If you are looking for something different to do with the family this year, sailing holidays in Greece could be the perfect solution. There are so many different aspects to this fabulous destination, meaning there is plenty for all ages to enjoy.

Sailing Greece - Fun for all the family

Greece has long been popular for beach holidays, with a dizzying multitude of gorgeous locations from which to choose. Santorini’s spectacular cliffs provide a stunning backdrop, while the volcanic sands offer unparalleled sunbathing opportunities. Families will find plenty of safe bays to swim in on the many islands, with the clear temperate waters also ideal for those who enjoy snorkelling or scuba diving.

Paros is the perfect location for those with an appreciation of the authentic laidback Greek experience, while the many charms of Hydra keep visitors coming back year after year. Mykonos has a reputation as a party island due to its vibrant nightlife; however, it also boasts spectacular architecture and a number of great restaurants. If ancient architecture is your passion, then you are simply spoilt for choice; for example, the islands of Delos and Aegina are rich in cultural delights.

A stop-off in Athens marks the beginning and end of your journey and has the advantage of easy access from many airports. The city itself is packed with some of the most breathtaking sights imaginable and is an ideal excursion for the entire family.

In addition to all this, the freedom of an exciting sailing holiday aboard your very own luxury yacht ensures an adventure for all to enjoy.
