Yes you can hire quad bikes but I do not know the cost. All pools looking good.

Hi,
You can hire quad bikes right across from where you are staying. My mate from Bradford has used them a few times. I will whatsup him and ask what he paid last year.

Be back with an answer soon.

Hi Dave,

My man from Bradford has come back and he paid e35 a day last June. He said that was for the bigger and more powerful quad. The smaller ones are about e25.
Hope this helps. Cold and raining in Dundee so away to the golf.

kind regards
Tom

Just a reminder, make sure that your holiday insurance covers you for quad bikes. x

It won't be covered, but you can buy an extra personal injury travel insurance policy from JS Insurance to cover yourself (among other sporting activities), and if you leave off all the stuff you're already covered for in your existing travel insurance (lost bags, delayed flights, etc) it can be under a tenner for a week. And when you hire the bike, you're required to pay for the minimum 3rd party insurance you need for a motor vehicle on the island.

Oh and other thing. Boat hire? Is it possible? Any license required? Costs?
Just for a different day out we're thinking.

Hi Stokiedave, boat hire is pretty easy plenty of places to choose from, you don't need a licence think 30hp is generally the highest they go for the little motor boats, probably looking at roughly 50euro per day plus fuel. Not had one in Paleo yet but had them in Paxos and they're great fun.

Had one, and it was fun for a while, but with the wind up you couldn't go out beyond the bays.  And there you risk being blown onto shallow rocks before you can turn and power away - so always worth checking you can tilt the motor up in a hurry, and lock it back down again.  I think everyone chips the prop a bit their first time - certainly the vibration from the engine suggested as much - but try not to completely wreck it!

Should be a lot more enjoyable on a calm day, to go to the bays up or down the coast.  Though you need at least some rocks on the bottom if you want to drop anchor anywhere.  And always remember - don't all jump into the sea at the same time!  There's been some numpties who couldn't even climb back on board their pedalo after a swim, never mind a motor boat. Clap

How far do people get in these hire boats anyway, on a good day?  What's the furthest anyone's got with one of these things?  Down the coast around the end of Liapades and onto the beaches where the barbecue trips go?  Up the coast you have to go past the Angelokastro before there are any more beaches.  What about as far as Agios Georgios Bay?

(Interestingly, I've just seen on the satellite map that the first peninsula out of Liapades has a double-sided beach, just like the upper end of Agios Georgios Bay).

Granted it's a different island but we go from Lakka, all along the west coast, across to Anti Paxos then back along the east coast.
I should think a decent company will give good tuition and tell you how to 'sail' to the conditions.
