Daily sailing cruises from the city of Chalkis to the shores of the gulf of Northern Evia with a sailing boat. A trip that combines the relaxing pace of a holiday with the needed dose of marine adventure! Enjoy a dip into the bright blue crystal clear waters as well as visit to small and unique private seasides, approaching shorelines that are impossible to access overland, where you will have the chance to swim – sunbath - snorkel.
Declant beach, our first destination, is a deserted beach with turquoise water, small pebbles and pine trees end up to the beach. It is located just below Kantili mountain in the North Evian gulf and accessible only by sea. We will be able to moor to a permanent dock. We will enjoy the beach and the teal waters for about an hour and explore the small coves by swimming.
Keen walkers can enjoy a small hiking path along the beach, but you can also relax under the shade of a huge pine tree on the beach.
The island was leased in 1930 by the Englishman Francis Tervil Petr (Francis Turville-Petre), hence the second name, who built his villa there. His house was bombed during the Second World War, destroying all vegetation throughout the island. Ruins of the house are still preserved for us to visit.
