The Saronic Gulf, Argolic and Peloponnese

Sprinkled over the Argosaronic Gulf – the Gulf of Athens – and steeped in ancient mythology, these islands are small havens in close proximity to Athens. Daily ferry connection from the port of Piraeus makes them a lovely, easily accessible all-year-round destination for the Athenians. Charter yacht guests will enjoy natural beauty, historical treasures, unique architecture, and glamorous, yet still romantic atmosphere.

With easy sailing and short distances the Saronic Gulf and Peloponnese makes an ideal destination for a luxury charter yacht. Here are a few of the islands in this region that we recommend:

Aegina

The island of Aegina is one of the most popular destinations as it is the closest island to Athens (only 16.5 nautical miles from the port of Piraeus). According to the myth, the island took its name from a nymph, daughter of the river god Asopos, whom Zeus fell in love with and took with him to the island. Aegina is ideal for families and beachgoers, thanks to its pleasant, protected beaches.

Hydra

Hydra, built in the shape of an amphitheatre on a slope overlooking the Argosaronic gulf, is one of the most romantic destinations in Greece. Traditional stone mansions, narrow cobblestoned streets, secluded squares and an absence of cars, replaced by more than 500 donkeys, are why Hydra has managed to preserve its distinctive atmosphere.

Poros

Poros is known for its lush pine trees, crystal clear waters and sandy beaches, a lively waterfront adorned with shops, cosy cafes and restaurants, a picturesque capital (it has been declared protected settlement) with grand traditional mansions and picturesque cobbled streets. It's also home to a wide selection of entertainment venues, making Poros a cosmopolitan, interesting island that suits charter yacht guests of all ages and inclinations.
