Why choose a sailing holiday in Greece? Maybe because it combines beautiful crystal-clear waters, fantastic, safe weather conditions and a multitude of islands with diverse landscapes and historic monuments.

Yachts

If you have never been on a sailing holiday, you will be blown away by the options available to you. Yachts are available for charter, either with a skipper for the inexperienced or bareboat for the experienced sailor. Sailing fleets hold new and nearly new yachts from 32ft to 51ft, with 2 to 5 cabins, so there's plenty of room for a group of up to ten people. The yachts are fully equipped and maintained to a very high standard, providing all the necessary comforts for a wonderful holiday. CD players, IPOD/MP3 connectors, fully equipped galleys with refrigerator, and bed linen are all standard. All yachts are wheel steer and are equipped with sun Biminis and outboard motors.

Choice

Your sailing destinations have many options. If you are an experienced sailor, you will enjoy sailing on the Aegean Sea, around the Cyclades or the Dodecanese Islands. For the less experienced, the safer bays and more mild winds of the Ionian Sea, the Saronic Gulf, or the Sporades Islands may be more suitable.

Ionian

The Ionian islands lie on the western side of Greece. There are seven main islands and numerous islets, some unpopulated. The most popular sailing destinations are Corfu, Lefkas, Zante, Ithaca and Kefalonia. The main characteristic of the Ionian Islands is that they are full of trees, right down to the sea level. This creates a beautiful landscape for yachts to anchor in isolated bays. The islands are all quite close together, allowing sailing from one to another in less than a couple of hours, so you can see plenty of islands on your trip. The weather conditions are perfect for sailing, allowing for safe anchorage and swimming.

Aegean

The Aegean Sea lies between the coast of Greece and Turkey and is home to some 2000 islands, the largest of which is Crete. Situated in the heart of the Aegean, the Cyclades Islands are ideal for sailing holidays and have a wild landscape, with long sandy beaches. Mykonos, Poros, Ios and Santorini are among the most famous, with their busy cosmopolitan nightlife. The weather conditions can be a little more challenging, as the Meltemi blows strongly during the summer months, so the Ionian Sea may be a better option for a relaxing holiday.

Sailing holidays in Greece give you the chance to enjoy the incredible landscapes of the different islands and all their diverse cultural traditions. You are free to create your own itinerary and get as much out of the holiday as possible.

The local people are warm and friendly, and the regional food, like Souvlaki, Dolmadakia, Choriatiki, and Baklava, the traditional cake, are all absolutely delicious. So what are you waiting for, swimming in turquoise waters, learning to sail, eating fresh fish and sharing the ocean with dolphins - it's the perfect holiday.
