1: Sat0Check in.
  • Athens Kalamaki (Alimos) Kalamaki Marina is home to countless charter companies and is easily reached from Athens Airport, less than 20 miles (30km) away.  It is also handy for the centre of Athens, 5 miles (8km) to the north. There’s even a beach next door. That’s the good news. On the other hand, although it has improved greatly since ... Read more

  • Aegina Town Aegina town, on the island of the same name, is known for its pistachio nuts and natural sponges. Alongside the harbour front cafes you’ll find an excellent fish market complete with several fish restaurants, and boats on the quay selling fruit and veg. One can’t help but think the fruit should be in the market and the fish ... 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

  • 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

  • Vathi Vathi is a sweet little place with just two or three restaurants, no shops, one bar and a volcano (inactive)! It’s a small fishing harbour with limited space so one to avoid on Friday and Saturday nights when it gets over run with boats out from Athens for the weekend. The three restaurants are unremarkable which ... 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

  • Ermioni This bustling town, built on a peninsula, seems to be a latecomer to tourism. The north side of the peninsula, known as Limania, provides the harbour and all the facilities you would expect of a small town, including chemists, excellent bakeries, banks with ATM’s and various general stores. There’s even a small hypermarket within walking ... Read more

  • Porto Heli / Port Kheli This large almost totally enclosed bay is a popular water sports centre, though popular with bareboat charter skippers more for the excellent shelter. Porto Heli offers copious mooring space, courtesy of the long quay built when the bay was intended to become a NATO base. A sandy beach runs along the north shore in front of a line ... Read more

  • Hydra Hydra is a must see destination for any Saronic Cruise. The former artists colony still relies on donkeys to transport everything from food to fridges along the cobbled streets, the only mechanised transport being a couple of dust carts. The bustling harbour is ringed with restaurants and gift shops selling everything from tacky souvenirs to highly priced designer attire ... Read more

  • 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. ...
