Travel and Accom.

Upon your arrival at the airport, you will be greeted and transported to our project.

Volunteers will be accommodated in dormitories 100m from the beach. The dormitories are available in female-only or mixed-gender options and feature private bathrooms shared with other occupants in the room.

The hostel provides various amenities, including a bar area, a comfortable sitting area, and a communal kitchen and outside grill area for those who prefer to cook their meals. Additionally, some rooms offer balconies for relaxation, and the rooftop boasts stunning views of the sea, providing a serene environment to unwind after a day of volunteering.

You will enjoy two meals a day—breakfast and dinner—provided at a nearby restaurant. The menu features local cuisine prepared in Greek style, offering a delightful mix of meat, fish, and fresh vegetables. Lunch is not included but there are some delicious cheap options available nearby.

Upon arrival, volunteers will attend an orientation event that includes an introduction to Greek culture, an overview of the volunteer experience and program details, practical information, and safety guidelines.
