Why take a sailing vacation?
Sailing with a yacht is an alternative way to travel to the Greek islands, to see unique landscapes, to discover hidden beaches and to reach secret places, which can only be approached by boat. They give you complete freedom of movement but also unique privacy when you want it. At the same time, especially this year, it offers maximum security.
Sailing was one of the first and supreme forms of travel as at its base it did not need a machine to travel the boat. Today, although there have been huge changes in the evolution of boats, even when we hear the word sailing we combine it with either racing or “suffering”. Something that is completely wrong.
Sailing holidays are an alternative, this year safer than ever and a unique way to travel to enchanting landscapes that you can only see by boat. This is because it provides you with complete freedom of movement but also unique privacy when you wish. In addition, you do not need to have previous experience for this type of vacation, as there are experienced captains who know awesome locations that will be unforgettable.
Sailing holidays are unique for both groups and families, but it is important to note that depending on the age of the children in each family
Sailing vacation is a type of vacation used (it is mainly known) by people coming to our country from abroad. We would say that it is a pity in some places that people outside Greece know our homeland better.
This year more than ever is a great opportunity for Greeks to travel by boat as prices will be more affordable than ever.
For foreigners, Greek summer means Greek islands. And for many of them, holidays in Greece mean sailing holidays.
However, while sailing is a popular holiday destination for Italians, Central Europeans and Americans alike, this is not the case with Greeks. It would be an oxymoron, but in fact the Greeks, with their rich naval history and the sea in its ideal version easily accessible from almost any part of the country, rarely choose this type of vacation.
The timing for this to change seems ideal this year: On the one hand, the boat offers what is necessary for the period we are going through social distancing. And, on the other hand, the prices are lower while the availability of boats is higher. Thus, the exciting experience of a sailing vacation looks more charming, more affordable and smarter than any other year.
