The places in which we'll moor and which we'll visit, thanks to the sailing boat, are magical and enchanted sites, where time seems to have stopped, almost suspended between past and present. During this sailing cruise week, we'll discover wild and untouched islands surrounded by crystal-clear water, where inhabitants often move on the back of mules. The wind in this area is not too strong, this is why we can sail quietly and pleasantly.
The areas that will be covered by the route of the sailing cruise include:
- Spetses: a small and nice island. Its inhabitants are friendly and calm. The main city of Spetses is really pretty and rich in ancient buildings from which a strong military tradition comes out. There are many house-museums open for visitors. Agios Nikolaos Monastery is located just few kilometers from the city of Spetses and it's also open to visitors, but it is necessary to wear suitable clothes to enter. The sea bottoms are wonderful, and those who love snorkeling will fall in love with them. The beaches are both sandy and pebble, Agia Paraskevi and Agia Anargyri are the most famous. Finally, Spetses also offers several bars and meeting points to spend nights with friends.
- Hydra: it's a gem of the Saronic Gulf, here it appears that time has stopped. On the island there are no motor vehicles. It is a wild island which boasts architectural examples belonging to two centuries ago. Moreover, it's typical to see donkeys decorated with fake flowers, which are used to transport visitors.
- Poros: it is for sure one of the less known islands, this is why it is very quite and calm. It is inhabited only by 4,500 people and it's the perfect place for spending some hours to relax. Here it is possible to trek along its several paths, which lead to the most interesting spots on the island, or discover the lemon forest to the south. Love Bay is another unmissable place. This stunning cove hosts a picturesque pinaster forest, which runs into the crystal-clear sea. Finally, it is also possible to visit the Archaeological Museum, the Museum of Sea and the Monastery, that is never missing on a Greek island.
- Aegina: it is located in the heart of Salonic Gulf and close to Piraeus. It has the shape of an amphiteatre looking onto the sea, and its port boasts the presence of the small and white church of Agios Nikolaos. At sunset the sky seems to burn and offers unforgettable views. Do not forget to visit the fish market as well as to try the traditional restaurants, where luncheon and ouzo are served. Aegina boasts several wonderful sandy beaches, some of the most popular are located in the southern part, and are: Aeginitissa, Vaya, Marathonas and Perdika.
The route can be varied any time according to the skipper's decisions, particularly due to weather conditions.
