Our appointment will be set at the beach of Despotis (behind the port). Our kayak boats will have already been transported there  and our team  will be expecting you.

We start paddling from Despotis beach and we immediately face the imposing rocks and the coast of Marmaritsa. The scenery starts to change as gray and white steep rocks meet the shore. These rocks are practically the remains of ancient marble quarries that once were here.

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 other part of it vanishes into the sea.

We paddle in a relaxed manner while we observe the majestic rocks, explore caves and stop at small beaches formed between the rocks.

Sinaksi beach is the closest to Samothraki point of Thrace. Therefore, at ancient times this was the place where pilgrims set off to visit the Sanctuary of the Great Gods in Paleopoli of Samothraki.
