SAILING VACATIONS IN THE SARONIC ISLANDS

In close proximity to Athens lie the beautiful islands of the Saronic Gulf (Aegina, Agistri, Poros, Hydra and Spetses) and the peninsula of Methana. Those destinations are a little hidden gem that is not very well-known to international visitors, although they are some of the most beautiful and historically rich places in Greece. ​ They feature beautiful sandy and pebble beaches that are often surrounded by fragrant pine forests, elegant mansions and a lot of historical sites, which creates an ideal envirnoment for sailing vacations.

Being rather small in size, the islands do not have a lot of car traffic; on Hydra and Spetses, cars are prohibited entirely and many horse carriage or donkeys can be found on the streets instead.

 

The Saronic Islands are situated close to the Peloponnesian Coast and places such as Epidavros, Ermioni and Porto Cheli can easily be reached and included in an 1-week sailing vacations trip. A 2-week trip would allow you to extend your itinerary further south beyond the Saronic Islands to the Argolic Gulf and the Peloponnesian Coast and visit places like Nafplio, Astros, Tyros, Kyparissi and Monemvasia, and even get further to Elafonisi and Kythera Islands.

Sailing conditions are ideal and safe even for first time charterers, because the cruising area is very well protected and predominately sheltered from the strong Meltemi wind that affects most of the other island groups in Greece.

MONOHULL  SAILING  YACHTS

Monohull Sailing Yachts are beautiful classic sailing yachts that are characterized by their one hull. Since they are smaller in width than catamarans, it is easy to find them a room to moor in Greek ports, even in the peak months July and August.  All our monohull sailing yachts can be chartered bareboat and with a professional skipper.
