Discover the beauty of the Aegean
A day trip to explore neighboring islands VS a Patmos Island tour!
Take a private boat trip to nearby islets or beaches. Get a good dose of peace and serenity.
Using a private, 10 meter long motorboat, enjoy a private cruise to neighboring islands or beaches, accompanied by an experienced skipper. There is a variety of recommended routes in order to admire landscapes of natural beauty such as unspoiled beaches, rocky islets, turquoise-colored beaches, outstanding crystal clear seascapes and numerous traditional, untouched Greek villages.
You may choose from the following recommended routes:
- Makronisi - Aspronisi - Tiganakia - Marathoi - Arkoi
- Plati gialo (Leipsoi) - Katsadia - Makronisi
- Plati gialo (Leipsoi) - Tiganakia or Marathi & Arkoi - Agrielousa
- Tiganakia - Marathoi - Arkoi - Agrielousa
- Island tour of Patmos
Arki: Arki (ancient Arkitis) is a small island north of Leipsoi. The very few islanders live of fishing. When you arrive, you have a feeling of traveling back in time. Far from any form of tourism, the island offers total peace. There is only a single village with a few houses, a cafeteria where you can also buy beach necessities or clothing and two restaurants, which we highly recommend for lunch, offering fresh fish and seafood. Opposite Arki, you notice the island of Marathi on a fine sandy beach. You may reach it in about 25 minutes, starting from Grikos.
Marathi: There's something about Marathi Island that seems to inspire visitors, a feeling absorbed through the skin just like the rays of the sun. Often, there seems to be a problem in dragging people away from this small, secluded island. It is indeed tiny: a curved sheltered bay with smaller coves to navigate. The pier divides the bay into two sandy sides with crystal clear waters, suitable for swimming. There are two restaurants which will most definitely satisfy your appetite, offering seafood and fresh fish. You may reach it in about 20 minutes, starting from Grikos.
Tiganakia: Perhaps the most popular spot for swimming to those familiar with the area. It is actually an area in the Aegean, like a swimming pool, offered for long dives and swimming. The color of the sea: turquoise blue and the seabed, of course, sandy. The water is so clear you can see the seabed from your boat! There is no surface to get off and walk around but you can simply indulge in never-ending dives. You may reach it in about 25 minutes, starting from Grikos.
Additional information:- A one-day power boat cruise usually takes place from 10:00am to 18:00. - The boat carries approximately up to ten (10) people (including crew). - The duration of the journey varies, depending on weather conditions (wind intensity, wind direction etc).
Your boat, your schedule!
You may also create a route of your own instead of choosing among the recommended ones. There are a number of alternative options, such as a tour to Tragonisi (the island seen opposite the hotel), a visit to Kalikatsou (the huge rock standing like a sculpture on the sea) or an island tour of Patmos, discovering the coastline of the Island.
Wanna be left alone?
Choose the alternative of being transferred and dropped off in one of the nearby beaches so as to enjoy additional privacy. The pick-up time in order to return is scheduled upon request in coordination with the driver of the powerboat. Some indicative beaches are: Psili Ammos (5 - 10 minutes), Monastiri (10 - 15 minutes), Prsasovouno (5 - 10 minutes) and Kampanaria (5 - 10 minutes). Estimated time may differ due to different weather conditions.
