In Rafina and Nea Makri, those two fishing villages of the 1930s, one can still find today the traditional occupation of fishing, whereby fishermen use methods and techniques that previous generations have bequeathed to the next ones. The picturesque harbours, the fishing boats, the fishing nets and lines, and even more so the stories, the experience and the enthusiasm of the fishermen, all of these are part of a unique experience.
After having a great tour long the beautiful seafront waters of the eastern coast of Attica, we will prepare the fishing equipment, we will travel to virgin places, we will cast the fishing lines and we will dive into the sea while waiting for the time when we should pick up the lines and the catch.
During the return trip, as we will be hungry, we will visit one of the local taverns. We will give them our catch and will have the pleasure of tasting traditional recipes. Those recipes of grilled or panfried delicacies, together with the stories associated with them, will be the best way to finish our day.
Greece is a country surrounded by sea, and seafood goes back for centuries, as a main dish, a starter or meze. When there is such abundance of fish, this is always cause for celebration, as is the case with the “sardine feast” organized every year in Rafina by the Fishermen’s Association.
Participate in a life experience, together with Captain Panagiotis (in Rafina) and Captain Giannis (in Nea Makri), both very experienced fishermen.
Tradition is combined with entertainment and the result is an unforgettable life experience for people of all ages.
