BOAT HIRE from Yaliskari Bay
Small motorboat hire is available from Yaliskari Bay. A boat is the quickest way to get around and ideal for exploring the spectacular Northeast coastline and for reaching waterside tavernas, coves and beaches, which are almost inaccessible any other way.
We suggest boats are pre-booked to ensure availability, particularly in the high season
