Some other reasons why you should pick Greece for your next private yacht excursion are:
Culture: In ancient times Greece was the birthplace of western culture and democracy. The Greek philosophers and scientists pioneered in many sciences: medicine, mathematics, biology, philosophy, chemistry, astronomy, physics, and others. They also introduced populations to the art of acting through Greek tragedy and Greek comedy. Greece has a long history of culture from ancient times, through the Byzantine times up to the present day. Everywhere you go in Greece you see an important monument from the glorious past of ancient Greece!
Natural beauty: If you love nature, you will admire Greece, especially the gorgeous Greek islands! The surroundings invite you to visit the islands year after year and discover something new every single time! Whitewashed villages, clear azure waters, golden beaches, and pine forests near the beaches that make the waters turquoise in some areas, deep blue waters elsewhere... Every island is different and has its own magnificent beauty! The island's "stars" are Mykonos and Santorini. But there are some others like Milos, Siros, Paros, Kea, and Naxos which are worth seeing! Don't leave them aside... they will reward you once you decide to visit!
Sightseeing: Cruise to the island of Delos with your own private yacht or by the local water taxi. Visit Ekatontapiliani in Paros, the industrial museum in Siros, the Milos mining museums, the Marble craft museum in Tinos and the museum of Archaeological and Venetian art on the island of Naxos. The above are just a few museums in the Cyclades islands. There are many more scattered around on the rest of the Greek islands in the Aegean Archipelago. No need to say it is suggested to visit all the archaeological sights in Athens before you start your Greece boat charter!
Climate: Greece celebrates summer from the month of May through October! The summer is usually very hot but dry. Clear skies, it almost never rains. Just a perfect spot for your holidays! In the Cyclades, you can meet some winds in the summer, the famous "Meltemi" winds. These are strong winds that blow somewhere between July and August. During this time of the year, yachting becomes a bit difficult, but not impossible except in extreme situations. The Captain of your private yacht studies the weather conditions constantly and knows exactly when to sail, when not to sail, what to avoid. He is there to make a customized itinerary for you, based on the weather conditions, based on your likes and preferences! Temperatures in July and August are high, they can go over 40 degrees Celsius. In the islands, though, you do not feel high temperatures as much because of the microclimate each island has, the landscape, the open sea, etc. High temperatures are more noticeable in Athens and in other large cities. Generally speaking, the best months to have your Greece Yacht are in June, in early July, in September and at the beginning of October!
Hospitality: Greeks are well known for their hospitality. It is common that a Greek will go out his/her way to help a tourist, to give directions, give suggestions, and immediately assist when someone is lost, etc. Greek mentality and hospitality will blow you away! Everywhere you go, you will meet locals who are eager to make you feel welcome! Greeks will make your holidays feel very special!
Culinary experiences: Greece is famous for its cuisine. Every Greek island has its own recipes. The most famous cuisine in Greece is one on the island of Crete! All islands have their own flora depending on their own microclimate, thus their own herbs, vegetables, fruits, cheese, wines, olive oil, fresh fish and seafood. Due to the perfect climate fruits and vegetables have a superb, distinguished flavor that will overwhelm you! Taste local traditional dishes like moussaka, pastitsio, souvlaki, the Greek local feta cheese, olives, calamari, octopus prepared by locals! The dishes in Greece do not taste the same as you try them in a Greek restaurant in your hometown. Ingredients are different, the way of cooking is also different. Especially, if you go to Crete... you will never forget the Cretan dishes, guaranteed!
Greek Beaches: When you think of a hot sunny holiday you picture yourself on a Greek beach, like one of those pictures you see in the magazines... Visit the scenic seaside villages and spend your day at the beach. Don't stay put if you want, but enjoy the water sports such skiing, playing beach volley with locals, go snorkeling, fishing or rent a wave runner... The barman at the beach bar will keep you refreshed and hydrated so you can have fun from the morning until the sun goes down! These are the holidays you need! Or take your Greece yacht and visit a new beach every day! Do some island hopping and explore all the Greek islands! Does it sound like fun? If you decide to have a private yacht in Greece, plan ahead of time!
Other reasons to visit Greece by your own private yacht are total relaxation, interesting nightlife, it is a family safe and ideal getaway and also a very romantic place for honeymooners!
