The ultimate couples’ boat journey awaits at the intriguing Theodorou islet. The Venetians, in their distinctive way, named it San Theodoro or San Todaro. In 1574, recognizing its strategic importance, they fortified the islet with a fortress to ward off pirates and Turkish invasions from the Platanias area.

While time has claimed much of the castles, remnants linger, along with the echoes of the small church of Agios Theodoros. Today, this spot is a sanctuary for the Cretan Goat Kri-Kri, whose presence adds a touch of wildlife. Originally transferred from the Cretan mountains, these wild goats find refuge on Theodorou, protected from poachers and other threats.

Indulge in a boat trip that explores the mysteries of Theodorou, offering glimpses of ancient history, castle ruins, and the charming church of Agios Theodoros. The cruise also includes stops at Theodorou and Lazaretta, promising a romantic journey filled with exploration and shared discoveries.
