Crete is an island of contrasts! Basically a mountainous island with peaks reaching 2.500 metres, with thousands of paths for the nature lovers ideal for walking, hiking and climbing, but, also, with golden-yellow beaches along its extensive coastline. The great diversity of natural landscape Crete offers, ranging from the high mountains to the endless beaches, from the exotic palm tree groves to the fertile plains, make the island an attractive vacation destination.

Athens / Saronic

Athens / Saronic

With archaeological sites to explore, excellent food to enjoy and the tantalising prospect of lazy days spent sunbathing aboard the yacht at a secluded anchorage; an Athens yacht charter delivers on all the requirements for a superb Greek yacht charter. With the choice of 2 distinct cruising grounds you can sail to the beautiful Saronic islands of Aegina, Poros, Hydra and Spetse, and enjoy ancient ruins and castles, sandy beaches, unspoiled anchorages and small fishing ports. These charming islands have something for all the crew, from Hydra, with no cars, just horses and donkeys following the narrow cobbled streets, to Poros with it’s bustling restaurants and bars and watersports, to the ancient amphitheatre at Epidavros. This route also offers smoother sailing conditions in the summer months, as it is sheltered from the strong Meltemi winds that blow in the Cyclades. The second option is to head to the Cyclades, larger Islands, each with it’s own unique character. The Cyclades is a little more adventurous sailing with longer distances and stronger winds than the Saronic gulf.

The Cyclades islands are the most well-known of the Greek Islands. The Cyclades are islands of contrast, from the lively nightlife of Mykonos to the natural beauty and architectural style of Santorini, to the cosmopolitan islands of Paros and Naxos, and the unspoiled smaller ports and anchorages of Irakllia and Koufonisia, with each island having it’s own very unique feel and character. The Cyclades islands are further apart than the islands in the other cruising grounds in Greece and seeing them all can involve some longer days sailing. In the summer months the Meltemi wind can blow from the north making this an area best suited to the more experienced or adventurous sailors.

Four major islands make up the Sporades in the Aegean Sea: Skiathos, Skopelos, Alonissos, and Skyros. Skiathos is known for its castles; its rocks damaged King Xerxes’ ship in the Persian Wars. It is a forested island, with many inlets and beaches and is the home habitat of the Mediterranean Monk seal. Enjoy the beach at Koukounaries or, for the daring, the famous nudist Banana beach. Sail to the small ports and unspoiled bays on the Gulf of Volos. Venture further north the Mount Athos, home to medieval monasteries, or relax shore side at the modern marina in Porto Carras. Skiathos shot to fame in recent years when it acted as the set for the movie “Mamma Mia.”
