Getting back to your kayaks, you will continue kayaking past all the little beaches of the south-west coast before reaching Playa de Montaña Arena, one of the last virgin beaches of the island. Here you will have some free time to have a swim, lay on the sand, and rest or play beach tennis, frisbee, or snorkel. You will also be able to recover with a provided pic...
