Kayak past secluded coves and inlets on this guided kayaking tour from Malaga to the Cliffs of Maro-Cerro Gordo. Look for local wildlife as you travel from La Herradura Beach to the Cave of the Virgin. Cool off with swim stops along the way.

Meet your guide in the city center of Malaga and hop aboard a comfortable air-conditioned coach. Relax on the drive to the tour supplier's facilities in La Herradura where you can store anything you wish to keep dry in the provided lockers.

Get set up with your high-quality kayaking tour and embark on your coastal adventure. Keep an eye out for marine life and mountain goats that like to visit the rocks by the sea. Arrive at Calaisa beach where you can spend time to admire its peculiar formation and marine life.

Ottimo il trasporto con pulmino privato fornito di aria condizionata. Una volta arrivati ci ha aspettato la nostra guida che ci ha accompagnato a posare i nostri oggetti personali e a prendere il kayak. Peccato per la comunicazione, infatti avevamo scelto la lingua inglese ma la guida ci ha confessato di non saperlo parlare bene, per cui tra mezze parole inglesi, italiane e spagnole alla fine ci siamo capiti. Il tour è stato pressoché autogestito poiché non ci sono state date grosse informazioni riguardo quello che ci circondava, bello il mare ed il paesaggio, ma ci aspettavamo un vero tour guidato! L'uscita in kayak dura circa 2 ore. Sicuramente c'è del potenziale ma bisogna migliorare soprattutto per il prezzo richiesto!
