What you'll do

Our off the beaten path snorkeling adventure tour is geared to satisfy and stimulate both the body and mind, in the beautiful surroundings of the Mykonian nature.
It is a land and water activity tour offering the balance of a 2km short hike in the beautiful Mykonian countryside, alongside swimming and snorkeling in crystal clear waters.
The tour takes place in the pristine natural beauty area of Panormos, away from any disturbing sounds of cars and loud music.
We start with a hike following an old donkey path which meanders over beautiful herb covered hills, with wild Mykonian Oregano (Throuby), wild lavender and Thyme.
It is a gentle walk, a total of 2km that requires a standard level of physical condition and is set in a wild and dramatic scenery, offering some of the most spectacular views to be found anywhere on the island.​ .
The trail leads us down to a hidden pristine beach, with crystal clear waters. In this beautiful and peaceful environment we'll enjoy our swim and guided snorkeling session and feast upon some fresh fruits and a snack, while listening to the incredible "sound of silence", (no cars, bikes or loud music, at all !!!) only the natural sounds of the waves, the wind and passing birds.

We are Nikos and Alex, two brothers born and raised in Mykonos. Our dad taught us Greek, our mum English and the island taught us to love and care for the natural environment. We have been providing outdoor activities in Mykonos over the past ten years. We received training in the UK in foundation safety and rescue techniques and first aid. We recently completed a seven months educational seminar with the University of Thessaly, successfully completing the course of animation of outdoor recreational activities. We both have Proficiency in English. Our passion is exploring our beautiful island both by land and water and sharing it with our guests.

Where you'll be

Our Snorkeling adventure will take place at a secret beach in the pristine area of Panormos. It is a completely hidden beach, even many locals don't know about its existence. The turquoise colours of the water and the clarity of the sea are unbelievable. The whole length of the beach is covered in fine golden sand. This is a magical landscape frozen in a time capsule, It is the place in Mykonos, that you really don't want to miss!

Nikos and his brother were amazing hosts. This experience exceeded my expectations. They showed us Greece from a locals perspective, gave us lots of advise and were the perfect guides through and through. I can’t recommend them enough. This experience was the highlight of my trip.

It’s a very wonderful snorkeling experience, with nature and culture immersion. Strong connections and feeling in esoteric surroundings both under and above the water, with hospitable Nikos open-hearted storytelling thru the journey, it’s just beautiful.

We were a small group of five and had a great time thanks Nikos and his brother Alexis. He was super well organized (from the meeting point to the drinks and snacks on the beach). The place was fantastic, difficult to find without the host AND sheltered from the wind. Nikos has great knowledge of Greece and during the hike, he stopped to explain to us some history, show us local herbs. We all thoroughly enjoyed our afternoon and would highly recommend them.

First of all, thank you Nikos for welcoming us. I contacted him via an Airbnb message to ask him if our level of English (we are French), even low, would not complicate the activity. Nikos knew he was very responsive and reassured us on all points. My partner and I loved the activity to the point that we didn't even want to come home. It was a very pleasant moment, Nikos had thought of everything (water + small snack) Do not hesitate and go for it Again a big thank you to you Nikos

Nikos created a lovely experience for a small group for snorkelling. He pointed out special things to look out for and gave us lots of knowledge about the island that we were unaware of. Lovely day with him and offered us a lift back to town which was very kind.

Nikos and his brother are very friendly and welcoming and we really enjoyed this experience more than most of our many experiences. Their genuine love of Mykonos comes with lots of nice touches from showing us herbs growing wild to diving to find interesting things for us to check out.
