Pelion Secrets (Sea Kayaking), the sea activities centre in Pelion, Greece. We are a social cooperative offering genuine hospitality, quality equipment and an amazing place to paddle, relax & have fun. We look forward to your visit to Pelion, the mountain of Centaurs, the summer residence of the 12 Gods. Today it has become one of the best places to visit all year round with no mass tourism.
We took the 2 hour trip, had a very good briefing by Giorgos, very friendly in perfect English, to the point on safety and procedures and also suitable for children.All equipment provided and very well maintained. But the most exciting part came then, along the beautiful shoreline of Pelion, along hidden Beaches and a stop at a beach for a well deserved rest and an apple from Zagora...this together with the tongue in cheek humor of Giorgos made it a day to remember. Furthermore there are some good taverna's and Beaches nearby. Also a parking next to the kayaking is available.

This looks like an amazing place on good sunny days, when you can also enjoy sea kayaking. Our day was not one of those, but we still enjoyed the most beautiful views and even some tasty moments at one of the restaurants. Nearby, is a short and steep climb to a wonderful observation point over the two bays of Damouchari, and the rest of the Beaches.

It's in the mount of Pelion for a nice escapade to the Centaur's path in a natural beauty of small rivers, and little bridge, to visit the path of mythologie and the legendary centaurs lived in the mount Pelion; The centaur's were mysterious creatures, half man and half horse..and had a surnatural craft. The most known was Chiron, he was the professor of
Achile of the legend of Homer; The centaur's were everywhere in mount Pelion, facit why
the wild and nice nature on this path.

We came across this local sightseeing activity as in order to reach our accommodation in Ano Gatzea (mainland Greece) we had to drive over the railway line for a short distance! The journey starts in Lechonia and stops at Ano Gatzea where we picked it up and finishes at Milies which is a beautiful town in the Pelion Penninsular. There are only about 4 carriages and if you haven't booked a seat or boarded at the start, only standing room is available outside of the carriages. It isn't a problem and quite safe as the train just chugs along. It takes about 40 minutes to reach Millies from Ano Gatzea along a winding track with glorious views of the coastline below. The whole trip costs about €12.00, our part of the journey cost €6.00. I would not advise a return trip. Most take a one way trip either way and taxi back. We decided to walk back! It is a recognised walk and is basically all alongside the railway line. Well.......! It took us 2.5 hours to get back to base, all the time walking in about 37 d Celsius! That was madness in retrospect! However we had filled up our water bottles and although the walk is not hard, it is basically straight, it is at times walking on the line or alongside so there are lots of gravel issues etc. The walk was 9 kms in the heat of the day! As the saying goes "mad dogs and Englishmen"!

This orthodox church is a historical monument where Anthimos Gazis raised the flag of revolution in 1821 and is located at the center of Milies on a paved square . There is a traditional restaurant - Greek tavern at the surrounding with a great view to the Pagasitikos gulf. The visitor will be impressed at first sight, when realizing that the church has no windows or bell tower. The first entrance depicts frescoes of the Zodiac Cycle while the main body is full of scenes of the Bible. Don't miss visiting the interior of the church - so cosy an so unique! If possible, you can ask to have a guidance to the church and talk to the priest.

We were unfortunate not to have fine weather for our stay in Makrinitsa, but explored the winding lanes nonetheless. One of them led us to this wonderful cafe. Each of the small rooms is a museum into itself, with many paintings and works of art displayed for sale. Sat and enjoyed recorded Greek music and shared a mouth-watering piece of chocolate torte, accompanied by cappuccino. Just perfect.

Fascinating Synagogue, definitely worthwhile to visit if you want to learn about the history of Jews in Crete. There is a person working there, doing great work and is more than happy to explain the history of the Synagogue and the Jews in Crete (which sadly ended during the Nazi occupation). Make sure to go upstairs to read more about the history. Free entry although there is a donation box.

Just another beach in the Aegean sea. Nothing special, rocky ground, a bit windy usually. There are hundreds of more beautiful Beaches around Greece. This one is privileged with the fame of "Mama Mia", part of which was shot there. If you are curious, just stay for a few hours and leave. Nothing special to eat or do. Locals are not polite.
