Stand-Up Paddleboarding (SUP) in Western Crete

Zorbas (Stavros) Tour - Akrotiri

Our tour starts from the west beach and then we head to the circular bay, which isfully protected by winds blowing in the region. The lagoon-like bay has marvelous white sand and shallow turquoise waters. The contrast of the wild mountain with the peaceful beach in the foreground makes Stavros a unique place for paddling and swimming. One characteristic feature of the area is the very steep camel-shaped mountain rising opposite the harbor of Stavros. The mountain is famous from the film “Zorba the Greek”, where Anthony Quinn danced the famous Sirtaki Dance in 1964

Marathi Bay Tour - Akrotiri

We start from Loutraki bay and we paddle north towards Marathi Bay. A fairly easy and enjoyable route combining two bays with beautiful surroundings. 500 meters opposite Marathi, there is the small island Marathi or PaliaSouda (Paleosouda), paddling over there will improve your skills with no struggle! Marathi hosts two beautiful beaches with fine sand and shallow calm waters. They are very well protected from the winds, as they look to the south and have nice view to Drapanos Cape and the White Mountains. The beaches are separated by a small pier, which serves as a harbor. It is well organized with all necessary amenities close by.
