Humans have been sailing the shimmering azure waters of Greece for millennia. Once you see it for yourself, you’ll understand why. Greece and its lovely islands have so much to offer travelers of all ages and interests.
Below are just a few of the many spots you’ll want to visit in Greece:
- Athens. Home of the Acropolis and the Parthenon (a UNESCO World Heritage Site), the Greek capital makes a great jumping off point to begin your journey. In addition to its wonderful beaches — good for swimming or sunning — you can walk through the National Gardens, visit the National Archaeological Museum, or spend the afternoon shopping.
- Ionian Islands. The 7 principal and 30 minor islands of this group lie to the north and west of Athens. Their golden beaches can be reached via convenient day sails through turquoise waters.
- Corfu — Corfu (“Kerkyra” in Greek) one of the principal islands in the Ionian chain; its old town is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The marina in Gouvia, on Corfu’s east coast, is popular with sailors.
- The Sporades — This group of 4 principal and 24 minor islands is located off the mainland’s east coast in the Aegean Sea. The island of Skiathos, popular with visitors, is a forested island in sharp contrast to its many inlets and beaches.
- Northeastern Aegean — Lesbos (“Lesvos” in Greek) the largest of the North Aegean islands lies closer to Turkey than Greece. Farther north is Samothrace, famous for its “Winged Victory” sculpture. To the south is the island of Samos, the birthplace of Pythagoras and Aesop.
- The Cyclades — Southeast of the Greek mainland, the Cyclades (220 islands) stretch down to the Sea of Crete. Paros, Delos, Mykonos and Santorini are among the best known principal islands, where you will find gorgeous beaches and ancient ruins along with the traditional villages with narrow streets and whitewashed houses.
- The Dodecanese — Off the Turkish coast in the southern Aegean are the 12 principal and 120 minor islands of the Dodecanese. Two of the most famous are Kos and Rhodes. A 14th century fortress guards the Kos harbor entrance. The Colossus of Rhodes — one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World — towered over the port until an earthquake leveled it in 226 BC.
No matter where you sail in Greece, you can expect crystal blue waters, breathtaking vistas, friendly people and nonstop fun.
