Greece is one of the destinations where you can enjoy a sailing holiday. The gentle island nation is known as the cradle of western civilisation, as it influenced the majority of how we perceive a wide range of concepts from art to trade, medicine, philosophy, history, politics, and athletics. Greece is in the heart of the Mediterranean Sea, making it a perfect location for sailing while enjoying the turquoise waters and the lovely view.
The itinerary of a good Greek sailing holiday starts in Aegina, which is near Athens. The island boasts of golden sunsets and breathtaking views—and it provides good insight on Greek history and mythology. The trip includes exploring the beaches and ancient beaches on the island, too. From there, the yacht sails to Hydra, the gem of the Saronic Gulf where you can explore sunny paths, stone mansions, and crystal clear waters. Cars and motorbikes are banned in Hydra, making it a more unique destination where you can enjoy fresh air. If you need to get around, you can consider riding donkeys.
No sailing holiday in Greece is complete without visiting Leonidio, a town that features pebble beaches and a lavishly wild landscape. The harbour has fish taverns and local bars where you can unwind with a cold beer. The itinerary then takes you to other places like Nafplio, Spetses, Poros, and Athens.
You can book a Greek sailing holiday through a company that specialises in organising high-quality sailing holidays aboard a luxurious yacht. Even if you have never sailed before, the company can arrange everything for you and make sure that you can have a stunning experience. The yacht will be manned by a captain who you can ask questions about sailing. You may be asked to help in simpler activities, too, such as holding fenders and pulling ropes. Reputable organisers of sailing holidays will provide insurance and other things you might need for your trip, such as end cleaning, a professional skipper, towels, boat toys, snorkelling gear, and bed linens.
