* A traveler said: "Totally satisfied with our kayaking experience. 3 hours is just the right amount of time to experience the water and the coast.

The day will commence at Valsaline Beach, where you’ll get to know your guide and familiarize yourself with the day’s program. Start rowing toward the famous Tarzan cliff — a place only accessible by boat. After around 45 minutes of paddling, spend 30 minutes relaxing and enjoying the scenery. The adventurous can try out diving and the extra-adventurous can even jump off the cliff into the water. Then, head to the famous Pula’s cave, entering one at a time. Leave the kayaks in the cave while you tour the area. With some more free time, simply enjoy your natural surroundings, dive into the blue waters, or jump from a 10 or 12-meter cliff. Your local guide will happily answer any remaining questions, and of course, teach, explain, and show you the most important things when it comes to cliff-jumping and diving. The tour will end back at Valsaline Beach. Look through and take home some of the photos and videos taken throughout the day.

With the Adriatic shimmering around it, Piran has a rich cultural heritage that is mostly influenced by its time within the Venetian Republic. Its medieval centre is adorned with cobbled streets, colourful houses, cafes & restaurants. It might be tiny, but it has a lot to offer, from Tartini main square, city walls, Church of St. George, and a lovely promenade. Without a doubt, one of the best things to do in Piran is to see a town from above, and the best way to do it is by visiting Piran’s City Walls. Situated on the hill behind the town centre, climb up onto the walls and you’ll be rewarded with an epic panoramic view. Be sure to bring your camera!
