It is by far the most popular destination for those who are spending their holidays on board luxury yachts as you can easily sail from one island destination to another. The islands within the gulf boasts of the best beaches in all of Greece, and their terrain features lush vegetation and densely covered forest areas. And if you are looking for abundant sunshine and calm azure water, then Saronic Gulf is definitely the best holiday destination.

Yacht Charter Experience in Saronic Gulf

It is a wonderful Greece yachting experience – this is how seasoned yacht charter enthusiasts describe their holiday in the Saronic Gulf. The region cuts the eastern section of the isthmus in the Corinth region. The gulf was named after one of Greek’s illustrious figures – King Saron. The best holiday resorts are usually found along its shoreline starting from Poros Island all the way to Epidarus.

Popular destinations include the bays of Phaleron, Faliro, Elefsina and Kechires. Having one of the most naturally-gifted topography, the region offers the best places for exciting trekking and hiking. Among the various islands in the Saronic Gulf, the islands that are visited by a great number of sailors and holidaymakers on board luxury yachts include the Aegina, Poros and Salamis.

Among all popular destinations in Greece, the Saronic Gulf offers the most number of yacht charter possibilities. It is also the most convenient and practical sailing option for most yacht charter aficionados, as it is just a few hours sailing time from mainland Athens and other important island destinations within the region.

It is a popular sea route among yacht charter aficionados, and majority of sailors and tourists spending their holiday on board Greece charter yachts dock at the ports of Aegina, Poros and Hydra. The wind direction during the summer months is largely dependent on your location in the Gulf. The prevailing summer winds in the Saronic Gulf are typically that of Greek meltimi winds.

Even so, by local standards, the region offers the best yachting possibilities as, unlike in Cyclades, the meltemi in the Saronic Gulf is generally irregular in wind. Yacht charter enthusiasts will find the prevailing winds within Methana and Poros not really that fierce. In fact, the gulf has been considered by seasoned sailors and tourists as having the most ideal sailing areas in all of Greece.

When planning for a Mediterranean holiday on a luxury yacht in this area, you might want to consider Saronic Gulf in your itinerary as this part of Greece can be a great place to spend your yacht charter holiday.
