A sailing holiday gives you the chance to really mix things up. Some of the bigger islands, such as Rhodes and Crete, offer contemporary culture and shopping alongside the more traditional villages. Others, such as tiny Symi, allow you to experience Greek life in its purest form. If you fancy some nightlife, however, you’ll find plenty on Zakynthos, while Kefalonia is a quiet little fishing island. The Greek islands are beautiful places to visit and stay, with an array of tavernas and bars offering you a traditional warm Greek welcome. Visiting Greece is fantastic – sailing Greece is even better.
