Kayaking in Pahia

2013-08-11 11.37.23

Pahia is a town situated in the area that is known as “The Bay of Islands.” The beach area was gorgeous. After several days of rain, we were finally blessed with some sunshine! There are several islands in the bay.

We rented a two-person kayak for an hour. Since neither of us have much experience kayaking, we got the number of the guy renting us the kayak in case we got blown out too far and needed to be picked up. Fortunately, we didn’t need it. We tried to kayak to one small island. Since we felt that it was easy, we decided to kayak to the larger island that was further away instead. But as we tried to go to that island, we kept getting blasted by gusts of wind. We got close to the larger island and then decided to turn around and go back to the first island. Again, we kept getting turned around by the wind. Once we got close to the first island again, we were worried that our hour was almost up, so we paddled back to shore. Paddling back to shore was the most difficult because we were then going completely against the wind. We made it though. I definitely want to go kayaking again on a day that is not so windy.
