Kayaking, together with some snorkeling, is one of the best ways to really explore Ikaria's magnificent coastline. Ikaria's beautiful and rugged coastline and many beaches and coves are of interest for kayakers of all levels. The south side of the island is preferable for novice-intermediate kayaking because it is protected from the prevailing north wind and waves. At Faros Beach there are seasonal kayak rentals. On calm days kayaking is also possible on the north side of the island around the beaches of Messakti, Livadi and Armenstis town where basic sit on top kayaks are sometimes available for rental.
Island Ikaria Activity Tours offers guided Kayaking Day Trips which feature single and tandem sit inside expedition sea kayaks, guide, all equipment, snorkeling gear, and picnic lunch on the beach. Their tours take you to beautiful remote beaches for kayaking, swimming, snorkeling and sightseeing.
