Description of Castro kayak trip

On the way we will show you hidden caves and ravines, all to be explored! After putting on the life jackets and entering our kayaks, we will be ready to sail north along the splendid Castro’s coast. Right here is the probably most suggestive cave of all: the Zinzulusa Cave .
On the rocky coast between Castro and Santa Cesarea Terme there are a number of other caves accessible only by sea. First of all, for its historical value, is the Romanelli Cave. But we will also see others with our kayaks: the Blue Cave , suggestive for the color of the water very intense in its only marine cavity, the Witches Cave, whose rocky shape seems to draw female hands with long nails and from which derives its name and the Aigor Cave .
Finally we will land on the beautiful  Porto Miggiano beach where we will stop for a swim and have a packed lunch. We will leave north to visit the coast and the Sulfurous Caves of Santa Cesarea Terme . Finally, the return to Castro will follow.

Starting time


Zinzulusa cave
