Gavdos : the southernmost tip of Europe

Certainly, one of the best trips someone can take in the Greek seas having a genuine sense of seclusion. We will set sail from the south and after covering just  21 miles of open sea we will arrive at the southernmost tip of Europe. Everything here is in a different dimension and tranquility plays the leading role. The beaches are totally deserted and isolated, one more beautiful than the next, and the heavenly natural bays are ideal to enjoy calm evenings under the stars. Moreover, in Gavdos the Milky Way is visible and is one of the best places in the world to see and photograph the galaxy because of the geographic location. Surely, the time you spend in Gavdos is never enough , an island which is so close  and at the same time so far away from Europe.

In Gavdos, there is only a small number of year-round residents and services for tourists are very basic. As of 2011, the total population of Gavdos was 152 inhabitants.  In fact , fewer than 50 people live permanently on the island. In the summer, there are more than 3000 people, most of whom are campers and tourists who stay at specific spots. Fortunately,  with our sailing boat we can always visit  magnificent remote beaches of the island which very few visitors can enjoy.

  • we need about 3 hours to get to Gavdos island from the port of Chora Sfakion
