Why Yachting in Greece Should Top Your Bucket ListMarch 24, 2017
The setting for yacht charters in Greece is historic and the best way to see this country is by boat. The island groups that makeup this nation include The Cyclades, Dodecanese, Sporades, and Ionians, each consisting of many individual islands. They each offer something different, but yachting in Greece does have some constants: starry skies, jumping fish, cool breezes and calm waters.
The Ideal Boating Climate
As with most yachting destinations, the summer is the ideal time for Greece yacht charters. In the summer, the islands are either calm and hot or windy and dry. There are plenty of booking options for yachting in the summer, but visiting in the off-season isn’t a total no-no – sometimes, it’s even preferred.
The Focus is on the Ocean
Since the country consists of so many small islands, traveling by yacht allows you to see the most of the country in complete luxury. In Greece the ocean is the focus. It supplies the food and the livelihood of many who call this historic country home.
You Can Bring the Kids
Sometimes vacationing in Europe with children can be difficult. However, Greece is not one of those places. It has been said that Greeks spoil their children and make it a point to run their life up to their wedding night. If you’re traveling through Greece, whether by sea or land, your children will be welcomed in restaurants and other public places.
You Can Go “Off the Beaten Path”
For many vacationers, being around other vacationers is no vacation. If you’re looking to get away from the noise and change in atmosphere that comes with the height of any tourist season, Greece is the place. Our team can help you research a Greece vacation with less people and more green landscape.
You would be making a mistake to travel to Greece and not overindulge in the cuisine. Greek food is healthy by most standards – much more so than the American diet – and consists of grains, wheat, barley, meat, fruit, vegetables and cake.
Some classic Greek dishes include:
- Greek salad
- Fried squid
- Florina peppers
- Avgolemono (egg, lemon soup)
- Baked lamb
- Melitinia cookies
- Cheese (primarily feta and Graviera)
The view in Greece is diverse, which is what makes it so great. You can see, often from one vantage point, mountains, olive groves, the ocean and hills of white houses. It is a view that is hard to compare to anything in the United States. Greece is an Instagram-worthy destination that won’t leave your followers displeased.
