DONOUSA: Explore this Hidden Gem on a Luxurious Yacht
Let’s how you can organize an exciting day trip to Donousa. Explore the hidden beauties of the island on a luxurious yacht!
If you are planning your vacation in Greece, there are a few things you should keep in mind. First of all, Greece is a destination with many different options and opportunities that can fit the style of every traveler. However, do not settle for a conventional vacation!
I suggest you try to combine different experiences and make your vacation a full, entertaining, yet relaxing, unforgettable memory. What better way to do that than with a day trip ?! This trip offers you the chance to experience the hidden gems of some beautiful Greek islands apart from the worldwide ones like Mykonos and Santorini. Take a trip like a local and unlock the authentic Greek traveling experience!
More specifically, one of the many trip options I suggest is the one that includes the island of Donousa, a relatively small island that is part of an island complex known as the Small Cyclades. Donousa is located east of Naxos and north of the island of Amorgos with only 160 permanent residents.
Donousa is considered one of the hidden gems of the Aegean, not known among the tourist destinations, perfect for travelers that would like to experience, within a day, the Greek beauties with a bit more privacy. First of all, upon arrival, a stroll around Stavros is a must! Stavros is the biggest village on the island, including the island’s port. It is a picturesque village that carries the authentic Cycladic features of narrow alleys between white and blue houses. While in Stavros, feel free to explore the tastes of Greece, with some delicious fresh surf and turf meals offered at the traditional taverns near the port.
A trip like this cannot go on without a stop for a refreshing swim during the scorching heat of the summer months. Donousa has many different options beaches to offer. If you are looking for a slightly more organized beach, try the crystal clear waters of Stavros, a beach located right next to the island’s port.
However, I dare you to be a bit more adventurous and put on your explorer’s face by visiting some of the island’s secluded beaches. For example, Kedros is a beach considered worth visiting! It is located near the main port of the island and it offers a unique experience of turquoise waters with golden sand and a unique sight! Visitors can see the remains of a German shipwreck from WW2.
Livadi and Fikio are, also, some beautiful beaches, accessible only by sea and, as they are unorganized, they can offer a relaxing, quiet swim at a place that captures the essence of pure nature and privacy!
