Full description
Explore 2 magnificent spots of Halkidiki in a day. Set cruise for the turquoise waters of Blue Lagoon beach, at the narrow pass between the islands of Diaporos and Agios Isidoros. Savor a barbecue on board. Then, enjoy the long stretch of soft golden sand at Alykes beach. Start at 11:00 AM from the port of Ouranoupolis. Head to the first stop of your cruise, Blue Lagoon, located just opposite Vourvourou in Sithonia. During the 1-hour trip to Sithonia, enjoy a coffee while sailing on the calm waters and feeling the morning sea breeze. Keep your camera ready for some spectacular photos of dolphins which you're likely to find swimming in front of the bow. Drop anchor to enjoy the clear sandy seabed and turquoise waters in the Blue Lagoon. Marvel at a combination of a white sea bottom and shallow depth that gives a glacier blue color to the water. Swim, snorkel, and relax for 2 hours surrounded by exquisite natural beauty. Explore the hidden coves of this exotic paradise. Return to the boat for a barbecue with salad, bread, and wine or refreshments. If you'd like vegan options, contact the tour operator a day before the cruise. As you tuck into lunch, the captain will raise the anchor and set sail to the second stop, Alykes, the only inhabited island of Halkidiki. Located on the southwest coast of the island with a view of the Sithonia peninsula, Alykes offers deep golden sands with clean seawaters. The crescent-shaped sandy bay with shallow waters is ideal for kids. Upon arrival to the island, spend about 1.5 hours. Make the most of this time by swimming in the calm waters or relaxing under the sun in one of the sunbeds and parasols of the well-organized beach. Visit the beach bar for a refreshing cocktail or ice cream. At 04:45 PM, bid farewell to this traditional Greek island. After 15 minutes of sailing, arrive back at the port of Ouranoupolis to disembark around 05:00 PM.

    Absolutely recommend this trip. An amazing experience all tougher. The food is amazing and enough to prevent hunger before a swim. All the staff is extremely friendly and nice. We were lucky enough to see a good few dolphins as well and make sure to bring bread for the seagulls. The water is turquoise is colour and deep enough to jump into. Amazing experience overall!
