We always say that a Mark Warner holiday needs to at least involve some time out in the water to get you fully in holiday mode. Arguably one of the easiest ways to do it is by grabbing a paddle and taking it easy in a kayak.
Phokaia is possibly one of the best spots in the entire Mediterranean to do some kayaking on holiday and with it included at the resort, you’ve no excuse to learn the basics and get out there to make a splash.
Down at the waterfront is always a hub of activity as everyone is just dying to get in the water. If you’re staying with us for just a week, you’ll want to make sure it’s chock full of as many activities as possible, and kayaking is one of the most popular; in large part due to how easy it is to learn and how quickly you can master it. If you’re not inclined to try sailing or water skiing and like to take things at your own pace, kayaking is for you.
We have fully qualified instructors who will show you how to use and navigate yourself in a kayak, walk you through all the safety tips you should know and then come down to the water with you to show how to get in and out or the kayak before you go on your own adventure.
Kayaking is free for guests at the resort, so you don’t have to worry about spending extra on equipment when you come down to the beach. The best time of day to kayak is in the morning as it’s when the water is calmest, and the sun isn’t too intense.
If you do fancy going further afield and exploring more the coastline, you can try the Kayak Safari and take in the unique views looking in towards the coastline.
(Please note that this does incur a charge and can only be booked when you’re here at the resort.)
Safety is always a priority for us, and for any little ones looking to kayak, you might already have them booked in for lessons.
Children booked into our Mini, Junior, Kidz and Indy Clubs will have kayaking sessions included in their programme. Instructors will teach them how to kayak step by step in a controlled environment.
It’s always seen as one of the most talked about activities between kids when here on holiday.
