Following lunch, continue sailing to the east coast of Ithaca, enjoying views of the magnificent Vathy Bay as well as other charming beaches.

What people are saying about Kioni

We had a great long day visiting three different places to stop and swim. This meant we spent a long time moving and there is very little room to sit on the deck. Also, I felt the food offered was very basic and it wouldn't have taken too much skill to make something a little more appetising. The drinks were a little slow to be offered as well. However, it didn't spoil what was a lovely day but you did ask.

Excellent trip, pity for the traffic of boats in the coves around Ithaca, and for the snorkel that I could not use, cmq everything else perfect, friendly and helpful staff.

Great crew, lovely swimming spots and a really enjoyable trip. Excellent value for money
