Sailing route 1
The islands of the Saronic Gulf are the most easily accessible islands by motor yacht from Athens.
The Saronic Gulf and the nearby Argolis prefecture of the Peloponnese mainland are an ideal destination for shorter trips from Athens and are also recommended for less experienced sailors due to the short distances involved and the relatively mild winds in comparison to other sailing areas in Greece.
You can start your trip from Flisvos marina and visit the islands of Aigina, Spetses, Hydra and Poros with two more stops in Ermioni and Epidavros located on the adjacent Peloponnese coast. This itinerary is ideal for a week long charter. For those with only a few days any of the above destinations may be included or omitted as time permits.
For those looking for a longer two week charter in the same area the historic cities of Monemvasia and Nafpleio on the second leg of the Peloponnese are easily included.
A brief description of the islands and their highlights are included below.
