Greek Islands / A Claim To Fantastic
Greece owns a multitude of island clusters and each lay claim to fantastic cruising grounds. Each have a few things in common – an idyllic climate, short cruising distance between the islands, stunning beaches and picture perfect towns and villages. The majority of cruising takes place around the island groups of the Cyclades and Ionian, which lie in relatively close proximity from the country capital of Athens: Another popular set of islands is the Dodecanese too – these lie closer to Turkey than mainland Greece though.
The Ionian Islands, made up of seven stunning islands dotted around the Grecian Sea are a superyacht charters paradise. Draped in dramatic scenery and owning influences from the British and French, these islands tend to have a different feel to the rest.
Starting in Corfu, enjoy a busy island life with bustling marinas, many reminders of Greece’s ancient history and adrenaline-fueled activities; moving on to Cephaloni and Ithaca these islands are quieter and own an elegant charm and Zakynthos is a small island that plays host to those looking to dance the night away and swim in the clearest waters of the region. Enjoy a yacht charter in Greece’s islands starting in April and end late summer in October. Destinations Cyclades / Dodecanese/ Ionian Islands/Andros/Milos/Sifnos/Kithnos.
