Marathonos

Marathonos is a bay just north of Perdika on Aegina island. There’s a small beach in the south east corner and several restaurants ashore. However, for more atmosphere, Perdika is only about a half a mile walk away and is highly recommended for a visit.

Marathonos offers fairly good shelter, especially in the south east corner. It’s a usable retreat if you find Perdika is full. But to me, if there were a choice, I’d take Perdika every time.

    More about the Hvar Flotilla

    The Trogir flotilla sails from Zaton, near Sibenik. The nearest airport is Split, about 50-60 minutes drive away. The operator offers optional airport transfers.

    Split is well served by direct flights from the UK. These are mainly with the low cost carriers though Croatia Air offer flights from Heathrow (generally expensive).

    The associated RYA Sailing School offers RYA Day Skipper, ICC and Competent Crew courses. These can either be done by taking an instructor on board, or taking a berth on a Tuition Yacht. You can also join the Tuition Yacht as a spectator only. This enables those not wanting a yacht to themselves to sail with the flotilla.

     

    Smokvica

    The island of Smokvica is a popular stopping off point for those heading north in to the Kornati National Park. There’s no ferry service so it’s lucky you have a yacht!

    The large hill is worth a climb for the views from the top across the park.

    There’s just one bay, Lojena, on the south side. It’s sheltered from all bar winds from the south.

    The island is uninhabited except by a few restaurant staff in the summer. There are two restaurants which provide quay space (provided you eat at their restaurant) or it’s possible to anchor with a line ashore.

    Zminjak

    Zminjak is a small island about a mile north of Murter. It’s uninhabited apart from the staff of the single restaurant. There’s no ferry service to the island so you need your own boat to get there!

    It’s a pretty spot but you may be disturbed by the regular passage of other boats, though things quieten down in the evening. It’s well sheltered aside from winds from the west or south west.

    Like most Croatian anchorages, it now has mooring buoys though there’s also a long jetty stretching our from the restaurant. You pay 200kn (2019) to moor or it’s free if you eat at the restaurant.

    There’s a pebbled beach which is very easy to get to: Just walk down the jetty!

    Fort Rose

    Fort Rose lies at the tip of the Lustica peninsula. It stands guard over the entrance to the Bay of Kotor.

    As the importance of the fortifications declined, the settlement became just a small fishing village. In more recent times, it has become a rather chic tourist destination.

    In truth there’s little here; a stoney beach, a couple of restaurants and some cottages. Oh, and the modern boutique hotel, built in to what was the fort.

    For sailors, it’s main significance is as a convenient stopping off point for yachts going between Croatia and Montenegro. Don’t expect major provisioning opportunities as the village has poor road connections. However, it’s a nice place to chill out for a night.

    • Alkyion (Alkionidhes) Islands The Alkyion Islands are a lovely place to spend the day. You can stay overnight if conditions are favourable. Also known as Kala Nisia (Nice Islands) the group consists of Daskalio, Prasonisi, Glaronisi and Zoodochos Pigi. The Islands are tucked away at the north eastern end of the Gulf of Corinth.

    • Antikyra (Andikirion) Antikyra is one of the main towns on the northern coast of the Gulf of Corinth. With its workman-like seafront of tavernas and shops, it makes a welcome change from the beach holiday villages that make up the usual fare for this coastline. Famous in ancient times for the healing qualities of its black and white ... Read more
    4: Tue33
    • Trizonia The island of Trizonia is a strange mixture of laidback charm, unfinished business and postcard views. A sleepy backwater that once had aspirations of becoming a yachting hub, Trizonia has had a clean up in recent years but sadly still hasn’t succeeded in realising its marina dream. Which may be no bad thing. Trizonia is unique ... Read more

    • Galaxidi Galaxidi is one of my favourite ports of call in the Gulf of Corinth. This small dogleg of a harbour with its associated picture-perfect village maintains a semblance of peace despite being “discovered” in recent years. It’s also a handy start point for a visit to Ancient Delphi. If your crew is hankering after some heart ... Read more

    • Saranda Ormos Ay Saranda makes a welcome swim stop or possible overnight anchorage on route along the northern coast of the Gulf of Corinth. The bay is wide and sandy making the holding good but local authorities prefer if you anchor well out from the beach which can put you in fairly deep water. A small harbour ... Read more
    Those wanting more life might want to head for
    • Kiato Kiato is a holiday town on the south coast of the Gulf of Corinth. It’s about 20 miles west of Corinth. The town is popular with Athenians wanting a break from the city as it has a direct rail connection. Kiato was originally focused on citrus and grape farming, and the raisins are allegedly famous. However, ... Read more

    2: Sun25Pass through the Corinth Canal en route to:
    • Agistri / Angistri / Agkistri The small island of Agistri offers a number of beautiful beaches. The cobbled streets and whitewashed house are picture postard Greece. Outside the settlements it’s olive groves and pine forests, which supply the resin used in making Retsina wine. Definitely one for your yacht charter itinerary and since the harbour has been developed, it now features on ... Read more
    3: Mon11
    • Epidavros / Palaia Epidavros The main reason to pause your charter yacht in Palaia Epidavros is to see the impressive and well preserved Greek amphitheatre which dates from 4BC and is still used for performances in high season. However, town itself is pleasant enough and offers several restaurants and shops supplying basic provisions, as well as a couple of excellent bakeries ... Read more

    • Poros The small town, which bears the same name as the island, is only 30 miles from Athens but a world apart. A popular retreat for Athenians, the island retains it’s “Greek-ness”, with a range of traditional restaurants, a fish market, and good selection of small shops providing the necessities of life. There’s also a good range of ... Read more

    • Perdika A charming fishing village, Perdika is one of my favourite spots in the Saronic, with it’s row of restaurants on a terrace overlooking the harbour. Believe it or not, it also boasts the world’s first 360o camera obscura, essentially a huge pinhole camera giving an all around view. Like many Greek villages, Perdika also has some ruins ...

    • Korfos A pretty village set in a well sheltered bay, Korfos offers few facilities beyond a clutch of restaurants and bars, and basic provisions, but is worth a visit. Unusually for the area, the quayside is controlled by the two restaurants who have laid mooring lines.  Use their quay and you’re expected to use their restaurant.  It’s ... Read more

    • Epidavros / Nea Epidavros This small harbour is less known than the larger town further south at Palaia Epidavros. In fact Nea Epidavros town is rarely frequented by yacht charter crews, being about a mile inland from its harbour. The town is virtually invisible from the sea. Nea Epidavros lies at the foot of Mount Akros. It is famed as the location of ... Read more

    Directions to Corinth

    From Athens Airport to Corinth

    Corinth is easy to get to by the Athens Suburban Railway, with just one change in Athens. It’s an hourly service from around 05:00 to 22:00. For the latest timetables see the operator’s website: www.trainose.gr.

    The fare through to Corinth is 12€ (in 2019). The total journey time is around 2 hours.

    At the airport, trains share the station with the Metro. Metro and Suburban trains are on opposite platforms but it’s all clearly signed in English. You want a train to Piraeus, not to Ano Liosia.

    You will need to change trains at Kato Acharnai, on to a train bound for Kiato. Be aware that under the current timetable you don’t get long to change, otherwise you’ve an hours wait for the next train.

    If that’s all too difficult, the yacht operator offers transfers by road from £30 per person one way. Journey time is about an hour and a quarter.
