You will have the opportunity to watch closely the famous "ShipWreck" Beach. An impressive landscape, with crystal blue waters caressing this beautiful beach that embraces the semi covered remains of a ship. Visit the Blue Caves, to enjoy the vivid colours of Zante coastline and lunch and swim at the port of Alykes!
Our cruise starts from Skala. In about 40 minutes we reach cape Skinari with the homonymous light house, visible from Kefalonia at night. This is the closest point with Kefalonia (katelios 8 nM distance). From cape Skinari until the famous shipwreck the coastline is rocky, steep, and truly impressive..
As we reach the famous shipwreck, weather permitting, we will steer the ship to the sand, you will disembark, and have a chance to get a good look, take photos etc. You will stay on the beach for about 30 minutes.
Shipwreck is known worldwide and is almost synonymous with Zante. An impressive landscape, with crystal blue waters caressing this beautiful beach that embraces the semi covered remains of a ship and behind it a breathtaking escarpment, complete this magic scene.
About half way there you can see a castled wall. About 1100 years ago St. Andrews monastery was built there and the only thing remaining is this castled wall that protected it from the pirates. Just down the way, a strange cave with stalactites. The depth is about 70m. Large waves, especially during winter occur in this area and very often we can see seals and sea-lions and also near the light house.
These caves were carved by the wild waves within the centuries that whip the irregular coastlines. They get their colour from the underwater seabed. The biggest cave has a length of 35m. Thousands of tourists visit it daily with small or large ships; yachts all drop by to admire this scenery. The crystal blue waters invite you to dive in and enjoy! Whoever likes can dive off the boat; the water is deep or you can use the waterslide.
Our last stop is at Alykes, a small picturesque village with a sandy beach, water sports and restaurants for whoever wants to eat. We stay there for about 2 hours.
