Greece Saronic Itinerary

Athens

Bursting with history, exploring the Acropolis and Parthenon is a must-do before you start your week-long adventure around the Saronic islands. Check-in for your trip from 1-pm at our marina in Alimos and start your holiday with some welcome drinks and canapés before setting sail by 3-pm for your first stop.

Agistri

Our first port of call is the idyllic island of Agistri, near the stunning Aegina. Spend the afternoon snorkelling, paddleboarding and splashing around the crystal-clear water before exploring this beautiful island and enjoying your first traditional Greek feast with your crew.

Hydra

Our next stop is the gem of the Aegean. With a ban on wheeled vehicles, romantic Hydra uses donkeys as its main means of transport. Spend the afternoon swimming and paddleboarding around the stunning bay before wandering the Greek island’s narrow cobbled backstreets – and watch the best sunset in Greece!

Spetses

One of the most romantic islands in the Saronic; visit the iconic Cathedral of Agios Nikolaos for history lovers, Paradise Beach for sun-worshippers, and scooter hire for the adventurous. We’ll stay here overnight, so time to wander its enchanting old town, where you’ll find lively bars and restaurants for a cocktail and some delicious mezze!

Poros

We make our way back north to the tiny Greek island of Poros, famed for its wild lemon trees, and watersports! Spend the afternoon zipping along the Aegean Sea wakeboarding, waterskiing or parasailing before sampling some of the best Greek food – and cocktails – on the island.

Epidavros

Epidvaros is rustic Greece at its finest — surrounded by dramatic mountains and orange groves as far as the eye can see. A short ride from town the world’s largest and most intact ancient Greek amphitheatre can be explored, famous for its near-perfect acoustics.

Aegina

After a refreshing morning swim in the crystal-clear Aegean Sea, we’ll set sail for a relaxed breakfast at the northeast corner of Aegina Island and then spend the afternoon making the most of your final day on the water. In the afternoon, visit the Temple of Aphia, before enjoying a traditional Greek feast on the last night of your island hopping adventure.

Where to next? Santorini & Mykonos

Our top pick is to hop on a ferry in the late afternoon, to explore one of the many islands of the Cyclades. With their picturesque white villages and legendary all-night parties, one of these islands is the perfect way to round off your sailing holiday before heading home. Our team would be happy to help.
