Cruises

 We organize one or two day cruises in the area of Paliki. There are beautiful sights and places to visit around the area: Katavothres a rare natural phenomenon, where seawater gets into crannies, following an underground route, reaches Melissani Cave, Sami and Agia Efimia, 15 km away. The lighthouse of Saint Theodore, the famous sandy beaches Makris and Platis Gialos,  in Lassi, an area where all the big luxurious resorts are constructed. Make a long dip in astonishing beaches of Xi, mega Lakos, so unique and extremely impressive for its reddish color of  sand and for its clayey composition where you may enjoy a natural spa session. Sunbath and practice your swimming skills and snorkeling in Platia ammos, a 600 meters long and 30 meters  wide pebbles beach, surrounded by huge cliffs creating a fascinating backdrop. A few years ago it was solely accessible by boat. Today around 280 steps were built down the cliff coast reaching the beautiful natural beach. Relax on our yacht, feel the sea breeze and taste a local brunch of Greek salad, olives, goat cheese, wood oven baked traditional bread, ouzo and Greek local wine. Near Kefalonia lies the deserted island Vardianoi with a unique beach of grey sand and seaweeds serving as natural sunbeds. There is a lighthouse, a church and a dazzling rocky beach on the north side of the island, well worth walking around. The Breathtaking Monastery of Kipouria first built in the 17th century lies on the west side of the island, on a cliff where you can also admire the unique sunset, fading into the deep blue waters of the Ionian. A Majestic scenery which harmoniously combines the untrodden mountain with the inaccessible sea. A few miles back stands the lighthouse of gero gombos.
