Overview

Spend a day blissfully lost at sea in this cruise around Skiathos Island.

Sail past the sparkling white-pebbled beach and dramatic sea-worn rocks of Lalaria and tour an abandoned village whose ruins allude to its former prominence.

Have lunch in the shadow of towering mountain peaks in a small mainland village seldom seen by outsiders.

Snorkel in the pure blue waters of the Aegean Sea and recline on the soft sands of a deserted island.

Itinerary

There is no hotel pick-up. You’ll be accompanied by an English-speaking escort who will point out all the must-see sites from the boat.

Board a boat in Skiathos harbor and set out on the lovely Aegean Sea, past the white-pebbled beach of Lalaria, with its blue caves and famous Trypia Petra, a rock that has been eroded by the sea into the shape of an archway. Drop into the bay for a swim before sailing further round the coast to Kastro.

Kastro was the most significant town in Skiathos for more than 600 years, though it is now just a shadow of its medieval self. Walk past crumbling fortifications and tour the evocative remains of ancient churches, admiring the fading frescoes still clinging to the walls.

Continue along the northwest coastline to a part of the mainland that is rarely glimpsed by tourists. Dock at the base of Mount Pelion and enjoy lunch at a local taverna in Katigiorgis, where the strong flavors and subtle accents of Greek cuisine will come alive for you.

Climb back on board for light refreshments and seize the opportunity to snorkel in the crystal waters. If time allows, close the tour with a stop on the small, abandoned island of Tsougria, a pine-covered paradise with a wonderfully secluded beach.
