Here is the breakdown of the Playa de Maro - Nerja kayak activity
We’ll meet on Maro Beach, where you will be introduced to your guide. Then we’ll safely store our personal items, put on our life jackets, and grab our paddles to start kayaking!
Before starting the route, we will fill you in on everything you ought to know about the trip – we will teach you how to properly paddle and give you some important safety information.
Beginning of the route
We will depart from Maro beach, a small picturesque bohemian town in Nerja. From there we will start our VIP route that lasts approximately 2:30h, 6km of kayaking, where we will see the beautiful cliffs that lie between Maro and Burriana.
We will kayak over turquoise colored waters, admiring the views of the cliffs, passing by a 40mt waterfall**. On the route we will also encounter a fresh water spring that you can directly drink from, we will see beaches, enter into a cave, and listen to the interesting and fun stories of the guide, who due to our small group size can answer any questions you may have.
Once we finish we’ll head to the van where we’ll have a muesli and drinks, and of course, a cold beer to reflect on our experience. We’ll recuperate our energy and call it a day, which you will have forever memorialized in the photos and videos that we’ll send you afterwards.
Also, if you came by bus, there is the option to get picked up at the Nerja bus station, or if you came with us, we’ll take you back to the meeting point in Nerja at the end of the route.
**Attention: For reasons of a period without rain, the main waterfall may be without water.
