Greek coastline - sailing in Greece

Greek sailing holidays

Sailing the Greek coasts is a real treat, as well for novices as for advanced sailors.
For flotilla sailing holidays the Saronic and Ionian areas are typically the best suited since these areas are less demanding and therefore have more flotillas fleets around. To a less extend the Northern Sporades can also offer easy sailing but this area is difficult to reach, you simply have to fly on Skiathos, no other real options of getting there.
The Cyclades and the Dodecanese can be more demanding, especially the southern part of the Cyclades (South Aegean Sea) and the open stretch of water between the Cyclades and the Dodecanese, where waves - due to a very large fetch - easily reach 1.5 metres. Yet, among this plethora of sailing areas stretches a coastline in total that is simply worth exploring every metre of it. There are coves, bays and snug anchorages everywhere though not all are suitable for spending the night or are meltemi proof.
Even if you are a reasonable good sailor but the Aegean waters are unknown to you, you might still consider a captain, a crewed charter: less stress since he or she will skipper and you will have your local guide on board to point you towards the best places to swim, anchor, dine, find archaeological sites, etc etc along the splendid Greek coastline. The ultimate and most luxurious way to cruise the Greek island and Turkish coasts is by Blue Cruises or Gulet Cruises.
