Three Mpoukes


The bay in Three Boukes is a natural harbor, whose inputs are protected by the islands of Platia and Sarakiniko. Three Boukes stands for three inputs and takes its name from the fact that the two islands are not only providing port, but three different inputs and outputs.

During the First World War the deepwater mooring in Three Boukes used by the allied navies as anchorage for hospital ships.
The English Romantic poet Rupert Brooke,during the Kallipolis campaign developed septicemia and transferred to a French hospital ship anchored in the bay Three Boukes.

He died aboard on April 23, 1915 and is buried in an olive grove just across the bay. So for him the words of the most famous poem: "If I must die, just remember this of me: That there's some corner of a foreign land that is forever England" became a reality.
Today a large part of the bay is inaccessible to visitors as part of the Greek naval base, but the tomb is reached by a paved road.

We are pleased to give you the opportunity to visit the grave, either with or without a driver, by car or bus. Please contact us for details.
