With its incredibly rich history, splendid nature scattered across thousands of islands throughout the Aegean and Ionian seas and its unique combination of decadent beach clubs and isolated ruins and grottos, a yacht charter in Greece is hard to beat.
The holiday of a lifetime, literally even, if you’d like. With over 2.000 islands to explore, it could take forever to visit every part of Greece, –and it would all be worth it. Take the famed Cyclades Islands, for instance. Considered the birthplace of Apollo, the God of practically everything in ancient Greek and Latin mythology, it is no wonder that the islands are home to some of Greece’s most important archaeological ruins. It also houses the traditional blue-and-white stucco towns that immediately spring to mind when you think of Greece and which can be spotted from far out at sea.
A yacht charter in Greece is about more than exploring cultural heritage, though. With everything from volcanic to shipwrecked, from black sands to red rocks and from deserted to lively; Greek beaches have it all. Whether you like your pristine white beaches to yourself or lined with exclusive beach clubs, top-notch restaurants and idyllic marina’s, you will not leave disappointed.
Following in the footsteps of Odysseus’ legendary journey takes you to and from countless Archipelagoes. Explore the unspoilt Sporades with its untamed pine forests, rare bird species and coastline dotted with caves to explore. Or set sail to the lush green Ionian Islands, with its world-famous ‘Shipwreck Beach’ and Kefalonia’s limestone coast to relax or to enjoy watersports from.
Enjoying the azure waters, it becomes clear how Homer’s ancient Greek epic poem turned into the word regular English word of ‘odyssey’, as a yacht charter in Greece is one that will leave you longing for a forever-voyage. Greece, like all of the Mediterranean, is best but also busiest to visit in summer. Whichever islands your epic journey takes you to, it is wise to think and plan ahead here.
