One such island is Agistri. Situated near Aegina, Agistri is a popular destination for those sailing in Greece, and it is a warm and welcoming environment for visitors. There is the opportunity to dive underwater and witness the ruins of the shipwreck Avantis or explore the island by hiring a scooter – both of which offer differing but unrivalled views of what makes Greece so special.

Another great place to visit is Ermioni. Long inhabited and with much to discover about the fascinating heritage of Greece, Ermioni offers amazing views over the surrounding sea to the nearby islands. Holidaymakers here should make the most of the fantastic cuisine on offer before watching the sunset, cocktail in hand, from the deck of your own boat.

Lastly, a visit to Spetses will live long in the memory. This island is renowned for its love of sailing, hosting classic yacht races in the summer months which are a must-see. Those visiting at other times of the year will not be left disappointed, though, as Spetses is home to a wide range of sophisticated and stylish bars – it’s the perfect place to relax and unwind before continuing your sailing adventure.
