Makronisos Islet, Attica

Opposite to the coast of Lavreotiki at the southern part of Euboekos Bay it is situated the wild and arid island of Makronissos (“the long island” in Greek), or Nissos Elenis (the island of Helen) as it was known in antiquity. During the period of the civil war in Greece and the years after, until 1974, this island served as a place of exile and tortures of the political opponents of the government.

The eastern coast of the island has several small sandy beaches, accessible only by boat or yacht, provided the captain of the boat knows very well the sea, as several reefs scattered around may prove dangerous. A small cove, well protected from the winds is found at the southern coast; be cautious when reaching this cove, as there is an invisible reef some 200 meters far from the coast.

The island is found at a distance of some 2-4 nautical miles far from the boat slide of Lavrio, depending on the coast you choose to visit.
