Proti Island Cruises, Marathopoli, Messinia

Proti is a beautiful little island directly across from Marathopoli, Messenia. Just a mile away from the coast, this place is arid and uninhabited yet a very interesting spot since ancient times.

Swimming @ Vourlia Beach

With daily departures from the Port of Marathopoli, our boat “Lampros”, which comfortably seats up to 45 passengers, will get you to gorgeous Vourlia Cove within only 10 minutes!

We disembark at Vourlia, the one and only sandy beach of Proti Island, for swimming in crystal clear turquoise waters (or trekking for the adventurers among you!) for more than one and a half hours. There you can have a look at the shipwreck dating back to World War II and pretty undersea landscapes, including Mediterranean fish species and colourful starfish. Don’t forget your masks! Otherwise we’ll gladly lend you one.

After we leave the beach, you will enjoy a site-seeing tour of the front of the island, where you can take a dip or two at various stunning locations such as the Cave of Seals or Grammeno (“where it is written”), where seamen of old have carved inscriptions into the beautiful rock face. We then return to the Port of Marathopoli.
