Greece Yachting Travel Guide
Warm waters and reliable breezes provide perfect sailing conditions. Winds build throughout the day, but the calm mornings are ideal for beginners.
The strongest winds are found in the Aegean Sea, during winter and mid-summer. Lemnos and Halkidiki are top destinations, with Lesvos offering more sheltered conditions for beginners. The Northern Sporades Islands are a good choice for short flotilla routes. For a greater challenge, head south to explore the Dodecanese or Cyclades groups.
For calmer breezes and sheltered bays, try Vounaki or Porto-Heli in the southern Peloponnese region, or the Ionian coastline offers the option to join a flotilla, exploring the islands such as Corfu and Lakka.
For the ultimate Greek sailing experience, yacht charters are highly popular. Take in as much of Greece as you please, exploring unmapped islands and anchoring up at night to dine in seafood tavernas.
