Greece is famous for its many beautiful islands, which are just perfect for exploring on a sailing adventure. But the mainland itself also has plenty to entice visitors with a range of entertaining activities and some of the best in traditional food and drink. Aside from the capital city of Athens, the peninsula of Ermioni is also a perfect destination when enjoying a Greece sailing trip.

Visiting Greece - See more than just the islands

It really offers the best of both worlds: the nature of its geography gives it a sense of openness similar to the Greek islands, whilst the fact it remains connected to the mainland makes it easily accessible.

Ermioni is, as much of Greece is, historically significant, but in recent years it has become best known for a brilliant variety of water sports enjoyed by those local to the area and those visiting from elsewhere. It’s no surprise that snorkelling is one of the most frequently enjoyed activities, as the sea here is as blue as can be. Furthermore, the water is the natural habitat of some truly remarkable sea creatures, and snorkelling is the best way to see them.

Not only is Ermioni perfect for water sports, packed with welcoming bars and eateries and brimming with beautiful scenery, but it was also once home to Poseidon, the Greek god of the sea. Don’t miss it when you are sailing around the Greek coast.
