SANTORINI TOURS: An island like Santorini has plenty of scope for water sports, including kayaking, which you can either enjoy in the open waters of the east side of the island or in the calmer sea inside the Caldera, or volcano mouth, ringed by spectacular cliffs. There are water sports centres on both sides, such as at Perivolo beach or south around the Akrotiri. Kayaks can be rented by the hour or the day, and there is generally someone on hand to advise you on the safety procedures. Keep in mind that in choppy or rough seas the kayaks are all tied up. Kayaking around Santorini can be a rewarding experience, as it can take you to places that you can’t reach by foot or on an ordinary boat. You may even discover that tiny secluded beach that no-one until now knew about.
