Peculiarities of yachting in Greece
Multifaceted Greece attracts fans of yachting with its numerous islands, coastal towns and cozy bays, as well as the beautiful waters of the Aegean and Ionian Seas. Tourists discover new sides of this country taking every cruise. It surprises with its authenticity, and can be tirelessly explored for years. One can travel on board a yacht using popular generally accepted routes, as well as just sailing away from civilization, in order to retire in deserted places.
The most popular yachting destinations are as follows: the islands of the Ionian Sea and the Saronic Gulf, Dodecanes, Sporades and Cyclades. Such islands as Mykonos, Crete, Rhodes, Corfu, Santorini, Syros and Delos will not leave travelers indifferent.
The advantages of yachting in Greece include the following ones:
- Most marinas are berths in cities. They are relatively simple and not as chic as, for example, in Croatia, but at the same time they are comfortable and relatively inexpensive (the night of parking will cost about 5-20 euros).
- Safety of parking stands and overnight stays due to the Greek culture and hospitality, so you shouldn’t worry about the safety of the yacht and things inside. The water craft can be safely moored in any cozy bay without any problems, which is very convenient during the season when all the marinas are full.
- Amazing land with the archipelagoes of more than two thousand islands. They are located rather tight in the waters of the Ionian and Aegean Seas. Due to the short distances, one can visit many new and interesting places for a short period of time, while traveling on board a yacht.
Favorable climatic conditions
Greece has a Mediterranean climate, characterized by dry and hot summers, wet and mild winters with above-zero temperatures. The holiday season is always open for tourists here. You can enjoy greens, fruits and vegetables the whole year round. September and October are traditional and the most suitable for yachting, when it is not so hot and the rainy season hasn’t started yet. Spring months are also favorable. You can go yachting in summer, but it is important to keep in mind that there may be water problems on small islands, so you need to stock up it on the mainland. Moreover, in summer, as a rule, it’s more difficult to find a place to stop. Local ports are really overcrowded at this time.
Without any doubt, a properly arranged and planned cruise on board a yacht will bring pleasure, new discoveries, positive and unforgettable impressions.
