Plan a relaxed sailing holiday in the Saronic Gulf south of Athens with reliable winds and a good variety of islands to visit.
Start your sailing holiday from Athens and discover the unspoilt islands of the Saronic Gulf and Argolic Gulf. These Greek islands have bustling, cosmopolitan towns, ancient temples, Byzantine castles, traditional fishing harbours and picturesque anchorages. On a yacht charter holiday you will find so many interesting places to visit with a great mix of modern and ancient Greek culture.
This is a popular sailing holiday destination with an enormous choice of bareboat charter yachts and suits sailors looking for a change from the Ionian. You will enjoy reliable sailing winds every day but the area is sheltered from the strong meltemi wind which can blow in the Aegean during the summer.
This yachting centre is easily accessible with daily flights to Athens so you can add a day or two in a hotel to explore this fascinating capital city. Stroll through Plaka, Gazi and Psiri with their small streets dotted with cafes, ouzeries, tavernas, shops and galleries. A trip to Athens would not be complete without also visiting the Parthenon and Acropolis Museum.
