Cycles & Sea Kayaking in Shima

Cycles & Sea Kayaking in Shima

Come experience the beauty of Shima both on land and on sea as you tour the inviting shoreline by road bike, and the stunning waters by kayak!

We went out closer to the rocks separating the waters of the cove from the Pacific Ocean.  The instructor reminded us not to get too close to the rocks as your kayak can become caught up on the rocks causing you to capsize.  Part of me wanted to slip between the rocks and head out to open sea, but fortunately common sense kept me under control.

This beach is definitely on my “visit again” list!  I look forward to coming here in the summer when I can get in the water and swim.  Still, it’s a great place to visit any time of the year. We had an amazing time out on the water.  Lots of fun and taking beautiful photos was a snap!
