Once we have put on our life jackets and adjusted the footrests on our kayaks we will be ready to set off to the west towards the Runghetiello Grotto.  
For those who have never been in a kayak, there will be a short
introductory lesson on how to kayak and safety at sea.
The route will take us along
Amalfi’s finest beaches as well as under natural rock arches and into sea caves, giving us the opportunity to admire the old watch towers that dot the entire length of this coast.


We will pause at beaches reachable only by sea, and have time to go snorkeling or swimming in crystal-clear waters.


Just ahead of the starting point, once passed Duoglio and Santa Croce beaches, we will be able to admire and kayak under the "Arc of Lovers". This natural rock arch created millions of years ago by the erosion of the sea looks like two kissing elephants, and nowadays young couples use to get married on the top of it.
A little later we will pass near
Sophia Loren villa, paddling in front of the ancient fishermen village Conca Dei Marini and see the historic hotel “Il Saraceno”.


Once past the seaside of Conca dei Marini village, we will enter its western basin where we will find and visit the little Runghetiello Grotto.


Finally we will reach La Vite beach where we will disembark for a short visit on foot of this beautiful place reachable by the sea only, not crowded at all and perfect to have a peaceful break with a stunning view.
The water by this beach is crystal clear and so very good for snorkeling.


The return trip to Amalfi will give us a different but equally remarkable view of both sea and land.
