Lavrion Yacht Charter

A Lavrion yacht charter can make an interesting starting point for a luxury Greek yachting holiday in the Cyclades. It is located some 60 km off the City of Athens. Lavrion is located in the bay area of the Attica Region overlooking Makronisus Island.

Before it became an important destination for Mediterranean yacht charter sailing aficionados, Lavrion was known for its thriving silver mining industry and was a major prime mover of the burgeoning economy of Athens. Over the years, the focus gradually shifted to tourism, and it eventually became its primary industry as the resort destination became a favorite jump-off point by tourists and superyachts travelling to Cyclades.

As it is near the City of Athens, Lavrion can be easily accessed from Athens International Airport, Greece’s biggest international airport and a short 37-km drive from this popular holiday destination. Transfers to various locations within the city and its periphery are made through taxis and shuttle services. To get to Lavrion from the City of Athens and the International Airport, you must take E94 Road and drive down south.
