Greece Yacht Charters
Known for their beauty and historic significance, the lovely Ionian Islands off Greece’s northwestern shores are among the most attractive in the Mediterranean. They offer every pleasure from beautiful beaches and lively tavernas to snug harbors and intriguing archaeological sites.
Greece is a popular destination not only because of its amazing islands but also because the mainland offers plenty of options for a memorable Mediterranean holiday. Explore unspoiled fishing villages full of tranquil charm, tower towns, traditional stone-built villages or try the exciting city breaks on offer. Visit archaeological sites, learn more about the country’s fascinating culture, travel along the spectacular coastline and enjoy its picture-perfect scenery!
The country includes 6,000 islands and islets scattered in the Greek Seas, of which only 227 islands are inhabited. The Greek coastline offers a diverse landscape: beaches stretching over many kilometers, sheltered bays and coves, sandy beaches, sand-dunes, pebble beaches, wetlands and deltas, caves formed by seawater, and dark-coloured sand in volcanic areas.

When To Go
The yacht charter season in Greece starts late March and ends in November. High season begins in June and ends in September, making some areas quite crowded. The most crowded areas will be Corfu, Lefkas and the Saronic Gulf. If snorkeling and swimming is paramount, early May to mid June is the best time. Yacht Charters in Greece tend to be the most expensive in August.
Regions Worth Highlighting
Scattered off the western coastline of Central Greece and to the south of Peloponnese, the Ionian Islands are an island group comprising large and small islands.
The Peloponnese’s east shoreline and the islands dotting the Argolic & Saronic Gulf waters are popular tourist destinations in close proximity to Athens. Salamina, Aegina, Agistri, Poros, Hydra, and Spetses can offer their visitors memorable experiences that include views of beautiful land & seascapes, impressive archaeological sites, museums, stately homes, picturesque villages and wonderful beaches.
The most famous island group in the Aegean Sea comprises 33 islands and inlets, some of the most beautiful islands in the world! Gorgeous sandy beaches, architecture in white and blue, traditional lifestyle, folk music, warm, hospitable people and barren landscapes with isolated chapels turn a trip to the Cyclades into a lifetime experience.
Why Charter a Yacht in Greece?
Remarkable ancient history
Greece is known as the birthplace of democracy and Western civilization. Remnants still stand of ancient Greek and Minoan civilizations with well-preserved monuments, artifacts, and ancient sites.
Greece has an architecture that dates back as far as 600 B.C. Many visitors come to enjoy its temples, most of which are in ruins, though some are quite intact. Greece is also known for its open-air theaters, which date from Hellenic times, around 350 B.C. Additionally, there are public squares, mausoleums, gateways, and colonnades.
Great local cuisine and wine
While in Greece, charter guests take advantage of the delicious Greek cuisine and wine offerings, which are an important part of the culture.
Sampling the delicious moussaka, a staple of most Greek meals is a must. This oven-baked casserole includes eggplant and spiced meat filling, topped with a creamy béchamel. Baklava should also be on your trip menu. It’s a crunchy, sweet pastry made of flaky phyllo dough and cinnamon-spiced nut filling, covered in syrup. Yacht charters to Greece will typically serve these dishes on-board, but nothing can compare to eating them fresh when visiting the islands.
As for beverages, white wine is popular in the warm lands of Greece. The lovely Assyrtiko, a Santorini varietal, has a light lemon and fruity flavor. Or sample a Restina wine, a white that’s infused with the sap of the Allepo pine tree and a Greek specialty.
Greece yacht charters can provide guests with unique views of the more than 6,000 islands and islets throughout the Aegean and Ionian seas. Beaches range from pristine white sands to deep black in color. Greece has it all: pebble beaches, sheltered bays, coves, coastal caves, wetlands, rocky interiors, calderas, and olive groves!
The coastline of Greece, including the islands, is almost 10,000 miles long. You can find sandy beaches, pebble shorelines, darkened caves, and steep rock walls. There are many inlets, bays, and peninsulas along the shoreline, making for excellent cruising and water sports. This incredible coast makes Greece the perfect destination for yacht charters.
Whether you prefer a traditional white-sand beach, an elegant pebble beach, or a unique black-sand beach, the islands of Greece can provide it. You will be able to locate both secluded beaches with not a soul in sight and popular beaches with partygoers or families.
