7 Reasons Why You Should Visit Greece, Like Right Now

By MedSailors Crew published on 9 June 2018

We don’t know if the Saronic Islands are currently on your list of must-visit destinations, but here are a handful of reasons why we think you should probably be in them, like, right this second.

Sailing Greece with friends - Watch the sunset on amazing islands

Uhh, so have you ever seen Greek food?

We’re just gonna say that it’s amazing and we’ll let you discover this one for yourself. Although…

You’ll get to eat a breakfast of champions every single day

Taking ‘breakfast is the most important meal of the day’ to new heights, Greek breakfasts are something else. And that coffee, though! Don’t miss out.

Saronic Islands landscapes are pretty special

With stunning seascapes in one direction, mountainous landscapes in another, and rolling green hills dotted with orange groves, vineyards, and interspersed with ancient architecture and gorgeous villages, every direction reveals a new incredible vista that will probably leave you speechless.

The beaches are also, you know, not disappointing

Your sailing trip itinerary will necessitate your spending a fair amount of time on some of the Saronic Islands’ most spectacular stretches of coastline. We know, it’s a hard life. For real though, think everything from white deserted island style beaches to secluded coves and untouched sea grottos. Nice!

Uncover centuries of history on your sailing trip

You don’t have to be a history buff to appreciate the majesty of Athens, the amazing acropolis ruins and intact amphitheatre of Epidavros, and all the myths and legends you’ll hear throughout your trip.

Meet Hydra’s donkeys

It’s good donkey etiquette to ask their owners if you can take a picture or pet them (the donkeys, not the owners!) but they’re used to the hustle and bustle of busy towns so you don’t need to worry about walking past them in the islands’ often-narrow streets.

Let’s not forget about the nightlife

All this talk of dreamy landscapes and tranquil seclusion might make it sound like Saronic Island nightlife is a bit non-existent. But that’s not the case. We’ve got your bar, club, and beach party needs covered, don’t you worry!
