Mitikas is my last stay in my 2016-en trip (number 4). In front of Mitikas there is an island and there is abandon village to explore. Desert (after the 1953 earthquake) Porto Leone village on Kalamos island Porto Leone on google maps

In place number 2 (Lakonian Bay) we would like to:

1. Snorkel over ancient ruins of Pavlopetri (snorkel is allowed, dive not)

2. Be again at Simos beach Elafonisi island



from Gythio where we were in 2015 it was 80 km, from current location 30 km only

3. Petrified forest http://www.visitvatika.gr/nature/petrifiedforest.html

Please find mentioned below map of the trip from place number 2 to petrified forest.



It is only 40 km trip but I know that after Elafonisos island it is more like "open Sea" so depending on conditions we will try to finish this trip or not. Not sure also about mooring/anchor conditions near petrified forest. I have not seen any marina on google. Maybe RIB.net members from Greece can tell me if I can anchor here safely to visit this nature phenomena.

I'm really "normal" person (if person love ribbing can be normal ...)
A lot of Polish families go to Greece by car (not like me by ferry) and during 2-3 weeks they are in 3 places and make some car trips to see/explore something.

We prefer to trips use RIB which is more expensive (petrol) but you do not need AC when drive 30-40-50 km/hr.

Of course between places to stay we tow RIB.

This year maybe will have some companion with other family and small motorboat (very good one made for Norwegian customers STING 530)

Let me remind you places to stay


Place number 3 has a lot of positives for me. It is a lake 2km x 2km connected to the Sea. Please find mentioned below small channel:



Only few boats. Not any hotel, only some bungalows and one small camping. Only Greek tourists (not a lot of people). It is a lake surround by mountains so kids can use inflatable kayak.



And I would like to make a trip through Corinthian channel. Cost is 50 EUR per small boat but I hope that view is worth of it:


Here is a route about 50 km to Korfos (some small village)



If wind blow not so much and we find it safe we can try to visit Aponisos which is private small island open for tourists.


It is only 18 km longer trip:


Aponisos Agistri - The Location

Jeff
SIvota is really nice and you have a lot of small islands near Sivota.
There is about 80 km between Mitikas (where I be with kids) and Paxos.
Unfortunately mostly open Sea exposed to waves and wind until you reach Lefkas (if there is a path under the bridge).

So maybe some meeting and real English style steak from the grill ?

First 3 places on my map are packed of some ruins, historical places.
The last one Mitikas is for relax only and explore nature. I have never been at Ionian Sea by boat so will compare to South Crete and Peloponese this year.
