Sunset Cruise: Explore Ammouliani island by night

Either you are looking for a little romance or just the most relaxing way to end the day, our thematic sunset cruise "Explore Ammouliani" is something you should not miss. Join on this unique afternoon cruise and enjoy a romantic sunset at sea with a glass of wine and music, combined with a two hours stop on the island of Ammouliani, the only inhabited island of Halkidiki.

The tour begins from the port of Ouranoupolis at 20:00. We head towards the northern side of Ammouliani and after about 15 minutes of sailing we stop to admire the spectacular sunset.

After sunset, we set sail to the main port of Ammouliani where we stay for two hours. Here you have free time to enjoy a walk to the small streets of the traditional, idyllic, fishing village of the island. In addition you can choose a traditional Greek tavern to enjoy fresh fish and various local dishes, or just to relax in one of the harbor’s charming waterfront coffee shops.

At 23:00 we return back to Ouranoupolis.

Excursion for swimming to the island of Ammouliani

A brief but very joyful escape for swimming, relaxing and having fun in the sun, to one of the most famous and amazing places on the island of Ammouliani; the enchanting beach "Alykes".

If you are one of those who are not satisfied only by enjoying the beach in front of your hotel when you go on holidays but you’re looking for a new summer experience that’s a little bit out of the way and a little bit out of the ordinary, try this cruise and you will be surely rewarded.

We start at 15:30 from Ouranoupolis and head toward to this beautiful beach at the southwest side of Ammouliani. Here we have two hours free time to enjoy the best this stunning place has to offer, including swimming, snorkeling, relaxing under the sun and a gorgeous beach.

Alykes is the most famous beach on the island. Its white sand, turquoise water and lovely temperature make it worthy every second of the visit here.

At 17:45 we're leaving the island and return back to Ouranoupolis to disembark at 18:00.
