What people are saying about Ouranoupoli

Value for money is great! We had a wonderful day on the boat and the beach on the island is beautiful. It is best to be there early and secure the most beautiful place at the front of the boat. The food is underwhelming and little so pack something - but that was totally fine with us! Recommended!

It was a great trip (kurva jó)! We have visited a nice snorkelling place and jumped a lot from the boat, than we had a great time at Alikes beach. The lunch was small but tasty, would recommend it anytime!

Very nice boat, the excursion was not too long, which for us was perfect. The boat was clean and the people working there very polite.

We had such a good time on the boat and swimming in the green water of the Ammouliani island.

It was very beautiful and so uncomplicated! We would book it again!
