1. From Agia Galini/Matala: Islands Boat Cruise with Swim Stops
The delightful journey commences in the scenic village of Agia Galini. A boat sets sail into the Libyan Sea, making its way towards the two petite islands situated approximately 12 kilometers south of Agia Galini, also known as "Paximadia." The locals have endearingly nicknamed them the "little elephant" due to their resemblance to a swimming elephant when viewed from a distance and at a particular angle. Although the islands do not have any human settlements, many visitors to the southern coast are unaware that, apart from cliffs and barren land, they also boast magnificent beaches that tempt you to take a dip and go snorkeling in the crystal-clear waters. If you're fortunate enough, you might catch sight of dolphins or the famous turtle, Karetta-Karetta, during the voyage. Once the boat reaches a charming cove for swimming, and you've refreshed yourself in the chilly water, the crew will prepare a delicious lunch for you. Hop aboard and feel the refreshing breeze brush against your face as you sail!
