Theodorou Island – Lazareta Island Cruise

Go on a sea safari around the famous nature reserve island of Theodorou!

The nature reserve island of Theodorou hosts thousands of migratory birds, a population of rare wild goats, called Kri-Kri, and plenty of mythology and history.

First we go to the north side of the island, where a Venetian castle, built in 1583, stands proud at the highest point of the island. Cruising around the island, we will come across a lot of wildlife before we drop anchor at the southern bay. You can then enjoy snorkelling at the wreck of a German aircraft, a Junker 52 shot down during World War II.

Finally, we make a swimming stop at the tiny island of Lazareta. Its two secret sandy beaches and the vibrant marine life of the reef make a lasting impression on all who visit.
