As we move away from Kagkeles beach and leave the port of Agios Haralambos behind, we arrive at the beach of Marmaritsa. The scenery starts changing while grey and white rocks hulk above the sea. These rocks are practically the remains of ancient quarries that once were there.

The area is of high geological interest since it is part of the Maronia –Makri shift. The remaining segment of the shift  is 5 metres high while the rest of it vanishes into the sea.

The majestic beauty of the dry  and of low vegetation landscape along with the clear, deep waters set our kayak tour scenery at this part of the route. The small, isolated beaches formed between the rocks offer you moments of tranquility and relaxation.

Whenever the weather is clear, Samothraki can be seen peaking above the sea giving you the impression that you can reach it with just a little more paddling.
