Dramatic landscapes, crystal waters and local history

THE FORGOTTEN ISLANDS CRUISE 09:00 - 18:00

1. Cave of Papanikolis

The boat approaching the cave on Meganisi

First stop of the day - the second largest sea cave in Greece, the setting of the fascinating tale of the WWII submarine Papanikolis.   Hear the story and take photographs.

2. Formikula islands

The Christina boat in the crystal waters at Formikula islands

A group of tiny islands with stunning, crystal waters. The perfect place for our first swim of the day.  Snorkeling equipment is provided for all guests.

3. Kastos village

The Christina entering the harbour of Kastos

The only village on the island of Kastos; with just a few residents, this is like a step back in time .  Enjoy a drink in one of the harbourside cafes, or walk up to the old windmill with beautiful views.

4. Limni beach

The Christina boat at the beach of Limni on Kastos island

The perfect setting for lunch.  You'll have a chance to swim and snorkel at this amazing beach while lunch is prepared and served on board. Enjoy the local flavours and Greek hospitality, accompanied by Lefkadan wine and soft drinks (included) 

5. Asprogiali beach

The Christina boat at Asprogiali beach, Kalamos island

With the forest-covered mountains of Kalamos as a dramatic backdrop, this beach is the highlight of the cruise for many of our guests.   Fine, white sand under the turquoise waters makes visiting here a truly magical experience.

6. Skorpios

The Christina boat at the Onassis island of Skorpios

One of the most famous private islands on the planet, Skorpios was once the playground of the Onassis family, and is now used by the Russian billionaire, Dmitry Rybolovlev. Hear the fascinating story of the 2 families and enjoy a swim on one of the island’s beaches. 

7. Madouri & the Prince's Islands

The Christina boat cruising past Madouri

We cruise past the islands of Sparti, Skorpidi and Madouri, the jewels scattered across the sea off the east coast of Lefkada, as we head back to the port of Nidri.
