Once upon a time you were dreaming to go in a Greek island, now to go there is a dream of a … summer-night ! Despite that there is an island completely free of corona-virus and safe because it’s … uninhabited ! So, SAS organize at the 20th of September a day-trip to ‘ Makronisos ’, an island in short distance from Lavrio that belongs administratively to Cyclades, going by traditional boat ( caique ) for short walking, visiting old historical buildings from exile era and of course swimming in superb beaches ! We plan to stay 3,5 hours approx. on the island, enough time to explore it and enjoy.

Keep in mind that there is completely no facilities in Makronisos, no tavern even no canteen, nothing !, so bring your survival kit with plenty of water.

Ticket for the boat is 15 € round-trip plus VAT, if you like to keep the receipt as a souvenir ! This is payable on boat or at the travel agent in Lavrio.

Please declare your participation as soon as possible and not later than the 16th 19:00 p.m. in order to organize the transportation as the number of seats on boat are limited. Also weather condition is an important point to focus as 6 beaufort and over is forbidden for sea-travel, so in this case our day-excursion will be converted to an interesting walking in the nearby National Park of Sounio where the ancient mines existed, visiting the Technological Park of the French Company of Lavrio Mines, swimming at the lovely beach of ‘ Thoriko Bay ’ and of course eating in one of the many fish taverns in Lavrio which is standard in both cases !

Meeting point is at ‘ Roloi café ’ in Lavrio at 08:30 a.m.  Estimating arrival time back to Athens is 19:00 p.m.

Please guarantee your participation and … double secure, as the boat travel requires a minimum number of passengers to be done.

Leaders will be Georgos and Anna Foteinos, e-mail geoplanf@otenet.gr   Emergency phone 6945 386255.
