There is a huge variety of overnight mooring options, including luxurious modern marinas, century-old town harbours, and idyllic and tranquil bays with crystal clear water.
Our sailing destinations
Greece is one of the best cruising areas in the world. Stunning emerald water and rugged high islands provide the perfect back drop for sailing between the islands in the warm Mediterranean climate, and delightful village fishing harbours offer the perfect setting for an evening in a traditional Greek taverna. On the West coast of Greece, in the Ionian Islands, the typical summer winds start off gently each day, building as the afternoon progresses before dying off completely around sunset. This offers the perfect balance for swimming, relaxing and playing on the water toys over a long lunch stop, before enjoying a sail towards the next evening’s destination.
For those looking for some more exciting sailing, the islands cosset to Athens offer the perfect sailing area. The Saronic Gulf, stretching from the famous Corinth Canal in the North down to the island of Spetses in the South, typically experiences stronger breezes throughout the summer months, meaning some brisk sailing legs on occasions. The islands are also spread further apart, so perfect for those looking for some longer daily sailing legs. Rugged and often stark hills and cliffs rise high above the sea, making for an incredible backdrop to the deep blue water bays.
