Kayaking La Costa Viola
Enjoy the spectacular Violet Coast of Calabria (famous for the fishing village of Scilla) from another point of view, on a private guided kayaking excursion. The dramatic coastline has the steepest descent into the water in the whole of the Mediterranean, with caves and steep cliffs plunging into the ‘purple’ ocean that the area is named after. Enjoy views of Calabria, Sicily, Etna volcano, the straits of Messina and the Aeolian Islands, and watch out for the traditional ‘passerella’ swordfishing boats.
The trip commences at the beach of Palmi Marinella and continues south, with the pace and distance fully catered to your abilities and sense of adventure! Travel the whole coast to Bagnara, or take your time stopping to swim, paddle through caves (some with bats!) and visit small beaches in the bays. Our guide speaks perfect English and Italian, with a great deal of knowledge of the area and stories of the past. Book the excursion for a full or half day (3 or 6 hours) and take your own pace.
