Yacht sailing in Greece

Get away from the crowd with relaxing Greek islands sailing

By Jenny Wilson published on 15 April 2024

There are many opportunities to discover a wealth of fascinating tourist attractions when you take a Greek islands sailing trip. The country has some spectacular sights and you should definitely make the time to visit must-see destinations such as Athens. However, if you and your family and friends would like a couple of quieter days, there are some less busy spots to be found along the coast.

Just a short sail along the coast is Korfos, a small port town situated in Sofiko Bay. The settlement itself has a few good restaurants but the chief attraction here is the stunning natural beauty of the region. With plenty of freshly-scented pine trees and an abundance of olive groves, this is the ideal place to walk among some of the prettiest Greek countryside. The sheltered beach is also perfect for a relaxing swim.

Sailing in Greece - Explore quiet islands

Once you have meandered your way through the spectacular Greek islands, head further along the coastline of the mainland to Porto Cheli. Once a quiet fishing village, this is now a popular destination for families who want to avoid the usual tourist hotspots and see more of the real Greece. Porto Cheli makes a great base from which to explore interesting sites such as the historic city of Nafplio. However, the chief draw is the safe, clean beaches, which range from busier ones offering watersports to secluded coves which are virtually empty. A blissful way to spend a day.
