Discover beautiful Greek islands

Thursday, 08 March 2018 12:51
Greece has 6.000 islands in total, scattered in the Aegean and Ionian Sea, of which only 227 are inhabited. They take up 7,500 km of the country’s total 16,000 km coastline. Spreading in two main seas, the Aegean and the Ionian Sea, the Greek islands are divided into smaller groups. The most popular island group in Greece is certainly the Cyclades islands: Mykonos island, Paros, Santorini island, Naxos and Ios are famous islands all over the world, while the rest of Cyclades keep lower profile in tourism development. The Cycladic architecture is world famous and the culture of the population is very rich. The islands of Dodecanese and Ionian are also very popular. Travel to Corfu island, Rhodes island, Zakynthos, Kos and Kefalonia also get very popular, while Karpathos, Lefkas, Thassos and Skiathos are islands that are becoming more and more famous every year. The good thing is that despite tourist development, the Greek islands do not lose their original character and provide wonderful atmosphere for true relaxation. Have in mind that many times, an island and its main village has the same name. Also in Cyclades islands, most capital towns are called Chora.

Sailing in Greece, The Cyclades Islands

Friday, 23 February 2018 10:07
Sailing Holidays in the Cyclades There are around 220 islands in the Cyclades, including the well-known islands of Santorini with its famous blue domed churches and Mykonos for its party lifestyle. There are two points in which to explore the Cyclades Islands from, Mykonos and Paros. We recommend starting in Paros as it's in the middle of the islands; an ideal starting point for a week or longer. We would recommend this area of Greece, is a destination, for a keener sailor; with the meltimi blowing heavily during the summer season it's an exciting sailing ground for an experienced crew. Without a doubt this is the windiest area in Greece to sail during the height of summer, July/August and also the beginning of September. This area is very open to the meltimi, which can blow a force 6 and above during the summer. This area of Greece is fairly far south, so enjoys a really warm summer with temperatures reaching up to 33 degrees in July and August. At the beginning and end of the season, May and October, you will find yourself bathing in temperatures in the early 20's. Suggested Sailing routes in the Cyclades for one or two…

Sailing in Greece, the Dodecanese

Wednesday, 21 February 2018 11:59
Sailing in the Dodecanese The Dodecanese are a diverse and rewarding group of 12 main islands and numerous small islets, nestled along the Turkish coast in the south-eastern Aegean Sea. You’ll find an exciting mix between ancient historical sites, deserted islands and busy towns offering some fantastic nightlife. Our base islands of Kos and Rhodes are broadly popular, welcoming a large number of tourists each year. Sailing here offers sailors the opportunity to enjoy the liveliness of these two bases and then the greater thrill of sailing away to enjoy the peaceful, unspoilt and diverse outer islands. It is with these smaller islands that you'll fall in love, enjoy their sandy beaches, warm waters, rich history, enchanting character, Venetian architecture, Byzantine churches and medieval castles. Highlighting once more the wonderful freedom that sailing holidays offer, the Dodecanese actually has far more islands accessible by yacht than the 12 that are widely quoted. Sail away from the ferry routes to smaller, unspoilt islands, with their sandy beaches, beautifully clear waters and welcoming traditional Greek tavernas. The choices for a one week yacht charter in the Dodecanese is generally split into two - the islands above Kos and those below, which include…
