You can directly contact the owners of the vessels for the ideal boat or simply allow a BednBlue travel expert to guide you with some suggestions.
You have plenty of options:
You can book and hire a sailboat or speedboat with a skipper, or without if you own a license, and enjoy a one-day cruise around these exotic islands. With a motorboat, you can easily reach Lichadonisia from Kavos harbor and enjoy a half-day adventure away from the crowds. If you book a catamaran, you can enjoy swimming and snorkeling in a remote bay or cove of your choice. You may also impress your guests on board and celebrate a wedding anniversary for a day to remember. Finally, you can hire a luxury yacht or sailboat at a decent price, making sure to include Lihadonisia in your week-long itinerary in Northern Greece.
The Lichades islands or Lihadonisia emerged from an earthquake in 426 BC and currently join the northern Evoikos Gulf with the Gulf of Malia. According to mythology, the islands took their name from Lichas who was handed the garment of Nessus from Deianeira to poison Heracles. Heracles held Lichas responsible for the tunic and hurled him into the sea, the shape of his body formed the Lichades islands! Although these islands were once inhabited, they are currently deserted and have turned into a popular tourist hotspot in recent years. Before your boat tours in Lichadonisia, you can visit one of the most famous thermal spring centers in central Greece, situated in the center of Kamena Vourla. Visitors can also taste delicious fish by the beautiful taverns within the coastal zone of Kamena Vourla. You can also visit the Holy Monastery that dates back to the 11th century AD or the historical monument of Thermopylae, featuring the statue of King Leonidas, a powerful figure in Greece.
You can rent a boat from Kamena Vourla or from the harbor of Kavos in Euboea and enjoy a day cruise to Lichadonisia. These exotic islands are mostly visited for their beautiful sandy beaches and are sometimes referred to as the “Seychelles of Greece’. They are only 15 minutes away by boat from Kamena Vourla right opposite Kavos beach. Since they are protected natural areas, hiring a skipper on board is highly recommended. With your catamaran or sailboat, you may spot seals and enjoy diving in crystal clear waters. From the 7 clusters of islands, Manolia is the largest one. Water sports are highly encouraged here, you may even anchor your yacht in a serene bay or explore the spectacular shipwreck in the west.
The Lichades islands are an ideal getaway spot away from Athens and the crowds. If you are seeking a spot to take a break from your trip in Northern Greece, look no further. Agios Konstantinos is a known port of the Sporades islands just a few km away from Kamena Vourla. You can always add the Lichades islands to your itinerary during your sailing cruise around the Sporades islands. Instead of catching the ferry to visit striking new destinations in Northern and Central Greece, you can have your own private sailboat to enjoy moments of relaxation with your family and friends. Volos, Pelion, Thessaloniki, and Kavala are also within easy reach and although they may not have dramatic beaches such as those seen in the Cyclades, they behold interesting sights, squares, and taverns that are ideal for one-day excursions.
