First Stop: Hot Springs for mudbath
The famous ‘Hot Springs’ will be you first stop. Enjoy 30 minutes of swimming with your family in the sulphurous springs of the volcano. The warm dark waters of the ‘Hot Springs’ are high in iron and manganese content, two elements that are believed to have beneficial attributes against rheumatisms, arthritis and other diseases. A mud bath in the ‘Hot Springs’ will fill you and your kids with amazing ‘volcanic’ energy! This last part of Santorini Ammoudi family Sailing day tour will really fascinate all of you.
After your family mudbath, you will sail past Aspronissi, Ancient lighthouse, Akrotiri and Indian rock.
Aspronissi (‘White Island’ in Greek), could be described as a miniature of Santorini. It is a private island of unique beauty, characterized by most of its visitors as a ‘heaven on earth’!
Your next stop of your Premium semi-private Santorini Family Sailing Day Tour is Akrotiri – a beautiful, amphitheatrically built village which used to be a Minoan settlement. Besides its amazing views and picturesque streets it is the most important archaeological site of Santorini Island. While sailing close to Akrotiri, admire its ancient Light House, one of the oldest lighthouses in Greece.
Second stop: White Beach
The ‘White Beach’ will be your next destination, where you will stop for approximately 60 minutes. Although it is called “white”, this beach is covered with beautiful black pebbles glittering under the hot sun. The imposing white cliffs surrounding the beach create a lunar atmosphere that will simply amaze you while its crystal clear waters will refresh your body and senses.
After swimming and snorkeling, your visit at the ‘White Beach’ will finish with a delicious barbeque on board. You will have the opportunity to savour various delicacies while sailing inside the Caldera, very close to Santorini’s volcano. Your kids will be fascinated by watching hot fumes being released in many points of the volcano, a phenomenon that creates the impression that its crater is still active!
Third Stop: Red Beach
The ‘Red Beach’ is arguably one of the most famous beaches of the island. Its majestic landscape with black sand and high red lava cliffs dropping right to the shore, will fascinate you and your kids. You will have approximately half an hour to enjoy this unique beach with your family. The interesting rocks in the crystal clear waters of the red beach are ideal for snorkelling!
