EAST MEDITERRANEAN YACHT CHARTER DESTINATIONS
Greece & Greek Island Charters
Situated in the northeast of the Mediterranean is the glorious Greek archipelago. It is impressively made up over 3000 islands, of which only 140 are inhabited. These Greek islands are traditionally grouped into the following clusters: the Argo-Saronic Islands; the Cyclades; the North Aegean islands; the Dodecanese; the Sporades; and the Ionian Islands.
Chartering a yacht to explore the Greek Islands is a popular way to not only experience the larger, popular islands, it’s also a fabulous way to encounter some of the smaller, less crowded, out of the way islands and islets. Cruising the Mediterranean waters in this area is an experience that can only delight. Whether you choose just one cluster of Greek islands to explore in detail or would prefer to take in as many ports and Greek charm as you can handle, you’ll be spoilt for choice.
Each island has its own unique style, charm, and history. Clear waters lap against white or red sand beaches. Architecture ranges from the white-washed walls, bright blue rooftops that are the quintessential expectation of the Greek landscape, to cobbled streets, modern shopping outlets and open-air amphitheaters.
In Greece, you will have the opportunity to sample a variety of local cuisine from decadent lamb and seafood dishes to simple, yet tasty, street food. Wine and Ouzo from various regions of Greece are plentiful and delicious. When you charter a yacht in Greece, there is an island for everyone; whether you are seeking quiet laid-back shores to chill and lazily swim and snorkel or lively beaches with open-air bars and all-night parties featuring world-class DJs and entertainment. As well as the ability to access the cosmopolitan vibe of the larger islands like Rhodes, Santorini and Mykonos, from your Charter Yacht you will be able to feast your eyes and whet your explorative appetite on the steeping cliffs, hidden coves and lush forests that adorn the many smaller islands which are also a major drawcard for this wonderful eastern Mediterranean destination.
