Best destinations for sailing in Greece near Athens The islands of the Saronic and Argolic gulfs are particularly popular with sailors, primarily because they are so close to Athens. Despite their proximity to the megalopolis, they are as packed with as much atmosphere and charm as their more distant cousins in the outer Aegean. The whole area has retained its natural beauty, enhanced by the sense of history, with delightful little ports and coves. Among their great advantages is that the south coast of Attica protects them from strong winds and rough seas, which in combination with the sheltering arm of the northern Peloponnesus makes them practically a big closed bay, with invariably calm and safe seas enabling flotilla and family sailing holidays in Greece. The most popular sailing destinations near Athens 1. Attica: In Attica, you will find some of the best organised marinas: Zea, Flisvos (a marina to rivals Monaco’s), Faliro, Alimos, Glyfada and Vouliagmeni.

We highly recommend that you do the following before you book your bareboat charter: Clearly communicate to all involved what will be expected of them Plan an itinerary that is not overly aggressive unless everyone is experienced sailor (remember, many in the party probably want to return refreshed and relaxed from their holiday, not stressed from oversailing). Have a group meeting and walk them through the itinerary, what they can expect to be doing each day, and how much sailing/motoring will be involved. Get agreement from everyone that they approve the itinerary and that they will not be upset if they cannot sit on the beach reading a book every day, all day. If time permits, ask the inexperienced sailors to…
