Greece, featured many of times in Condé Nast’s awards list, ranks in the top 20 countries of travel destinations.
With over 6,000 islands spread throughout the Ionian and Aegean seas, the most popular array of islands is divided into 5 groups: Cyclades, Ionian, Sporades, Dodecanese and Saronic. Saronic Islands Yacht Charter is one of the most beautiful charters available in Greece.
The Saronic Gulf Islands are those closest to Athens and very popular amongst the locals because of this, especially on the weekends. Although not among the most famous destinations for tourists, these islands are the perfect luxury charter yacht getaway for a near trip from Athens.
As with all Greek islands, each of the Saronic islands included in the Saronic Islands Yacht Charter has a unique feel and culture, so you can alternate between classical heritage, resort beaches, exquisite architecture and remote escapism.
Aegina is home to a spectacular Doric temple of Aphaea, while nearby pine-clad Agkistri is protected and peaceful outside of the booming midsummer months. The Saronic showpiece, Hydra, is a gorgeous car-free island with grey-stone mansions and Byzantine-tiled vernacular houses. Hydra has attracted the artists and fashion buffs since the 1950’s. It is one of the few islands declared an Architectural Heritage Reserve, which has helped Hydra retain its original beauty through strict building controls and the banning of most motorized vehicles. Pine-scented Spetses has a vibrant nautical history and pretty town architecture. Take a romantic trip around the island in horse-drawn carriages and admire the grand mansions adorning the narrow, cobbled streets of the island.
