What you'll do

Gallipoli is an important coastal center of Salento, better known as the "Pearl of the Ionian". The Old Town, that is, its historic center is surrounded by waters and along the coasts you can admire the ancient walls and ancient towers that formed a real fortress. To the north-west of the citadel there is a beautiful bay with clear waters called the Purità beach.

In Canoe or Kayak you can bathe.
It is not necessary to have already had experience these boats are very stable, large and safe. Canoe or Kayak navigation presents no technical difficulties. It is important to know that paddling is a much less tiring exercise than walking. In addition, participants with a better physical shape will be combined with those who are more tired or less trained in order to better balance the group. Those who already have experience of kayaking can request to have a more sporty single kayak (advise in time). The excursion is not recommended for those with severe back problems.
Other things to note
Navigation is subject to weather and sea conditions and can be canceled or suspended in the event of adverse conditions.
