Kayak Sardinia Costa Smeralda

We launch our kayaks from two beautiful places right at the beginning of the real ”Costa Smeralda”, name often wrongly used to indicate any place of the north east.


Depending on the season or day of the week we can chose Rena bianca or Cala razza di juncu, both places are close to San Pantaleo and Portisco.
