Kalamaki Yacht Charter

Kalamaki is considered by sailors and tourists as a distinct town separate from the other Greek towns and a great place to travel to on your Greece yacht charter. The truth is that this popular Mediterranean yacht charter destination is actually a contiguous district of Athens. It lies on the southeast section of the city and is known to have one the most sprawling marinas in all of Greece.

Because of its close proximity to Athens and being the primary point of entry of most tourists to the region, Kalamaki easily comes off as the chosen destination for superyachts and charter yachts. In fact, Kalamaki accounts for most number of tourists and sailors going to Greece that uses it as the starting point for their Greece yacht charter holiday than any other important resort towns in the region.

Main Appeal of Kalamaki for Luxury Yachts

The main appeal of Kalamaki is its enormous size. This makes it possible for the marina to accommodate more luxury yachts and even superyachts than any other marinas in Greece. This is the reason why many superyachts make Kalamaki the first stop and jump off point for their Greek cruise. Within Kalamaki, you will also find Marina Alomas, which is a short 15- minute drive from another important Greek port – the Port of Piraeus.

Another reason why Kalamaki is the perfect starting point for your yacht charter holiday is that it features an array of shops and establishments that carry all the necessary supplies and items that you will need for your yacht rental. However, if you are planning for some serious shopping, the main district of Athens is the perfect destination. During the weekends, local residents go to Kalamaki for relaxation and mix with the tourists and yacht charter crowds.

Main Attractions and Interesting Places

Kalamaki suburb is generally dominated by tall buildings that line a labyrinth or network of narrow streets. Your day activity in Kalamaki will logically include all important and popular landmarks and attractions of the city of Athens. Thus, a typical itinerary for a yacht charter holidaymaker in Kalamaki and other sections of the City of Athens will include historical buildings, ruins and remnants of old Greece and museums.

If you find the local market in Kalamaki not enough to whet your appetite for shopping, you can simply proceed to the main district of the City for some serious shopping binge. Most of the local boutiques and outlets are located in the old section of the town and along the Port of Piraeus.

There are just a handful of restaurants and food outlets in Kalamaki. At best, these food venues will serve you snacks and light dining fare. But if you are looking for a fancy treat of local cuisine, then the main district of the City is the ideal place to go. For an authentic gastronomic treat in the City, the best place to go is the Plaka region, where you can find the finest restaurants serving a wide variety of delectable recipes as well as local cuisine.

There are just a few bars within Kalamaki, and at best, nightlife in this section of the city is just about a quiet and leisurely drink. If you want to experience the festive nightlife in Athens, then you should take a short taxi ride to the old section of the city where the narrow streets are lined by several bars and other interesting nightspots.

Kalamaki is the first stop of your yacht charter holiday in Greece. In fact, this part of the city is actually where your journey to the amazing and exciting places in Greece begins.
