Between the large groups of older ladies screaming at each other, the very potent boat engine, and the disco-level loudness of the "soundtrack" that narrates a terrible script in four or five languages, the trip was utter torture. There must be a better way to do this.

Alykes beach

Reviewed By Beatrice H - Moosburg, Germany

Nice big beach, flat and kid-friendly.
Shallow water, very clear and safe.
3 beach bars to choose from, all playing their music- sometimes this gets a bit much with overlapping tunes.
Lots of space on the beach if you bring your own gear or play ball.
Parking only steps away.
There is more private Beaches on the island, but this is probably the biggest beach here.

Water Sports Centre of Nea Roda

Reviewed By Liza W

We loved spending our days down at the Water Sports centre with Dinos and Xenia, they were completely flexible with whatever we wanted to do, very reasonably priced and excellent teachers. We stayed at Eagle's palace but loved Dinos relaxed and accomodating attitude so did all...MoreThank you very much dear Lisa for choosing us for your water sports activities. We are happy to know that we did your holidays a bit better. We hope you come again all 3 of you soon!

Calypso Cruises

Reviewed By ardom - europe

We went as part of a group, I enjoyed the sail on the water and it is moderately interesting to view the monasteries. It seemed to me considering we drove from and to Thessaloniki for 2 and a half hours on the water a not outstanding day. But as women are not allowed this is the closed a mixed group can get.

Drenia Island

Reviewed By Николай В

One of the semi-populated little Islands near Ammouliani is one of your options for visiting with a boat. So we did. We came in the morning to see something different and wild. But we were wrong. After our boarding on the beach, there came the big boat, bringing dozens of tourists on the island, filling the crowdy beach. We didn't like also the sand on it, because we found it dirty. So we left the island immediately and went snorkeling near the neighbor smaller Islands.
