Kayaking in the area

We would love to rent kayaks and explore the coast for 2-3 hours (our youngest is 9, so we probably wouldn't go for much longer than that). It seems rentals are available at several beaches, including Tamariu, Platja de Castell, and Sant Feliu de Guixols. They all look lovely; can anyone comment on which would be preferable for rentals in terms scenery/ease of exploration/fewer crowds? Do we need to reserve rentals in advance?

Thanks!

Most beaches have kayak rentals. No need to book in advance and the best day will be one with the calmest sea. Pltja de Castell is good as there are a couple of bays around the corner to the left that are only accessible by boat, but others would be OK too.

You can rent in L'estartit and head out to the Illes Medes, moor on a buoy and take snorkels. The area is a Marine park, so lots of fish. People even paddle board out, if the conditions permit
