Kefalonia Cruises – Zante Cruise by Captain Vangelis
Zante Cruise. You will have the opportunity to swim at the “ShipWreck” Beach. An impressive landscape, with crystal blue waters caressing this beautiful beach that embraces the semi covered remains of a ship. Visit Blue Caves, to enjoy the vivid colours of Zante coastline and lunch and swim at the port of Alykes.
Cape Skinari with the homonymous light house, visible from Kefalonia at night. This is the closest point with Kefalonia (katelios 8 nM distance)
The most beautiful beach of Zakynthos and one of the five or six most photographed beaches of all Greece. Accessible only by sea, it gives you the idea of hugeness and perfection. It consists of millions of small pebbles with the blue shades of the sea as far as the eye can see, it results unique in its gender and the relict looks like if it was made by an artist.
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.
The Blue Caves consist of particular geologic formations giving life to a succession of caves along the North-West coast of the island; they start soon after Agios Nikolaos to end near Skinari Cap. 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.
A small picturesque village with a sandy beach, water sports and restaurants for whoever wants to eat. It is very peculiar for the presence of salterns that supply salt to the entire island and from where the town derives its name (Alykes in Greek literally means saltern). The extension of Alykes is the town of Alykanas; it is difficult to understand where one is finishing and the other beginning especially if you walk along the sandy beach that unites them.
