Sardine Fiesta & Beach BBQ’s
Taking place across three evenings of the festival week, the sardine fiesta will take place on the same beach as Cariocas, with the day’s catch brought directly to the shore where it goes straight from the fishing boats, onto the barbecue. Grilled by chefs from the village, the sardines will be served up with fresh salads, tomatoes and olives, local cheeses, fresh homemade bread along with local beers and sparkling wines.
Sardine Fiesta
Water Sports – Group Fishing, Sun-Set kayaking, Snorkelling
Taking advantage of proximity to the beach and calm blue waters, there will be a range of water based activities to undertake during the festival week. ‘Sunset kayaking‘, gently paddling into setting sun, with the dulcet tones of the festival in the background is a must. Local fishermen await you, to take out small private fishing groups twice a day to catch your dinner fresh out of the mediterranean.
Sunset Kayaking
Yoga On The Beach
FitBeats presents Om2theBeat, a unique experience which gives us the opportunity to enjoy music whilst performing the physical and mediative practice of Hatha Yoga. Experienced instructors will take you through a series of Hatha yoga poses for 60 min on the beach before the festival kicks off each day, with a bespoke music programme.

HISTORY & HERITAGE OF CARIOCAS
After falling in love with the location, The Papa family built their first house in Schinos bay in 1984 to the left of the bay, with their second home constructed on the foundations of an old grocery shop on the beach in 1998. On the 25th March 1998, work began on Caricoas, it took three and a half months of intensive design and carpenting work to construct to the 90% open air club.
Over the years, the club has attracted an array of iconic artists including Frankie Knuckles, Joe Claussel, David Morales, Ron Trent, Matteo & Matos, Onsulade, and family member Rickardo Da Force to name a few. In addition, the club attracts locals who bring their families to the venue for traditional Greek parties, whilst party goers from all across Greece and beyond visit the venue for both the resident and guest DJ nights, listening to music play out on the custom made sound system.
‘Be prepared to expect the unexpected. Cariocas dance floor is the soul of the house, and the house is the dance floors soul.’
