Our passion: the sea, going on adventures and having a good time.

Our goal: To be the best part of your Holiday!

Located on a quiet semi-secluded beach

Paddle Paradise is located in Stegna, an unspoiled fishing village tucked away at the foot of a rocky ravine. The views from the top of the winding road down into the town are breathtaking and set the scene for what is to come. Don’t expect to find crowded beaches in front of all-inclusive hotels. Rather, Stegna has a few traditional tavernes mostly specializing in locally caught fresh seafood and is a favorite place for locals looking for a quiet place to swim and relax. A real taste of genuine Greek island life practically unchanged for centuries. Our center is located on a quiet semi-secluded beach in front of taverna “Limnioni” where the friendly welcoming owners will be delighted to provide a post-paddling snack or coffee.

Paddle Paradise since 2015

A few years ago, our friend and former colleague “Manu” decided to embark on a circumnavigation of Rhodes by SUP. Manu was amazed by the breathtaking beauty of the East-coast with it’s hidden beaches and secret coves of crystal clear waters. He returned with tales of his adventures and the seed of an idea that stand up paddling this stretch of coastline ought to be an experience shared with other adventurers.. and thus Paddle Paradise was born.
