In front of Nidri, in the gulf, emerge the beautiful “Principalities” that next to each other and together with the peninsula of Agia Kyriaki on the right, create a magnificent island complex, something like a fjord. Worth a visit. At the port you can board one of the many daily cruises or rent a small boat or speedboat and explore on your own. Closer to Nidri, from west to east, are the islands of Sparti, Cheloni, Madouri, Scorpidi, Scorpios.
Everyone has their own story. The island of Sparta was bought by Onassis in 1963 from the noble family of Stavros, the oldest of the island. Next to Sparta, near the land, the small round rocky islet called Olive is called Chelonaki. Very close to the island is Madouri, which belongs to the Valaoritis family since the early 19th century. Two kilometers from Nidri, further behind Madouri, is the most famous of the islands, Aristotle Onassis’ Scorpio. He bought the island in 1963 and has since toured all the magazines and newspapers around the world after hosting the jet set of the entire planet.
North of Scorpio, is the island of Skorpidi, owned by Lebanon.
