the crystal clear sea waters.

 

There are four breaks planned for the day, the first is on the southeast beach of Diaporos and the second is on Myrsini Beach on the east coast, also called White Beach or Hawaii because of the white sand and deep blue color of the water. Here the break will be longer and we will have lunch. Please note that there are no restaurants or tavernas on the island, so stock up on water and food for the day. Our next stop is the Blue Lagoon, the most iconic spot in the northeast of Diaporos, but also the most visited spot on the island for its emerald waters. Therefore, our stay here will be shorter. We continue our tour, our last stop will be on a sandy beach opposite the mainland where we will wait for the sunset.

 

For the evening we again plan a free program in the pleasant atmosphere of the campsite, again we will have dinner at the campsite.
The paddle that day is about 14 km with four breaks.

Difficulty level 2 out of 4.

 


This day we will explore the coast north of the campsite.

 

The first break is on Fr. Peristeri. A thin strip of sand separates the water on either end of the island and forms two completely different pools as underwater worlds. Only lack of desire can stop you from exploring both with snorkel and goggles.

 

Our next break will be for lunch at a beach taverna in Ormos Panagias, after lunch we head to the iconic Talgo Beach where we will visit the one-room beach bar. The beach parties, led οn by a DJ, will start around 3pm. No one will feel like leaving, but an hour before sunset we will head to the campsite. Along the way, we'll stop for a break and photos on a small rock island that has a chapel built into the water.
In the evening we will visit Nikiti in an organized van and have dinner at a local tavern.
The paddle that day is about 14 км with four breaks.

Difficulty level 2 out of 4.
