Our recommended yacht cruises in Greece

Le isole e quindi gli itinerari piu rinomati sono quelli che si svolgono nell’arcipelago delle Cicladi tra Paros, Mykonos, Santorini, Milos, Naxos, Andros,  Folegrandos e tante altre (sono 220 venti le isole Cicladi). Ma non per questo gli altri arcipelgahi Greci sono da meno infati non hanno nulla da invidiare neanche le isole Ioniche, il Dodecanneso, le Sporadi, le isole Saroniche e Creta! Anzi se state pensando ad una crociera in barca va tenuto presente il vento Meltemi che soffia incessantemente durante il mese di Agosto (solo la notte cala), quindi se non siete amanti di grandi navigate a vela ma di veleggiate piu tranquille vi consigliamo di evitare le Cicladi durante la stagione del Meltemi. 

Le isole piu belle ed economiche della Grecia sono nelle CIcladi;  Sanorini, Milos, Amorgos, Sikinos, Naxos Cicladi, Koufonissi e Thirassia mentre nel Dodecaneso sono Kos, Kastellorizo, Rodi, Symi poi tra le isole Ioniche abbiamo Cefalonia e Zante.
