You will have the opportunity to relax for 2 hours on a sunbed and under the shade of umbrellas, on a beach with a beach bar and a taverna where you can order any traditional seafood you desire besides the menu you have bought.

The area is also ideal for those who love exploration since in its Northern part there are small hills with steep cliffs, if you able to reach them, you will be speechless by the view to the open sea, Sithonia and the Mount Athos peninsula.

Great trip with professional personnel !! We joined the blue lagoon cruise, departing from Sithonia. Nice, relaxing trip, we enjoyed it. Banana beach is the must destination, an almost private beach. Tasty and very well organized BBQ on the beach. The local market place of Ammouliani island was interesting and the last destination where the boat stopped at the open sea and we jumped in the sea from the boat was fantastic. All COVID-19 regulations like social distances, masks and frequent disinfections was seemed to be observed. Finally, about the personnel was there at any time to help.
