There is nothing better than a sunset kayaking adventure in the warm Croatian summer afternoon, don’t you think? We were waiting for a kayaking couple photo session like this, and if you follow us on Instagram, you know how we love to spend time outdoors. No matter if it is a hiking, running through the water in your clothes, rock climbing, jumping from the cliffs or kayaking photo session – if the company is good we are all in. And Croatian-German couple Martina & Matthias were just that!
Kayaking photo session in Croatia – a blend of best memories and amazing experience for adventurous couples
We are onto the mission to present Croatia as an amazing place for adventure elopements and photo sessions so we are constantly looking for an opportunity to work with adventurous couples in various beautiful sceneries of Croatia. That is why we were stoked to have these two in front of our cameras in one warm late August afternoon.
Martina and Matthias arrived in Croatia from Germany for their vacation and we immediately agreed to make an adventurous photo session with them. We met on the beach, they were ready with the swimwear on (their photoshoot clothes were safely packed in dry bags) and we were having our photo gear as well as kayaks with full equipment kindly provided by Life and Ventures. Sea kayaking is one amazing activity and combined with amazing landscape and beautiful sunset, it really is one hell of experience you will remember forever.

After 1.5 hours of paddling, (with some short stops along the way) we reached a secluded beach surrounded with rocks in the sea and cliffs above the sea level. This is one beautiful location accessible only by kayak, boat, or with some moderate hiking, and it is located near a small Dalmatian place called Živogošće (Makarska Riviera). There are many secluded beaches like this in Croatia and we bet each and everyone is a beautiful spot for an adventure photo session like this one.
Martina and Matthias changed to their comfortable clothes and we spend some time on the beach creating some epic shots of them on the rocks. Some of our favorites are the ones where they run through the shallow sea toward us. It felt so carefree and relaxed that we really can’t wait to do a similar adventure elopement or photo session again.

As the sun set down, we jumped back to the kayaks and paddled further towards the setting sun. The sea calmed completely, it felt like we are paddling through the oil. The colors of the sky were all shades of orange and yellow and it felt very peaceful. These kind of sunsets are something that can not be described with words, you just have to experience that.
We could not ask for a better afternoon for this sunset kayaking adventure photo session in Croatia! If you are considering eloping near the sea, with some adventurous activity included, Croatia is really a perfect place for that. We live on the Dalmatian seaside and we can guarantee you won’t regret your decision. Being locals, we explored almost every inch of the Dalmatia, including Makarska Riviera, islands Hvar, Brač, Pelješac as well as Dubrovnik area. That is why we have a long, long list of epic elopement locations near the sea in Croatia.
