The Perfect Point of Departure for Your Greece Sailing Getaway

By MedSailors Crew published on 15 November 2015

When it comes to beginning your Greece sailing adventure, there is no better place to do so than Athens. As the country’s capital, it has plenty to offer tourists from all walks of life, and it is the perfect starting point for your getaway. And of all the marinas where you could make your departure, Alimos is one of the finest.

As one of the largest marinas in not just the city but the country, Alimos is always abuzz with excitement and adventure. Perfectly positioned at less than 10 miles from the city centre, the marina is easily accessed by all forms of transportation. If you decide to arrive at Alimos with plenty of time to spare before your boat leaves the dock, you will find lots to see and do.

Alimos beach itself is a fine example of what makes Greece such a perennially popular holiday destination. With golden sands and blue sea, it is a great place to relax in anticipation of your boat’s departure. Be prepared, though, to share the beach with plenty of other revellers, as it’s a popular choice with locals and tourists alike. There is a play area for younger holiday-goers, cafes offering great food and drink and even the chance to experience some amazing water sports. What more could you want?
