All About 

Greece

With over 6,000 different islands and islets located in the Aegean and Ionian Seas, of which only 170 are inhabited, Greece is a must-visit destination. However, with over 15 international airports and so many different islands, it can be a little bit overwhelming choosing where to go first. And we don’t blame you as the Greek islands have a little bit of something for everyone. 

If you are looking to relax, then head on over to the Saronic Islands or the Northern Aegean. Aegina is full of fishing villages and is famous for its seafood dishes. Make sure to try some ouzo in Lesvos. If partying is more your thing, then make sure to visit the Cyclades. Dance the night away in Mykonos or Ios before heading to Santorini to enjoy stunning views and unforgettable sunsets. If you have time, visit Crete, the birthplace of Zeus and the largest island in Greece. If you are searching for one-of-a-kind beaches, then head on over to the Dodecanese Islands. Enjoy thermal baths at Agios Fokas beach or lie in the sand on Kos. Soak up nature and go hiking in the Sporades. The islands of Skiathos and Skopelos are known to be green, lush, and fertile. 

Fast Facts About 

Greece

  • The currency in Greece is the Euro. ATMs are widely available in major cities and tourist destinations.
  • Embrace island-hopping. Make sure you don’t stick to one island per trip, make the most out of your Greek holiday by visiting a couple of islands. Chartering a yacht is a much easier option as booking ferries can become complicated and expensive, especially during the peak season when prices are higher and many routes are either sold out or not running. Yachting means that you can visit all the islands on your list without the hassle of booking ferries. 
  • Make sure that you spend some time in Athens. Take the time to visit the Acropolis and Parthenon, take a pre-dinner stroll, do some local shopping and enjoy a local Greek feast topped off with some ouzo. 
  • Some foods you need to try while in Greece include moussaka, papoutsakia, souvlaki, and seafood.

Best time to visit 

Greece

The best time to visit Greece is between May and September, which is also the peak season. July and August are the hottest, busiest, and most expensive months. If you are looking to avoid the crowds, you can still visit the country during shoulder seasons: April-May and September-October. During these months, the weather is still warm, but the crowds are more manageable. However, if you plan to visit Greece outside of the summer season, be aware that many internal flights and island ferries run on reduced schedules.

Chartering in 

Greece

With over 200 islands to visit, chartering a yacht in the Greek isles seems like the obvious choice. Instead of organizing internal flights, checking ferry schedules, and running from island to island, unpack all of your belongings on board before being whisked off to the island of your choice. Wake up every morning at a new location and explore the Greek islands as they were meant to be explored.
