Discover the warm, crystal-clear waters of western Messenia, starting in the coastal town of Marathopoli. From the harbor, you'll enjoy a short cruise to Proti Island, its name deriving from the sea god Proteus, son of Poseidon. According to mythology, Proti Island resembles a crocodile, and when Proteus was angry, he'd transform into the beast and take the island's shape!

The cruise is just ten short minutes. Along the way, your captain Yiannis will share interesting stories about the island's history. Enjoy relaxing on the beach, swimming, snorkeling, fishing, or sunbathing. The turquoise waters are clear and perfect for water sports.
