SARONIC GULF

The Saronic islands feature some of the best off-the-beaten-path destinations in all of Greece.  This route is perfect for guests looking for an authentic greek island sailing experience.  The sailing consists of calmer seas, shorter sail times, and opportunities for longer swim stops between islands.   The Saronic is renowned for its lush landscape, stunning neoclassical architecture, and vibrant restaurant and nightlife scene.  These islands give you the opportunity to visit archaeological sites, cliff jump into the Aegean, hike ancient paths, and take donkey rides through cobblestone streets.

We sailed to the Saronic islands, stopping each night at another great island. We ate in wonderful restaurants, and cooked breakfast and lunch on board (stores everywhere to shop). We also stopped in great beach coves to swim.

The Saronic Gulf islands are incredible... you don't hear much about them in the US, but they are really spectacular.
