We finally leave to reach the open sea where we can set sail, carried by the Meltemi wind and heading south to reach the fantastic island of Kytnos: unmissable stop in the bay of Fikiada. Divided in two parts by a thin strip of white sand, it will offer you an unforgettable landscape… here you can decide whether to take a swim in its transparent water or to go on an excursion to reach the little church of Saint Luke, perched on the hill and from where you can enjoy a breathtaking view!

The architecture of the magnificent chora, the village on the island, offers incredible views and represents all the beauty of the island…
After breakfast, we cast off and sail to the northeast in the direction of Athens, where we will make an unmissable stop at Cape Sunion to enjoy the view of the Temple of Poseidon, built on the peninsula in the farthest south of the Attica region. An unmissable tour before going back to the port…
