Holidays are about getting away from it all. And this morning cruise does just that. Cooling off in the waters of Samos's south coast, you'll also visit the remote island of Samiopoula – home to just five inhabitants.
Sailing out of Pythagorios' pretty port, you'll know you're on holiday when you feel the sun on your face and a warm sea breeze wash over you. Gliding through the Mycale strait that separates Samos from Turkey, you'll pass secluded beaches and rocky coves. Whilst being served fresh fruit and refreshments by the crew, you may even be lucky enough to spot a dolphin or two.
Then, you'll relax and top up your tan until we drop anchor at Samiopoula. Home to more goats than people, it's the definition of remote. Spend time here exploring the islands unspoiled landscape, its lone church, or enjoying a dip in the Aegean. The water here is calm and clear so expect to see plenty of fish. And cruising back to shore at a leisurely pace, you'll have time to catch a few more rays on deck.
