Inclusive kayaking

Kayaking is one of the most accessible water sports, and the kayaks by Perception are so simple to use anyone can give it a go - kids, grandparents, and complete beginners. You can relax on the water and enjoy an afternoon to yourself, join a guided safari or maybe even complete a British Canoe Union (BCU) course. It's up to you.

Every beachclub has sit-on-top kayaks for one or two people, we also have sea kayaks at Retreat Beachclub. The kayaks are sitting on the shoreline waiting for you. With the sit-on-top kayaks, there's no need to book and no need to join a tuition session; just grab a buoyancy aid and paddle and off you go. 


Kayak safari

If you’re itching to get out and about, this is a great way to explore and keep you cool, paddling to nearby beaches for a snorkel or swim. Head down to the water sports beach, sign up with the beach crew, grab a kayak, buoyancy aid and paddle and head out on safari with one of the team.


If it's your first time in a kayak, that's just fine, no previous experience is needed. Go solo or double up with a friend, you could even pick up some top tips along the way from your safari leader. 


Kayak tuition

If you want to learn the best way forward with your kayaking and paddling technique, join one of our British Canoe Union (BCU) courses. The courses are included in your holiday and are exclusive to the Retreat Beachclub.


BCU one star will guide you through the basics including starter strokes. Perfect for absolute beginners. Or if you fancy taking your kayaking to the next level, join the two star course, you’ll be learning rescue techniques and some pretty cool paddle skills.

Best for kayaking

Kayaking is available at all our beachclubs, but if you’re looking for the best, then we recommend your book a trip to the Retreat or Vounaki Beachclubs in Greece, Baia dei Mori Beachclub in Sardinia or Alana Beachclub in Croatia.

For the most variety, Retreat Beachclub is your best bet. With flat water, caves, off shore islands and BCU courses it's the place to go if you love to paddle. It's also great for a range of other water sports including water skiing, wakeboarding and stand up paddle boarding.
